Sundance Review: The Winning Season


They might as well call the 2009 Sundance Film Festival the year of Sam Rockwell. With the premiere of The Winning Season, from director James C. Strouse (Grace is Gone), Rockwell has solidified his position as one of the clear winners of this year’s fest.

Sundance Review: Brief Interviews with Hideous Men


One of the things Sundance is known for is its ability to discover and launch new voices in the world of film. After screening his directorial debut, I can say with conviction that John Krasinski is going to be one of those new and unique voices.

Sundance Reviews: The Killing Room, Unmade Beds and Big Fan


In an effort to keep pace with all of the movies that I am seeing here at the 2009 Sundance Film Festival, I will sometimes resort to capsule reviews. Here are three examples…

Sundance Review: I Love You Phillip Morris


Telling the ridiculous, but true story of a man’s journey from married Texas cop to flamboyantly gay prison escape artist wouldn’t be an easy one. But as it turns out, the two man writer/director team behind I Love You Phillip Morris has pulled it off in a way that would make proud the brothers Farrelly and Coen.

Sundance Review: ‘Mystery Team’ is Clever, Fresh and Beautifully Raunchy


One of my favorite things about attending Sundance is the opportunity to meet and see filmmakers who are genuinely excited to bring their film to the public. Among this year’s entries is Mystery Team, a dark and clever comedy from the Derrick Comedy group, a troupe of comics on the verge of a major breakout.

Sundance Review: ‘500 Days of Summer’ Steals the Show


Since our arrival in the snowy mountains of Utah I, along with many other temporary transplants from around the world, have been puzzled about one thing: the weather. It has been uncharacteristically warm and sunny in Park City, almost to the point of robbing us of that frigidity that makes it feel like Sundance. No one has been able to explain it, not even the weatherman. At least, not until now.

Sundance Review: ‘Humpday’ is Awkward, Uncomfortable and Absolutely Hysterical


If there is one thing that we can take away from director Lynn Shelton’s awkward sex comedy Humpday, it is that there is nothing more uncomfortable to watch yet strikingly hilarious than two straight men who set out to have sex on camera.

Sundance Review: ‘Toe to Toe’ Shoots and Misses Wide


In general, I have a rule about walking out of movies. I just don’t do it. And while writer/director Emily Abt’s melodramatic soap opera Toe to Toe didn’t have me reaching for acid to pour on my face, it will go down as the first film of Sundance 2009 that had me eying both my watch and the exit door.
