    Sundance Review | A Cult and A Time Traveler in NEXT Entry "The Sound of My Voice"

    Notwithstanding a plot that might involve time travel and definitely involves quasi-religious indoctrination, Zal Batmanglij's directorial debut "Sound of My Voice" essentially revolves around the struggle to understand the inexplicable.

    Sundance Review | A Familiar Sundance Romance in "Like Crazy"

    Drake Doremus is a filmmaker born to play the Sundance game. Last year, Doremus brought his sophomore feature "Douchebag" to the festival.

    First-time director Mike Cahill's "Another Earth" suggests Andrei Tarkovsky's "Solaris" by way of Aaron Katz.

    Sundance Review | Nichols and Shannon Create American Epic With "Take Shelter"

    Part family drama, part psychological thriller, "Take Shelter" manages to succeed as an otherworldly blend of "Field of Dreams" and Noah's Ark.

    Sundance Review | Paul Rudd Outshines Mediocrity in "My Idiot Brother"

    Hiding behind a shaggy beard and a stoner grin, Paul Rudd plays an amusingly oblivious shrub in "My Idiot Brother," but the movie can't keep up with his comic momentum.

    Sundance Review | Todd Rohal Takes a Goofy Priest to the Woods in "The Catechism Cataclysm"

    "The Catechism Cataclysm" marks the sophomore feature of writer-director Todd Rohal, whose peculiar ensemble piece "The Guatemalan Handshake" made the festival rounds in 2006. Whereas "Guatemalan" took a wide view of Americana through Rohal's cast of offbeat characters, "Catechism" plays like a sing...
