A moving story of awakening Yossi speaks to the audience on a very intrinsic level, thanks to bare storytelling and a beautifully poignant performance from Ohad Knoller in his return to the award-winng role of Yossi , initiated in 2003 with Yossi & Jagger. Knoller should recieve a slew of awards for his resurrection of Yossi, despite the fact, […]

The perception many of us have about war photographers is that they are fearless, venturesome, sharp and resolute men and women driven by adrenaline and purpose. Shooting Robert King does nothing to promote that perception. Instead, the film strips all valor and idealism from the vocation as seen through the career of photojournalist Robert King. […]

TRIBECA 2012: Free Samples

| April 21, 2012 | 0 Comments

A super-concentrated example of the common desultory attitude residing in the hearts and minds of several many twentysomethings Free Samples tries to lend a voice to this generation’s brand of slackers, and it tries hard! A good cast does what it can, but with the labored humor and a plot to match, they cannot strengthen an otherwise brittle comedy. […]

A provocative parallel between two seemingly unrelated professions and a bare and audacious performance from celebrated French screen actress Isabelle Huppert are the only two elements of Special Treatment that keep us engaged or even attentive. The film, written and directed by Jeanne Labrune, keeps us drudging along a tedious exploration of potentially interesting characters […]

Amidst all the hopelessness and despair, the murkiness and affliction, the chemical imbalances and drug use, the repression and psychoses, a definitively distinguished cast, with an especially remarkable Ellen Barkin at the helm, shapes a family we can all recognize.
