Casino Jack comes out in theaters later this year, so I'll run our full 20-minute conversation then; in the meantime watch a 5-minute excerpt in which Gibney explains why Abramoff is still relevant and his role as a different kind of criminal

Blue Valentine Picked Up For Release By Weinstein Co.
Apparently the Weinsteins believe they can launch an Oscar campaign for Michelle Williams' performance, which is a dead-on strategy-- she's amazing in the film, overcoming a weakly drawn character

Drunk History Takes Top Sundance Shorts Prize
Short films don't really get a lot of buzz at Sundance-- there's a lot of other stuff to drown it out, of course-- but the one short I've consistently been hearing about is "Drunk History," in which Will Ferrell and Don Cheadle re-enact history after a few bottles of wine

Sundance Review: Mother And Child
As the movie pulled hard on the reins to jerk the tears out of its audience in the last half hour, I was definitely one of few people with dry eyes in the house, but I can't have been the only one who felt thoroughly manipulated

Sundance's Hesher Picked Up For Distribution By Newmarket
The lucky buyer is Newmarket FIlms, a small indie company that usually distributes movies you don't hear about, but also has Passion of the Christ and Donnie Darko to its name

Exclusive Sundance Interview: Night Catches Us Director Tanya Hamilton
I talked to Hamilton earlier this week at Main Street art gallery, and asked her about the way she fused the historical record with the characters she had created, and what inspired her about the Black Panthers story to begin with

Sundance Review: The Kids Are All Right
Lisa Cholodenko's film is sure-handed, warm and funny, a crowdpleaser that isn't too pleased with itself, despite the presence of organic farmers and smart teenagers and all the other tropes of smug liberal filmmaking that might normally make me cringe

Sundance Review: Blue Valentine
The complex, arty version of this film knows that there are no simple answers, that people donít have easily understandable motivations, especially in matters of love. But in a film that goes to great lengths to bring us close

Exclusive Sundance Interview: Cyrus Co-Director Mark Duplass
Given how many of his films have premiered here, and what a crucial role he's playing in low-budget independent cinema right now, Mark Duplass may be more of a human personification of Sundance than Harvey Weinstein

Sundance Review: It's A Wonderful Afterlife
Don't ask how four ghosts who Roopi can't see are helping with the matchmaking, and definitely don't ask about the potential heartbreaking ramifications of a mother planning her own death. This is a movie that's too committed to being silly to stop for breath

Sundance Review: Twelve
When the movie ends without a single one of the annoying characters getting sliced in half with a blade, it's almost unbelievably disappointing. We've earned the right to see these characters dispatched with in the most violent way possible

Sundance Review: Animal Collective's ODDSAC
I'm not really sure if the Animal Collective and Danny Perez collaboration ODDSAC is genius or insane or some combination of the two, or the if the low-fi hallucinatory visuals here represent some great leap for music movies-- I'll leave that to Pitchfork to sort out

When she started work on The Runaways, Floria Sigismondi was just making a small biopic about a 70s punk girl group, early feminist icons in the male-dominated world of rock and roll. Then the day that they signed a lead actress
