    Tribeca Review: 'Floating Skyscrapers' Never Dodges The Inevitability Of The Modern Gay Indie Film Tragedy

    Ideally there’d be a way around this, but it appears there is not: if you’re a gay couple in an independent film, things aren’t going to end well for you. The cloud of disaster hangs low over “Floating Skyscrapers,” a Polish drama about two male lovers that begins with the conspicuous, unseen activi...

    Tribeca Review: ‘Almost Christmas’ Is A Mostly Joyless Misfire

    Director Phil Morrison hasn't made a film since his exceptional debut indie, "Junebug," which launched Amy Adams in 2005. Brimming with life, even without the Oscar-nominated and very-worthy firecracker Adams performance, the movie is flush with an idiosyncratic humanity and especially complex and u...

    Tribeca Review: ‘Bluebird’ Is A Well-Observed & Striking Debut About Family, Connectedness & Consequences

    Subtle, nuanced and absorbing, Lance Edmands’ directorial debut “Bluebird” is a remarkable first feature and wise beyond his and its years. Carefully shot, well-observed and featuring terrific performances from an excellent slate of experienced, yet largely unknown actors (aside from the “Mad Men” a...

    OBLIVION

    Truly original science-fiction ideas are few and far between, at least within the realm of Hollywood moviemaking, so "Oblivion" scores points for both its premise and its execution—up to a point.

    Tribeca Review: Safdie Brothers' Poignant, Fascinating 'Lenny Cooke' Not Your Typical Sports Doc

    New York filmmakers Josh and Benny Safdie are known for their irreverent urban narratives "The Pleasure of Being Robbed" and "Daddy Longlegs," both of which contain a naturalistic quality that suggests they could work wonders with non-fiction. With "Lenny Cooke," they've done just that: Partly a fou...

    Tribeca Review: 'Mistaken For Strangers' A Rock Doc About Two Very Different Brothers

    In this age of social media and damage control, it’s particularly difficult to make a rock doc. It’s even more difficult if your subject is The National, a successful rock band that counts The Killers and Arcade Fire as their contemporaries, popular enough to sell out major venues worldwide and even...

    Tribeca Review: 'Mistaken For Strangers' Is Less Rock Doc On The National Than Inoffensive Sibling Rivalry Farce

    While Tom Berninger's "Mistaken For Strangers" is technically rooted in the travels of successful indie rock band The National, it would be inaccurate to characterize it as a rock documentary. Berninger, brother of The National frontman Matt, hardly emphasizes the history of the band's rise or its a...
