Normally around this time of year, Neil would have written 5 separate posts about the journey from Reject HQ to the airport to board a plane to Sundance, but sadly this will be the first year Neil hasn’t gone to the festival in 5 years.
He has big shoes to fill. For those who kept up with our canvassing of Sundance in years past, you’ll know that Neil was a machine with the strange ability to see 7 or 8 movies a day, crank out reviews for them all and use bad Chinese food for fuel. Luckily we’ve got it covered.
In taking on those shoes, we’ve got veteran reviewer (and Sundance soldier) Robert Levin, our newest writer, Benji Carver, and special guest blogger Marco Cerritos heading out into the snow while I bravely sit in the warmth of the Arizona sunshine. I hear it’s cold out there. Good luck, guys.
They’ll be delivering everything your indie heart desires – scoping out the releases, deciphering which ones will make it to theaters near you, and not surviving off bad Chinese food (because that place closed down).
Stay tuned. And keep warm.
