Hollywood 2011 really has their release schedule down to a science thus far, spreading the love around for each tasty, tasty demographic. Those all-important 18-24 males? Why we have some aliens, musclebound dudes and subsequent explosions for you with "Battle: Los Angeles." That delicious teenage disposable income? How about Amanda Seyfried and an RPatz doppelganger sporting anachronistic hair product in a fairy tale setting? "Red Riding Hood" steamy enough for ya? And of course, the animated vehicle that sucks in not only the kids' tickets but mom, dad and nannies as well, in "Mars Needs Moms." Fun for everyone! But, but don't fret my pet! There is some serious quality art cinema out there, like a new flick from a stone-cold, legendary-filmmaker, you have to see this lest you be ridiculed by your cool film friends. So go seek it out! Take a road trip!

This is a republish of our review that ran last year during the Tribeca Film Festival.Shot beautifully, right in the middle of the Brooklyn neighborhood that houses The Playlist headquarters and even prominently featuring our local watering hole and one of its well-liked jovial bartenders, "Monogamy"nevertheless remains a fairly unconvincing portrait of a romantic implosion, and a picture that becomes unbearably precious and self-important once the amiable set up is dispensed with.
