Devika Girish on Her First Tribeca Film Festival Experience

Tribeca Film Festival Review: Assia Boundaoui’s ‘The Feeling of Being Watched’

“Unlike many documentaries of its ilk, ‘The Feeling of Being Watched’ is not weighed down by doomsaying or sensationalism; instead, the picture it paints of community organization is genuinely hopeful.”

Tribeca Film Festival Review: Jason Reitman’s ‘Tully’

“There’s a calculated precision to both Reitman’s direction and Cody’s screenplay. The film is perfectly paced and cut, and moves with a rat-a-tat rhythm; the writing is sharp and specific, with a zinger in every other line.”

Tribeca Film Festival Review: Israel Cárdenas and Laura Amelia Guzmán’s ‘Sambá’

“‘Sambá’ succeeds most when it draws inspiration from its setting and hooks the audiences with hard questions about crime and responsibility.”

Tribeca Film Festival Review: Tim Golden and Ross McDonnell’s ‘ELIÁN’

“It’s a miracle that Golden and McDonnell were able to create such a coherent document out of what appears to be bureaucratic chaos.”

Tribeca Film Festival Review: Guillaume Canet’s ‘Rock’n Roll’

“Canet’s performance seems to come from a place of real insecurity, and the resulting film plays out like an externalized catharsis.”

Tribeca Film Festival Reviews: Men with Guns – ‘Sweet Virginia’ and ‘Hondros’

“What ‘Sweet Virginia’ and ‘Hondros’ have in common is the notion that men with guns aren’t as brave or bloodthirsty as they seem.”

Tribeca Film Festival Review: Drew Xanthopoulos’ ‘The Sensitives’

“‘The Sensitives’ is a gentle and affecting window into the isolated prison cell that becomes a sensitive person’s life.”

Tribeca Film Festival Review: Zefrey Throwell and Josephine Decker’s ‘Flames’

“At times, Zefrey and Josephine seem more in love with their own clever filmmaking than they are with each other.”

Technological Tease: Virtual Reality

“I foresee that VR will eventually become a key asset of filmmaking, putting itself right alongside sound, color, digital and CGI as an essential staple of the industry.”

Tribeca Viewpoints: José Villalobos’ ‘The Charro of Toluquilla’

“‘The Charro of Toluquilla’ is definitely worth seeing, as Jaime is a character that you will not soon forget.”
