    IFFBoston Review: 'Terri' Follows An Odd Budding Bromance

    Azazel Jacobs has built a career on slow-moving portraits of everyday life. He first came to the indie scene’s attention with “Momma’s Man,” a film that wowed Sundance audiences in 2008.

    IFFBoston Review: 'Bellflower' Is A Homespun Work Of Love

    One of the great things about watching films on the festival circuit is that reviewers get to see some crazy films. “Bellflower” was the strangest this writer has seen in a long time. It’s a film that will probably get a very small audience, but with a little cleaning-up, there’s an opportunity for ...

In every bar in the country, there is someone drinking away his regrets, trying to make peace with the records they didn’t break and the hearts they didn’t soothe. Michael Cuesta’s “Roadi...

    Tribeca Reviews: Rwanda's First Film 'Grey Matter,' France's 'My Piece Of The Pie,' 'Cairo Exit'

    "My Piece of the Pie"When "The Company Men" arrived, people found it difficult to have sympathy for the three main characters -- each was an upper-class employee being fucked over by an even richer fat cat. Maybe it would've done some good to have one of the prominent characters be working class (Kevin Costner fills that void, though he's a side character that serves only to tease Ben Affleck and, in the end, teach him a lesson), as a character losing his BMW and country club privileges is only going to induce eye-rolls. French film "My Piece of the Pie" at first splits its time between power broker Steve (Gilles Lellouche, "Tell No One") and...

    IFFBoston Review: 'Dragonslayer' A Fantastic Portrayal Of Modern Skateboarding Man

    Though many haven’t seen Tristan Patterson’s documentary “Dragonslayer” yet, there’s a high probability that it will be one of the most talked about documentaries of the year, much like last year’s “Catfish” or “Exit Through the Gift Shop.” The film follows West Coast skateboarder Josh “Skreech” San...
