2023 Tribeca Fest Film Review: ROLLING ALONG – Part 1

ROLLING ALONG resonates like an enigmatic, bittersweet, raconteuring memoir which also provided a compelling dish of Americana rarely seen on the Big Screen.
Bradley’s talking about intimately personal and professional moments and periods of his life – woven into a nonfiction film narrative – is arresting, especially because he is alluding to much bigger matters. It should be seen, and seen more than once. Serious filmgoers, cinephiles, aficionados and film buffs know good and really good films have to be seen more than once since it’s rare for viewers to understand all there is to a movie. – Review by Gregg W.

Film Review of A COW IN THE SKY: One of the Most Important of the 2023 Tribeca Fest Selections

A COW IN THE SKY has been regarded as one of the important films at the 2023 Tribeca Fest in light of the turbulent currents in these times of rising racial intolerance with its concomitant xenophobic insanity. It tells a true story about a young Ethiopian immigrant coming to terms living with growing up in America and that means coming to terms with the realpolitik of the American Dream in the aftermath of his father’s heinous murder by white supremacists. – Review by Gregg W.

After Screening Party for BLACK MARKS, Tribeca Fest 2023

2023 Tribeca Festival Special Event Screening first episode of BLACK MARK, sizzling documentary series about 14 year NBA veteran and current media personality, Matt Barnes.

Review in the works.

Reviewed is done from the point of view of a Cornell University Big Red Basketball Hall of Famer (who believes he has a wicked sense of humor) who almost made it through rookie camp of the old NBA Baltimore Bullets; got dis-invited from rookie camp of the Minnesota Pipers ABA team; struggled in what was once the Eastern Basketball League NBA minor league … played one season for the Sporting Club of Portugal basketball team and learned after a !@#$ season as an assistant CU basketball coach … that the Universe was possibly telling me that it was time to say goodbye to basketball and to seek and find another passion in journalism.
