    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...

    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...

    TRIBECA REVIEW | "Flowers of Evil" Constructs a Love Triangle Where Technology is the Third Wheel

    Although it tells an old story, Twitter, YouTube and Facebook are the real stars of the delicate romance "Flowers of Evil." David Dusa's feature-length directorial debut is an intimate portrayal of a cross-cultural romance between a French-Algerian bellhop and the Iranian fugitive he meets in Paris....

    TRIBECA REVIEW | Alex Gibney's "Catching Hell" Puts a Hated Fan in the Spotlight

    Although it contains a whirlwind of talking heads, Alex Gibney's thoughtful baseball documentary "Catching Hell" lacks the one subject who provides its topic: Steven Bartman, the meek Chicago Cubs fan whose ill-fated grab for a foul ball during a pivotal 2003 game arguably played a role in the team'...

    TRIBECA REVIEW | A Jerk Makes Amends In "Despicable Dick and Righteous Richard"

    Richard Kuchera, the supremely flawed subject of Joshua Neale's documentary "Despicable Dick and Righteous Richard," has a personality ready-made for the movies. A recovering alcoholic attempting to make up with everyone affected by his behavior, the North Dakota resident is a tragically slapstick f...

    TRIBECA REVIEW | "Beyond the Black Rainbow" is a Reagan-Era Mindtrip

    Underground art rebels against a standard; "Beyond the Black Rainbow" is an incoherent audiovisual extravaganza for its own sake. The feature-length debut of director Panos Cosmatos, it's a wacky, carefully designed, totally inscrutable science fiction puzzle. With a minimum of plot and consistently...

    TRIBECA REVIEW | Tony Kaye's "Detachment": Great Cast, Awful Movie

    Tony Kaye has a lot to say in "Detachment" and all the wrong tools to say it. It's a shrill and didactic melodrama about the pratfalls of the education system, rendered in shockingly amateur terms. However, there here is an element of sheer spectacle in seeing a top-tier cast assembled for such a de...
