The 10 Most Criminally Underseen Movies of 2012

Safety Not Guaranteed FilmDistrict

This has been a pretty darn good year for movies. Awesome blockbusters ("The Avengers," "The Dark Knight Rises"), hilarious comedies ("Ted," "21 Jump Street") cool indies ("Moonrise Kingdom," "The Master") and hot dramas ("Lincoln," "Argo") have battled for attention in the media and at the box office. It's really been an embarrassment of riches.

But you know what else is an embarrassment? The fact that because of the crowded box office slate, some of the best movies of the year were hardly seen at all. Get More »

Sex and Love Get Complicated in 'Your Sister's Sister'

Your Sister's Sister Benjamin Kasulke

We’ve seen a lot of indie movies at the cineplex lately with the similar themes: relationships put in uncomfortable situations we hope never to face. Awkward breakups, unwanted pregnancies, villainous ex-lovers and anything that could ruin a potentially wonderful relationship are all on the table.

Similarly, Lynn Shelton’s latest effort, “Your Sister’s Sister,” starring Mark Duplass, Emily Blunt, and Rosemary DeWitt, is a moving, serendipitous love story about people aching for love which, through stubborn compromises and foolish decisions, they just might find. The film is an admirable examination of making what could be considered a bad decision, and the string of undesired events that come from it. Cause and effect. Get More »

Our 10 Favorite Movies from the 2012 Tribeca Film Festival

Your Sister's Sister
Benjamin Kasulke

The 2012 Tribeca Film Festival opened and closed with two glossy, star-studded premieres, as the raunchy rom-com "The Five-Year Engagement" and the surefire summer blockbuster "The Avengers" bookended the event.

But it was the far more modestly budgeted films in between that made the 11th annual Tribeca fest a success, with audiences and critics alike discovering gems you probably won't see plastered on the side of a bus anytime soon.

Our 10 favorites ranged from music documentaries ("Searching for Sugar Man") to quote-unquote mumblecore ("Your Sister's Sister"), but they share one common thread, at least in our eyes: They deserve a much wider audience. Maybe even on bus ads. – By Jason Guerrasio, Kevin Polowy, Nigel Smith and Brooke Tarnoff Get More »

2 Days in New York
Magnolia Pictures

It's Year 11 for the Tribeca Film Festival, and it looks like the fest created by Robert De Niro is hitting its stride.

The 11-day event, which takes place April 18-29, has always been known for its flashy red- carpet premieres (this year's fest is bookended with the comedy "The Five-Year Engagement" and Marvel's latest “The Avengers”) and fun family fare (free Drive In screenings of "Jaws" and "The Goonies"). Tribeca is also branching out into the online world: For its second year, the festival will screen a handful of titles from this year's Tribeca Online Film Festival as well as stream some of its panels.

But if you like to watch your movies the old-fashioned way (in the theater), here are 15 titles from this year's fest that we think you should check out. Get More »
