    TRIBECA REVIEW: How 'Journey to Planet X' Critiques the Film Festival World

    The pair of filmmakers featured in "Journey to Planet X" cite no major auteur directors or seminal works of cinema as their influences. Instead, Eric Swain and Troy Bernier want to blow things up and soar through space.

    If every Sundance film festival needs at least one documentary to remind white people of all the great music in the world they don’t know about, at least “Searching For Sugar Man” seems like 2012’s front-runner for the best one. A born crowd-pleaser whose central mystery begets a great triumph of gr...

    Tribeca Review: Keanu Reeves Doc 'Side By Side' A Treat For Cinephiles On All Sides Of The Digital Debate

    Doing an impressive job of tracing the evolution of filmmaking technology (not just the cameras but the editing, post-production, distribution, exhibition, even the archiving aspects of it) from 1895 to the present day, “Side by Side” is an old school talking-head documentary on the subj...

    TRIBECA REVIEW: Andrew Semans' 'Nancy, Please' Puts a Dark Comic Twist on Arrested Development

    The travails of the man child take an intriguing new direction in "Nancy, Please," the feature-length debut of writer-director Andrew Semans. His bumbling anti-hero, hopelessly procrastinatory Yale PhD student Paul (Will Rogers), fits the kind of immature young adult role that might go to Jason Sege...

    Review: Twisty, Action-Packed NYC Noir 'Safe' Is The Finest Jason Statham Actioner Yet

    The de-evolution of the modern b-action movie is disheartening. The genre has been bisected by traditionalists and new-school practitioners.

    Tribeca Review: 'Persepolis' Follow-Up 'Chicken With Plums' Is Amiable & Pretty, But Twee & Thin

    It can be difficult to shift from animation to live-action direction; the processes are very different, and even an accomplished animation helmer can sometimes be undone once they're faced with cameras, actors and the breakneck schedule of a feature film shoot, as opposed to the multi-year process t...

    TRIBECA REVIEW: Why Bradley Rust Grey's 'Jack & Diane' Isn't the Lesbian Werewolf Extravaganza You Hoped For

    Hyped for years as a whimsical project to watch, "Jack and Diane" never finds a coherent hook and instead drowns itself in atmosphere, a danger Gray's earlier films managed to avoid.

    Tribeca Review: The Deeply Insufferable 'Giant Mechanical Man' Is Quintessential Indie Film Hell

    There’s a special sort of Hell where films like “The Giant Mechanical Man” play, with the same ideas and tropes repeated around the clock, with the mistaken assumption that they’re endearing or, even worse, adorable. It’s the sort of picture that gives independent films a bad name, the type of film ...
