Tribeca 2018: CARGO Review

This film gets a strong recommend from me because, despite its rather predictable trajectory, there are enough new elements to keep the content fresh; the martyr theme is well earned; and its message of self-sacrifice is a lovely one.

Tribeca 2018: SLUT IN A GOOD WAY Review

As the adolescent-teen-girl-coming-of-age trend sallies forth, the next entry in this ever-growing sub-genre is Sophie Lorain’s delightful black-and-white comedy Slut in a Good Way.

Tribeca 2018: BRAID Review

Tribeca 2018: THE DARK Review

The Dark is a disturbing, yet oddly touching, feature debut from Justin P. Lange, and while it comes dangerously close to becoming dull at a few spots, it never completely loses its connection with the audience and deftly delivers a tragic, hopeful story about the resilience of human beings and the healing power of the positive connections we have to one another.

Tribeca 2018: SONG OF BACK AND NECK Review

Song of Back and Neck would make for a perfect Netflix Original. It’s an inoffensive, slightly heartwarming comedy with a few recognizable names and a universally relatable plot about the stresses in our lives. Unfortunately, it’s also a fairly bland and forgettable affair, also perfect for Netflix viewing.
