    Tribeca Review: 'Room 514' A Talky, Lo-Fi Israeli Version Of 'A Few Good Men'

    Coming off the heels of the formidable "Policeman," a harsh and damning critique of contemporary Israeli society, "Room 514" points a similar analytical eye on its country but comes up with little more than general arguments. Its overly familiar plot and substance weakens its voice and the movie alm...

    Review: 'Girls' Tackles Abortion, Sex & STDs Head On With Heart & Hilarity

    Having already established in the premiere episode that the sex in "Girls" that sex in the show (at least for now) will often be uncomfortable and awkward, the second show of season turns up the cringe factor. As the show opens, Hannah and Adam are in the midst of some fairly routine missionary sex,...

    Review: Armando Iannucci's 'Veep' Off To A Fast, Furious But Only Intermittently Funny Start

    SFIFF 55 Reviews: 'Goodbye,' 'Robot & Frank,' 'How to Survive a Plague,' 'Fourth Dimension'

    Only two films into the day and I’ve already been confronted with political repression, abuse, Down syndrome, and Alzheimer’s. I go to see “The Fourth Dimension,” a trilogy of films created around a set of instructions that sound Dogme-esque but more specific (stuffed animals and bad jokes must be i...

    Tribeca Film Festival Review: Familiar Thriller 'Replicas' Boasts Strong Leads

    If you’re out in the woods in a mansion, don’t open the door to strangers. If you do, and you happen to be in a movie, prepare to be at the wrong end of a shotgun.
