FULL RESULTS: Sundance 2017 IndieWire Critics Poll

Rose Troche’s VR on the Pulse nightclub shooting was a perfect use of VR storytelling. Justin Chon’s “Gook” was a perfect example of outsider storytelling that Sundance has branded. Jem Cohen reminds me that visual language is the essence of cinematic storytelling. “The Nile Hilton Incident” could not be more relevant today. Systemic corruption.
