Super Dark Times Review [Tribeca 2017]

Super Dark Times? How about Super Fuckin’ Dark Kick-Your-Teeth-In Stressful No Good Very Bad Times. Writers Ben Collins and Luke Piotrowski construct a backyard crime drama – like if Brick followed a cover-up instead of investigation – while debut filmmaker Kevin Phillips acts as visionary/our soul’s executioner. You know what’s going to happen. It’s obvious. That still doesn’t keep this maliciously pitch-black […]

Dabka Review [Tribeca 2017]

Dabka opens with a voiceover from its protagonist, Jay Bahadur (Evan Peters), explaining that he hates voiceover in films because it’s lazy filmmaking. This self-aware smugness unfortunately sets the tone for the entire movie, which wavers between comedy and serious drama without much clear direction or purpose. And it’s a shame, because the true story […]

The Clapper Review [Tribeca 2017]

Some men are born great, some achieve greatness, and some have greatness thrust upon ’em. Dito Montiel’s disarmingly sweet comedy The Clapper is about a man who not only has greatness thrust upon him, but is desperate to avoid greatness altogether. Ed Helms is Eddie Krumble, a quiet little man who makes his living playing an […]

The Trip To Spain Review [Tribeca 2017]

Michael Winterbottom’s The Trip To Spain expands his foodie-humor franchise into a three-course experience. Steve Coogan and Rob Brydon first jested their way through northern England, then conquered Italy’s coastal delicacies while trading wits. So how does Winterbottom’s third helping measure up to previous cuts? With a bit more fat and gristle than hoped, overcooked until the comedic […]

Manifesto Review [Tribeca 2017]

Attempting to codify director Julian Rosefeldt’s Manifesto is like attempting to unify a mass of artistic movements into a clearly defined and coherent whole without contradiction. Which makes sense, as the apparent theme behind Rosefeldt’s film is that the nebulous nature of art defies definition or unification. In Manifesto, artistic movements interact with, react to, […]

Buster’s Mal Heart Review [Tribeca 2017]

Psychological thrillers are ubiquitous right now, so it’s always encouraging to see one that attempts to do more with its narrative than tell the simple story of a man coming apart at the seams. Such is Buster’s Mal Heart, the sophomore effort from writer/director Sarah Adina Smith, an imperfect film that nonetheless stretches itself to […]
