Road Trip to the Past

Road Trip to the Past

BY SCOTT STIFFLER  |  A bygone journey down a straight road “too lazy for turns” comes full circle, in this agreeably meandering homage to the early work of Karpo Godina — an important contributor to the “Black Wave” of Yugoslavian filmmaking. In 1968, 25-year-old Godina is sitting in his apartment, presumably minding his own business […]

Behind Blue Prison Bars in Tbilisi

Behind Blue Prison Bars in Tbilisi

BY RANIA RICHARDSON  |  A  young Georgian woman struggles to hold her life together as she waits for the father of her children to finish a ten-year prison sentence in this fine addition to an ever-expanding body of international incarceration chronicles. The drama is even more poignant with the knowledge that director Tinatin Kajrishvili and […]

Blood Thinner: Indie Auteur Stretches Himself

Blood Thinner: Indie Auteur Stretches Himself

BY SEAN EGAN  |  At one point in “Summer of Blood,” Eric, the movie’s motormouthed protagonist, nonchalantly says that he’d be interested in making a film, and doing the whole “auteur” thing — writing, directing and starring. It’s a winking reference to the fact that the line is delivered by Onur Tukel, writer, director, editor […]

You’re in the Office Now

You’re in the Office Now

BY SEAN EGAN  |  The premise this new dark comedy — an examination of the daily life of young women soldiers working in a military office — is so ripe with narrative possibilities, it’s astounding it hasn’t been used until now. Director Talya Lavie manages to create a supremely confident, highly moving and entertaining first […]

RE/Mixed Media Festival Embraces the Theoretical and the Practical

BY TOM TENNEY | ORIGINALLY PUBLISHED APRIL 17, 2014  |  In November of 2009, four Brooklyn artists sat at a dinner table in Bushwick, discussing the phenomenon of “remix culture,” the informally connected network of students, scholars, organizations, writers and policymakers who advocate for copyright reform and the artistic practice of systematically reworking and transforming existing […]

Drug Mule’s Tale Suffers From its Share of Bull

Drug Mule’s Tale Suffers From its Share of Bull

BY REV. JEN MILLER  |  Disclaimer: I am a screenwriter, an underground movie star and a filmmaker. Yet I am not a fan of film festivals, since they charge entrance fees that anyone who is actually underground can’t afford. This is why, two years ago, I founded “Assdance Film Festival” along with filmmaker Courtney Fathom […]

Tribeca Film Fest, You’ve Got Style

Tribeca Film Fest, You’ve Got Style

BY SCOTT STIFFLER  |  Choosing what you’re going to see at the Tribeca Film Festival on its opening date, April 16, is like waiting the day before to file your taxes. It’s possible, but not practical — and a very good way to end up waiting in line. Full house potentials, broken down by genre […]

The world’s ‘Stag’ is our ‘Weekend’

The world’s ‘Stag’ is our ‘Weekend’

BY SEAN EGAN  |  American audiences are conditioned to expect maximum levels of raucous debauchery from their bachelor party flicks — but “The Bachelor Weekend” provides viewers with a slightly different, more gentle spin on the genre. Released as “The Stag” overseas, this Irish import to the Tribeca Film Festival is a breezy, genial film […]
