    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." But the two retirement-aged parents who live like teenagers, perpetually sneaking out the bedroom window for a late-night adventure, are actually the story. These kooky ...

    PARK CITY '07 REVIEW | The Showgirls of Sundance: Deborah Kampmeier's "Hounddog"

    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...

    PARK CITY '07 REVIEW | Woman on the Beach: "Never Forever" Tells Overripe Tale of Female Desire

    Gina Kim's competent romantic melodrama "Never Forever" stars new indie-queen Vera Farmiga as Sophie, a New York waif married to Andrew, a well-to-do Korean-American businessman (David McInnis). Their mixed-race marriage doesn't particularly please Andrew's devoutly Christian family, especially sinc...

    PARK CITY '07 REVIEW | Beautiful Squalor: Steve Berra's "The Good Life"

    The standout surprise on the slow burning melodrama "The Good Life" never appears on-screen. It has more to do with its origins. Writer/director Steve Berra is a top skateboarder turned self-taught filmmaker but "The Good Life," his solid debut effort, has little to do with skateboarding and takes p...

    PARK CITY '07 REVIEW | Heartache Free of Language Barriers: Christopher Zalla's "Padre Nuestro"

    Good ambiguity is a film that enthralls audiences and yet, manages to give a variety of pleasures. That's "Padre Nuestro," a wonderful Spanish-language debut from writer/director Christopher Zalla and arguably the best dramatic feature I've watched so far at the festival. My initial response would b...

    PARK CITY '07 DAILY DISPATCH | 'Festival Fever' Intensifies, Cinetic Bash Yields Deals for "La Misma

    The annual Cinetic Media party, the hottest industry ticket at Sundance, maintained its dominance among festival soirees Monday night luring buyers, sellers and filmmakers to Zoom on Main St. No RSVPs were accepted for the party this year, instead a simple email was sent to guests who were told their name would be at the door. Those who skipped competing agency parties and nighttime fest screenings were treated to a front row seat as company head John Sloss brokered a pair of deals in Zoom's upstairs dining room. The Weinstein Company head Harvey Weinstein arrived a half-hour early to talk business, and when guests were allowed in at 9 p.m.,...
