    Among the first deals to emerge from this year's Sundance Film Festival, Magnolia Pictures will likely make a pact for Dan Klores' doc "Crazy Love," which had its world premiere in Park City on Friday evening. Though the film was rumored to have been screened for some buyers prior to the festival's opening, in addition to a scheduled press and industry screening earlier on Friday, a few distributors sent reps to the official public showing last night and the screening was met with strong applause. Magnolia is the company most likely to score the "Crazy Love" deal, on the heels of what has been a robust start for documentaries at this year's S...

    PARK CITY '07 REVIEW | Lady Jaws: Mitchell Lichtenstein's "Teeth"

    During the course of its premiere Sundance screening, in countless psychiatrist offices everywhere, there are people describing their fear of vaginal dentata, the belief that women have sharp teeth lining their vagina. I can't say with certainty if anyone with that fear was sitting in the audience watching actor-turned-filmmaker Mitchell Lichtenstein's "Teeth," a silly, splatter movie about a teen girl with G Spot canines.
