Sundance Blog: Alcohol and High Altitude Don’t Mix

Thanks the cinematic gods for another day at the Sundance Film Festival. Yesterday was all kinds of fun, with plenty more screenings. I took in the fantastic documentary American Teen, the not so fantastic thriller Funny Games, the silly and stupid Adventures of Power and Quentin Tarantino Presents Hell Ride, which was actually a lot of fun.

As you may have noticed, the past 3 days have been all work and no play for me. Its been screening after screening, with me desperately trying to plow through reviews in between. And so far, I am very proud of the fact that I have all my reviews written (save for the Hell Ride review, which will be done soon.) So to celebrate I took in a few drinks last night with some friends from around the web. Myself, Peter, Scott Weinberg, Devin Faraci, Mark Bell, Erik Davis and Ryan Rotten all took in a few drinks following the Hell Ride screening. It was the first time that I have had a chance to sit back and enjoy myself — and it was lovely.

This morning though, I was certainly feeling the effects. Dizzy, woozy and stricken with a wicked headache I was able to rise from my slumber and head out and make it to my interview with Jonathan Levine, director of The Wackness. That is actually the theme for today, a few interviews and some more screenings later this evening. Aside from Levine, I will also be talking with the producer and writer of Where in the World is Osama Bin Laden? as well as Morgan Spurlock himself. I will have all of those ready later in the evening for your reading pleasure.

As far as screenings go, I will be taking in Baghead, Anvil!: The Story of Anvil (which people say is just like This is Spinal Tap) and Assassination of a High School President starring Mischa Barton. So you have that to look forward to…
