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

Exclusive Sundance Interview: The Runaways Director Floria Sigismondi
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

Sundance Interview: Joan Jett
Just a few hours before The Runaways premiered on Sunday, Jett talked to me and a few other journalists about how she decided to throw her support behind the film, the similarities between her and Stewart

Sundance Review: The Extra Man
The third film from American Splendor directors Shari Springer Berman and Robert Pulcini is so interested in its own oddball delights that is veers very, very close to disaster

Exclusive Sundance Interview: Taika Waititi And James Rolleston
Taika Waititi's Boy hasn't been one of those Sundance movies that ignites an instant bidding war, but it's been a well-liked favorite among those I know who have seen the tender and hilarious coming-of-age story

Sundance Review: 12th And Delaware
Anyone particularly invested in the debate can see 12th and Delaware as a concise explanation of what the enemy has in store. The rest of us can enjoy a small-scale human drama that says so much in microcosm about our country as a whole

Sundance Review: The Killer Inside Me
Despite Affleck's efforts in the central role, Lou is a completely unbearable figure, snide and rude in public and unspeakably, horribly violent at home. The film's violence is what's got everyone talking

Sundance Review: Exit Through The Gift Shop
Exit Through the Gift Shop works very, very well as a document of the street art scene, with footage from installations by dozens of artists and interviews with many of them, and both the presence of an enthusiastic fan

Exclusive Sundance Interview: Anthony Mackie
Though Anthony Mackie isn't actually present at this year's Sundance Film Festival, the star of one of the latest indie success stories in Hollywood-- that would be guaranteed Oscar nominee The Hurt Locker-- is part of the festivities anyway

Sundance Hit Buried Picked Up By Lionsgate
I'd been hearing rumors that Buried, the Ryan-Reynolds-in-a-box thriller that debuted last night, had ignited the first bidding war of Sundance, and now a buyer has emerged

Sundance Review: Tucker & Dale Vs. Evil
Tucker and Dale may turn out to be one of those Sundance delights that completely fades once everyone has come down from the mountain, but really, that's OK-- my audience and I had enough fun

Sundance Review: Cyrus
Cyrus is stellar and hilarious and by far one of the best things to come out of the festival so far-- and lucky for you, Fox Searchlight made it, so it'll be arriving in theaters Little Miss Sunshine-style before you know it

Sundance Review: Buried
Buried: in which Ryan Reynolds is buried underground in a coffin with a cell phone, a lighter and some glow sticks and spends 90 minutes trying to fight his way out. You're pretty much in or out with the premise alone

Sundance Review: The Company Men
Basically a story about what happens in Up in the Air after Ryan Bingham leaves the office, it's an incredibly timely and occasionally poignant story that still manages to sell itself short

Sundance Review: Seven Days
You might be told by someone else that Seven Days is torture porn, so let me set the record straight from the beginning. Seven Days is only torture porn if porn leaves you feeling exhausted and numb

Sundance Review: Catfish
As it turns out I gave myself one of those legendary Sundance experiences, walking into a movie knowing nothing about it, and leaving smitten and transformed. A story specifically about our Internet age and the relationships that crop up

Sundance Review: Nowhere Boy
As a document of a legend in making, Nowhere Boy is practically peerless, reaching far beyond the typical musical discoveries to say something new about the man-- particularly remarkable given that the man in question is John Lennon

Sundance Review: I Am Love
In its story and themes I Am Love may not be much more than the traditional melodrama, but its effect is much greater, all those colors and that music and that mesmerizing Tilda Swinton creating an emotional wallop-- even if you can't quite figure out what it is you're feeling

First Sundance Sale Is Waiting For Superman
The doc explores the troubled system through stories of a handful of kids struggling with institutions that should be helping them. Hope comes in the form of reformers initiating new methods, like charter schools, to reshape the future
