    PARK CITY '07 REVIEW | Romeo and Juliet, Only Nuttier: Dan Klores' "Crazy Love"

    The will-she or won't-she rehab antics of actress Lindsay Lohan pale in comparison to the New York tabloid tale of lying husband Burt Pugach and his beautiful girlfriend Linda Riss. Director Dan Klores, a prominent member of the Sundance community thanks to his films "The Boys of 2nd Street Park" and "Ring of Fire: The Emile Griffith Story," captures the pulpy spirit of their oddball, fifty-year love affair with his stand-up-and-cheer documentary "Crazy Love." The fact that their story made newspaper headlines for many years is clear in the first minutes of Klores' rollicking film, his finest effort yet. Despite the sadness, crimes and terri...

    PARK CITY '07 DAILY DISPATCH | Iraq Doc Stirs Talk at Sundance; "No End in Sight" Fuels Outrage

    As President Bush made his now infamous landing on a U.S. aircraft carrier declaring victory in Iraq with bravado, an onslaught of lawlessness and widespread looting raged in full view of the American military, decimating not only livelihoods, but the ancient country's cultural heritage. Even worse, the chaos exposed a political vacuum that opened in an Iraqi capital plunged into anarchy. Unlike most news networks operating in the United States 9 including the U.S. version of CNN and Fox News), international outlets such as BBC revealed a glaring difference between the "liberated" Iraq the Bush Administration propagated and the reality. That ...

    PARK CITY '07 REVIEW | Sound Machine: Irene Taylor Brodsky's "Hear and Now"

    The cochlear implant - already the star of another Sundance documentary, 2000's "Sound and Fury" - is the hook to "Hear and Now."

    Calling filmmaker Deborah Kampmeier's over-the-top Southern gothic "Hounddog" the "Showgirls" of Sundance is recognizing the much talked about adolescent drama as the great, unintentional cult classic in Sundance history. Bad festival movies are common but "Hounddog," with its loony characters, pile...
