Sundance Video Blog #7: The Guerilla Disney Movie Escape From Tomorrow And Harrowing Fruitvale
The Sundance Film Festival is finally coming to a close, with the awards ceremony scheduled for tonight and the closing night film, Ashton Kutcher's jOBS, premiering last night. It's finally come time to start taking stock of what we've seen over these breathless 10 days, which we did last night in the Eccles Theater-- the festival's biggest venue-- while waiting for the start of jOBS.
The first faces you'll see in this video aren't, in fact, me or my intrepid colleague Matt Patches, but some fellow online writer friends Germain Lussier of Slashfilm and Alex Billington and Bradford Oman of First Showing. Then Patches and I jump in to discuss two of the most interesting and provocative movies we've seen at the film festival-- the surrealist Escape From Tomorrow, shot guerrilla style inside Disney theme parks, and the fact-based drama Fruitvale, about the murder of a young man at a San Francisco train station in 2009. Take a look at it all below.
As always, for our full lineup of Sundance coverage-- which, believe it or not, isn't even over yet!-- you can click here-- all of our previous video blogs are there too, and they are fun to watch if I say so myself. We'll have a few more updates coming from Sundance in the next day or two, along with some of the interviews that I've been conducting, so keep coming back for even more festival madness!
