Great Expectations

It’s the second week of the Tribeca Film Festival and I’m in for two screenings. First, Zero Motivation, an Israeli film billed as a “dark comedy” about a unit of young female solders who man, if you will, a “human resources” office at a desolate desert outpost. Complex relationships develop as they push papers and vie for top score on Minesweeper. Directed by Talya Lavie. This one had me at “hello.”

The second, Glass Chin, involves a down-and-out boxer who hopes to get back into the big-time by partnering with a corrupt restauranteur. Stars Corey Stoll, Kelly Lynch, and Billy Crudup and is directed by the very talented Noah Buschel.
