Nea (2024) Tribeca 2024

Directed by Emmy®-nominee Nelson G. Navarrete and Alex Ulises, and starring Julian Sanchez Jimenez NEA is one the most glorious discoveries of the year. A wild and crazy film that is so absolutely delightful that I kept mumbling that I want a similar feature made by these filmmakers and starring these actors. This is one of the best films of Tribeca and of 2024 as well.

The plot of the film follows a cartel connected taxi driver over the course of one night. As he tries to get people to the hospital, fix a busted AC and talk a cartel guy from beating his wife because its bad for business, he also gives us a running commentary of everything thats happening. It's absolutely compelling and delightful.  A mix of real and magical realism the the film hooks us from the first minute and makes us groan at the end when we realize that it's all over and there is no more.

This film is a masterpiece.

When I saw this film I had seen around 50 films playing Tribeca and this film jumped to the near the very top of the bunch.

I can not say enough enough about this film. It really is that good and it really will want you to see a feature film by this group of filmmakers.

I won't say more so I don't wreck the story for you.

Highly recommended
