    REVIEW | Why "Hobo with a Shotgun" Is Such Wacky Fun

    The selling point of "Hobo with a Shotgun" is its primal appeal. No less than D.W. Griffith allegedly deemed a girl and a gun as the minimum requirements for any engrossing movie formula. "Hobo" has both, plus ample doses of exagerrated gore, a faded eighties action star, and the giddy, unfocused en...

    REVIEW | Megan Fox, Mickey Rourke and Bill Murray Lose Direction in Awful "Passion Play"

    When "Passion Play" premiered at the Toronto International Film Festival in September, it became the object of instant derision. Variety pointed out the "near-painful hipness," while Screen deemed it "little more than a whimsical curio." The bad buzz snowballed into the imminent release of "Passion ...

    REVIEW | Despite A Loony Mel Gibson, "The Beaver" Is a Tame Dramatic Affair

    Despite a ludicrous set-up based around one of the most outlandish performances of Mel Gibson's career, "The Beaver" is a tame, leisurely drama that neither provides the beleaguered actor with decisive comeback material nor further muddies his tarnished image. As directed by Jodie Foster from the sc...

    TRIBECA REVIEW | What Edward Burns' "Newlyweds" Says About the Future of Cheap Movies

    An ultralight excursion into the urban neuroses of the Woody Allen canon, Edward Burns' 10th feature, "Newlyweds," is a slight relationship comedy that constitutes more of a doodle than a full-fledged movie. Following a small ensemble of characters through a variety of conversations about the ups an...

    TRIBECA REVIEW | Festival Winner "She Monkeys" Puts Sexual Competition in Closeup

    Swedish director Lisa Aschan's "She Monkeys" is a patient study of young female desire. The plot has a simple trajectory: Two teen girls shift from friends to competitors while vying for the top spot of an equestrian acrobatics team. The subtext runs deeper, however, as the coming-of-age story adopts a bleak Darwinian perspective. While her views on developing femininity break no new ground, Aschan maintains a solid grasp on the material. Her script (co-written by Josefine Adolfsson) mainly takes the perspective of Emma (Mathilda Paradeiser), a new addition to the team who's initially encouraged by the seductive Cassandra (Linda Molin) to enj...

    REVIEW | A Natural Museum In 3-D: Werner Herzog's "Cave of Forgotten Dreams"

    In recent years, Werner Herzog's sly observations on the ways the universe in wondrously strange documentaries such as "Grizzly Man" and "Encounters at the End of the World" have taken on cult status apart from his existing place in the history of German cinema. Viral videos contain uncanny imitatio...

    TRIBECA REVIEW | "Revenge of the Electric Car" is a Happy Ending that Doesn't Ask Too Many Questions

    Has Chris Paine sold out? That question lingers throughout "Revenge of the Electric Car," the director's celebratory follow-up to his mournful 2006 exposé "Who Killed the Electric Car?" The first movie focused on the untimely death of the General Motors EV-1 model, a sleek vehicle that carried the h...
