Tribeca Film Review: ‘Madly’

24 April 2016 9:25 AM, PDT | Variety - Film News | See recent Variety - Film News news »

With “Madly,” the international cool set comes together to make an omnibus film about passionate love, spanning place and sexuality, but not the limitations of the form. Like most compilation projects, the effort yields an uneven anthology with little thematic glue holding it together, although for the most part, the six shorts could stand alone and overall quality is high. Tones range from dramatic (Anurag Kashyap, Sebastián Silva) to moody (Mia Wasikowska, Gael García Bernal, Natasha Khan) to silly (Sion Sono), most made in English, presumably to boost viewer numbers. Even so, “Madly” will see traction largely through streaming platforms — which should suit Viacom just fine.

In terms of story, Kashyap’s “Clean Shaven” is the most interesting and the most subversive, addressing traditional marriage constructs, inter-generational friendship and the male-female divide in a refreshingly frank manner. Archana (Radhika Apte) is a housewife and mother, unquestioning in the inequitable power »
