Tribeca: ‘Nuked’ is a Cannabis-Infused End-of-the-World Blast

Milestone birthdays can do interesting things to people, forcing them to confront the years they’ve lived and to look ahead to what they may feel isn’t all that much time left as they thought. Blowout celebrations are common, as is the idea of reliving glory days, often prompting reunions with old friends who represent nostalgic…

Tribeca: ‘Swimming Home’ is an Intriguing, Perplexing Character Study

Opening one’s home to a stranger can be seen as an act of generosity, but it also presents a calculated risk. Someone may come claiming the best intentions and have ulterior motives which put everyone who is already within the home in danger. There are those who are inherently more trustworthy because they know that…

Tribeca Festival : ‘In the Summers’ is an Enduring Story of a Father’s Love

Both good and bad instances of parenting can have a lasting effect on children.

But, ultimately, each relationship is individual, and even…

Tribeca: ‘Bang Bang’ is a Compelling Character Study with a Top-Notch Tim Blake Nelson

Every fighter wants to go out on top, and if that’s not the case, they’ll likely either spend the rest of their lives trying to achieve the glory that eluded them or leave it all behind to move on to something else. The former scenario certainly makes for better drama, and that’s part of the…

Associating with…

Tribeca Festival: ‘All That We Love’ is an Upbeat Look at Moving On

The death of a pet is a monumental event that can be extremely shattering but isn’t perceived and respected by society in the same way as the loss of a family member. How deep and personal it feels depends entirely on the person and the relationship they had with that pet, and grief can open…

Tribeca Festival : ‘Come Closer’ is a Poignant Tale of Grief and Bonding

The relationship between two people is an intimate thing that can’t be completely understood by those outside of it. When a relationship ends, for whatever reason, it will be difficult to convey just what exactly has been lost to anyone else. When one person dies, however, it can be exponentially more painful since it’s not…

Check out more of our video interviews on our YouTube channel.

Review: Royalty, Sensationalism and Journalism in ‘Scoop’

The British royal family hasn’t had an easy time over the past decade with the explosion in popularity of the Netflix series The Crown. Audiences eagerly watch and digest episodes, often taking its content as historical gospel rather than an occasionally (if not often) fictionalized version of the truth which, at the very least, imagines…

Review: Unmasking ‘The Antisocial Network: Memes to Mayhem’

Anyone can say anything from behind a computer screen and isn’t likely to immediately, if ever, experience consequences for their words. In most cases, harassment and threats don’t lead to anything in the real world, but when they do, it highlights the fragility of a system that’s been created with the potential for enormous destruction…
