    Sundance Review: 'Celeste And Jesse Forever' A Charming Tale Of Romance & Heartbreak In The Vein Of 'When Harry Met Sally'

    If "(500) Days of Summer" is bound to be considered this generation’s "Annie Hall" (not its equal, mind you, but its closest equivalent), then it’s fair to claim that "Celeste And Jesse Forever" follows in the footsteps of "When Harry Met Sally," p...

    Sundance Review: 'Liberal Arts' Is A Mostly Charming Sophomore Effort From Writer/Director Josh Radnor

    Every young filmmaker dreams of getting their debut into Sundance and hopes that if it goes over well, they can turn that buzz into a distribution deal with a successful theatrical run not far behind. But getting in to the festival is only the beginning. Even if your film is a hit, Sundance audience...

    Sundance Review: 'The Imposter' A Remarkable & Entertaining Tale About The Illusion Of Truth

    It isn’t often that audiences will feel inclined to believe the word of a proven liar over a family who suffered as a result of his dishonesty, but “The Imposter” achieves that unusual feat. A documentary about a family stricken with tragedy that unwittingly takes in a con artist, ...

    Sundance Review: 'Safety Not Guaranteed' A Grounded, Genuine, Oddly Effective Charmer

    Although at this point there are way too many stories about quirky man-children and the women who love them, “Safety Not Guaranteed” is an oddly effective little charmer. A film that harkens back to the magical-realism adventures of the 1980s rather than the twee dollhouse making of the ...

    Sundance Review: 'Bachelorette' Is The Movie For Anyone Who Wished 'Bridesmaids' Was More Like 'The Hangover'

    Produced by Will Ferrell and Adam McKay's Gary Sanchez Productions, "Bachelorette" is the movie for all those people that wished "Bridesmaids" was more like "The Hangover." Three bridesmaids embark on a non-stop parade of debauchery fueled by coke, booze, and pills ...

    SUNDANCE REVIEW: Julie Delpy's "2 Days in New York" is Fun But Awfully Familar

    Julie Delpy's genial 2007 directorial effort "2 Days in Paris" worked well enough; it delivered a small, uncomplicated romantic comedy and never left that safety zone. Her next film, "2 Days in New York," repeats the same formula so specifically that it's practically the ...

    SUNDANCE REVIEW: 'Black Rock' Offers a Clever Take on the Girls-in-Danger Story

    Survival stories often occupy an ambiguous space in the horror genre, lingering somewhere between misogyny and female empowerment. The "final girl" trope pits a lone, frequently virginal woman against some ungodly threat, both glamorizing her struggle and imbuing it with dread. While gener...

    Sundance 2012 Review - "Red Hook Summer" (An Attempt To Make Sense Of Spike Lee's Trip To Wonderland)

    I agonized over this for awhile, and actually almost decided not to even write anything about the film; but I eventually reached a compromise.
