Movie Info

TYREL follows Tyler, who joins his friend on a trip to the Catskills for a weekend birthday party with several people he doesn't know. As soon as they get there, it's clear that (1) he's the only black guy, and (2) it's going to be a weekend of heavy drinking. Although Tyler is welcomed, he can't help but feel uneasy in "Whitesville." The combination of all the testosterone and alcohol starts to get out of hand, and Tyler's precarious situation starts to feel like a nightmare.

Critic Reviews for Tyrel

All Critics (17) | Top Critics (6)

It's a stingingly intimate portrait of a fly-in-the-buttermilk scenario laced with testosterone and too much Irish coffee.

Tyrel observes how wounds can fester, doing damage long after unaffected parties would have assumed everything was fine.

January 30, 2018 | Full Review…

Like paranoid Tyler himself, we go to that worst-case scenario and Silva has a blast emphasizing every bit of microaggressive whiteness on display, from their constant flow of spiked Irish coffees to a hit parade of whiny R.E.M. songs.

January 24, 2018 | Rating: 4/5 | Full Review…

A film with a very off-the-cuff energy designed to make people uneasy but that doesn't amount to nearly enough in the end.

Tyrel is one of Silva's] less-adventurous offerings, but it still fits neatly into a career steeped in innovative explorations of human behavior

Top Critic

Not an especially pointed commentary about race or anything else, this lively, unpleasant seriocomedy nonetheless does very well at capturing the queasiness of being alone and uneasy at a party you immediately know you won't fit into.
