‘Lampoon’ is a Seriously Good Comedy Lesson

BY SEAN EGAN  |  While not everyone can claim intimate familiarity with the early work of National Lampoon, the highly influential magazine’s distinctive brand of humor and ideology is certainly still felt today. The Lampoon and its alumnus successfully reached their tendrils into almost every medium of entertainment, making the publication ground zero for modern […]

Different People in a Common Pursuit

Different People in a Common Pursuit

BY STEPHANIE BUHMANN  |  In March of 2014, the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention released a new, alarming statistic. In the United States, one in every 68 children is diagnosed with an autism spectrum disorder. That is nearly twice as many as reported in 2000. Current studies question whether autism is an unfortunate bi-product […]

‘Far From Men’ Cuts Close to the Bone

‘Far From Men’ Cuts Close to the Bone

BY RANIA RICHARDSON  |  In a spare tale that considers the futility of neutrality during wartime, writer/director David Oelhoffen’s “Far From Men” (Loin des Hommes) is an absorbing look at the nascent Algerian War for Independence in the 1950s. Daru (Viggo Mortensen), an Algerian-born Frenchman, and Mohamed (Reda Kateb), his Arab charge who is due […]

Tribeca Film Fest Trending West

Tribeca Film Fest Trending West

  BY SCOTT STIFFLER  |  Old enough to assert itself but young enough to learn new tricks, the 14th edition of the Tribeca Film Festival is back where it started. Here we go round again — this time with a new multi-screen venue, a sprawling events hub and prestige premieres all taking place on the […]

Female Directors Well-Represented at Tribeca Film Festival

Female Directors Well-Represented at Tribeca Film Festival

BY DUSICA SUE MALESEVIC  |  While Hollywood continues its trend toward a dearth of female directors, the Tribeca Film Festival has bucked it — featuring work from 30 women, in a lineup unspooling April 15–26. Cara Cusumano, senior programmer, said that the festival has always been supportive of female directors and noted that it was […]

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 […]

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 […]

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 […]
