    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...

    "She Monkeys," "Attenberg" Among San Francisco International Film Festival Standouts

    The filmmaking voices that are rewarded at the San Francisco International Film Festival are every bit as quirky as its proudly off-center citizenry. This 15-day affair takes the opposite tack to its cross-country counterpart: Where the Tribeca Film Festival is heavy on premieres but contains only t...
