The friendliest kidnappers you’ll ever meet

The friendliest kidnappers you’ll ever meet

BY SAM SPOKONY  |  Stories about abductions which purposely blur the lines of fact and fiction are certainly nothing new — and in fact it was 16th-century tales of Englishmen falling into the hands of Barbary pirates, and then 17th-century recounting of New England colonists taken by Native Americans, that laid the ground for the […]

Of gods and men and women

Of gods and men and women

BY RANIA RICHARDSON  |  Spiritual devotion ripens into carnal passion for a young temple dancer in “Vara: A Blessing.” The modern-day tale is a glimpse into the practices of an intriguing Hindu subculture of devadasis. As a practitioner, Lila (Shahana Goswami) spends her days worshiping Krishna and studying the classical dance form, Bharatanatyam, in her […]

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 […]

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 […]

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 […]

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 […]

You’re in the office now

Photo by Yaron Scharf Drawing on her own military service, Talya Lavie’s debut feature immediately establishes her as a distinctive and original voice. 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 […]

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 […]
