"I saw this in the theater with a friend who (like me) has a very high tolerance for obscure,messy film.We both left the screening saying,'What the hell WAS that?' "- RV

Beauty vs Beast: Lesbian Love Song

Jason Adams fromMNPPhere -- at the Tribeca Film Fest last year I weirdly reviewed two movies involving Alessandro Nivola and Orthodox Judaism.The first one is calledTo Dustand Nivola (along with his wife actress Emily Mortimer) produced it -- it starsSon of Saul's Géza Röhrig and Matthew Broderick as an extremely odd couple grappling with the afterlife.Here is my review,and you can watch the trailerover here.To Dustis finally hitting some theaters this weekend,and I highly recommend seeking it out.I really dig it.

The other movieI reviewedat Tribeca 2018 was Sebastian Lelio'sDisobedience,which came out last year and which in a just world we'd be celebrating its several Oscar nominations just about now.Hey I did my part --Disobediencegot mentions in both end-of-year polls I have a say in,The Team Experience Awardshere on this site as well asthe Dorian Awardsfor the GALECA guild of LGBT critics.But being a great film is its own reward,andDisobediencewill be remembered for a very long time as such.Now let's face off its Rachels -- McAdams is Esti,the one who stayed,and Weisz is Ronit,the one who went away...

PREVIOUSLYLast week'sCan You Ever Forgive Mepollwas as close as two friends sweeping up cat turds could be,but Melissa McCarthy got the best of Richard E Grant in the end with 53% of the vote.Said/3rtful:

"Unprepared for how emotionally affected I would be by this movie.I think the casting of McCarthy and those initial cut trailers gave no clue of the emotional wallop this movie carries."

Tribeca 2018: To Dust

byJason Adams

Shmuel is a sinner.He keeps repeating that.This is a sin,this is a sin.His children are convinced he's possessed,and he kind of is.He haunts graveyards;he rows them into the middle of a lake and makes them cry.He stuffs a plastic bag over the head of a large pig and suffocates it in front of a community college science professor.Things are nuts!

Shmuel's wife has just died from cancer,see,and he's having troubles reconciling what that means.Not in the spiritual sense - Shmuel is a Hasidic man,and such things probably ought to concern him more than they do - but in a more practical sense...

Interview: Director and Star of 'Son of Saul' on Making Art in a Politically Correct World

Josehere.The evils of the Nazi regime have been documented in myriad ways,and in practically every medium possible.Film in particular,has created a subgenre that consists of harrowing stories about concentration camps,the diabolical genocide of the Jews,and other events that put all the human race under a shameful light.However,perhaps because of Hollywood's tendency to overpraise the human spirit,and its relentless need to "inspire",Holocaust films have become a "niche"meant to help actors and directors win awards.Holocaust films in a nutshell always go for the emotional and rarely,if ever,attempt to touch the intellectual.

Enter first time director László Nemes,who caught Cannes by surprise with his uniqueSon of Saul,which has just opened in US theaters,a film that dispenses of each and every cliché you've seen played in every other Holocaust movie.There are no string-filled overwrought scores,no movie stars losing weight,gaining accents or donning beards,and most surprisingly,there are no attempts at oversimplifying the Holocaust as anything other than a series of personal infernos lived in a collective reality.The inner hell in this case,is that of Auschwitz prisoner Saul (Géza Röhrig),a Sonderkommando member,who one day makes a gruesome discovery that drives him to make a decision that might have deadly results.
