LONG LOST Review

The main point of interest in Long Lost cannot be talked about, but the meandering journey to the film's destination makes it well worth it.

POKÉMON DETECTIVE PIKACHU Review

With plenty of fan service, Detective Pikachu is a fun romp that will no doubt appeal to both kids who are just discovering Pokemon now with the more recent games and older folks like me who remember trying to “catch ’ em all” (though I never did).

Tribeca 2019: SCHEME BIRDS Review

Scheme Birds just won Best Documentary Feature at Tribeca and with good reason. It’s a beautifully shot, often heartbreaking slice-of-life tale that quickly pulls the viewer in with its captivating lead, who we just want to see turn out okay by the end.

Tribeca 2019: THE GASOLINE THIEVES Review

Although I was gutted by the time it reached its conclusion, The Gasoline Thieves is an assured and tremendously strong feature debut from Edgar Nito, which fluidly blends a coming-of-age drama with a timely and socially conscious topic that has claimed hundreds of lives.

Tribeca 2019: SOMETHING ELSE Review

Something Else is an effective genre blend that will no doubt divide audiences with its focus on the relationship drama over the horror elements, but despite the overabundant hipster vibes and slow pacing, it’s an intriguing film with a few surprises and a handful of solid performances that ultimately delivers a satisfying conclusion.

Tribeca 2019: RED, WHITE & WASTED Review

It may be almost as messy as the trucks heading back from the Yacht Club, but movies like this are a gateway into the nooks and crannies of our country and serve as a sociological time capsule of this time and place.
