Casey Wilson And June Diane Raphael Take Control And Go A Little Crazy With Ass Backwards

In the very first shot of Ass Backwards we meet our lead characters… well, actually, we meet their butts. True to the title, and the movie's spirit of weird women behaving very badly, Ass Backwards opens with its heroines Kate and Chloe squatting to pee outdoors, and it only gets wilder and sillier from there

How You Can See The Sundance Film Festival's Biggest Films

When the Sundance Film Festival is happening, it can be nearly impossible to keep track of the films worth looking out for-- even when you're actually there. But now that the dust has settled and Park City has gone back to being a pleasant mountain town, we can finally get a look at the films that made the biggest impact at the festival this year

Find Out Why Fruitvale Was Sundance's Biggest Film And A Future Awards Contender

I was shaking by the end of Fruitvale, holding back tears and alive with anger, the knowledge that it wasn't just a trigger-happy and angry cop that killed Oscar Grant, but an entire culture in which young black men are distrusted and abused and considered expendable

True Story Drama Fruitvale Tops Sundance Awards With Grand Jury And Audience Prizes

The last film to win both the Audience Award and U.S. Dramatic Grand Jury Prize at the Sundance Film Festival was Precious in 2009, almost exactly a year before it went on to become a Best Picture Oscar nominee. Now history may be ready to repeat itself, with the intense drama Fruitvale

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

Sundance Video Blog #6: Lake Bell's Directorial Debut, Michael Cera Back In Chile, And More

The action at Sundance is starting to slow down, with most of the big films already premiered and the town clearing out, most journalists eager to get home (or stuck in an iced-over Salt Lake City airport on their way there). But Matt Patches and I remain ever stalwart, ever true, sticking around at this high altitude to bring you the latest

The Way Way Back Is Sundance's Most Expensive Acquisition, But Was It Worth It?

This year, apparently, there's a movie so similar to Little Miss Sunshine that the same studio, Fox Searchlight, was inspired to pull out their biggest checkbook. Jaws dropped here in Park City when the news broke that Searchlight had paid $10 million to acquire The Way Way Back, the light comedy that shares so much DNA with Little Miss Sunshine it's even got Steve Carell and Toni Colette in the cast.

Sundance Review: The East Is The Thoughtful Spy Thriller Hollywood Has Forgotten How To Make

Two years ago Brit Marling and Zal Batmanglij took a late premiere slot for their film Sound of My Voice and seemingly took over the Sundance Film Festival overnight. Their low-budget, tightly scripted and mysterious movie was the rare Sundance film that seemed to immediately demand a sequel

Upstream Color Review: A Sundance Cult Favorite Is Back, And He's Glad You're Confused

As odd as the story can get, it's not at all hard to follow-- replace the pig-and-worm-based conspiracy with some other trauma, like surviving a bus crash, and it's essentially just a story about recovery, albeit one that takes every opportunity to throw the audience off with an unsettling closeup or narrative tangent

Movie News
Sundance Video Blog #4: Paul Rudd In Prince Avalanche, Joseph Gordon-Levitt's Directorial Debut, And More

When you're faced with a schedule as massive as varied as Sundance's, sometimes you have to pick which film to see based simply on the name. Whether that's the return of a director you admire or simply a movie star you hope to see in person at the premiere-- hey, that's your call

Sundance Review: Before Midnight Is Perfect

In Before Midnight, Richard Linklater once again teams up with Ethan Hawke and Julie Delpy to give us a slice in the lives of Celine and Jesse, who we meet 9 years after the events of Before Sunset, as they are in Greece and… Wait, you don't actually want to know what happens next, right?

James Franco Brings Graphic Gay Sex To Sundance With Interior Leather Bar

In a time of publicist-controlled images and fake reality TV personalities, it's good to know there's at least one star out there who wants to use his power just to fuck with your head. At this year's Sundance, that involved premiering two different movies in one might, both of them about kinky sex, and at least one of them featuring actual, unsimulated sex

Sundance Video Blog #3: Spectacular Now, Mud, Kill Your Darlings And Terror In The Eccles Tent

There's a myth about Sundance glamour, mostly based on red carpet photos of celebrities in fur hats, or maybe press releases about how much fun everyone had sipping complimentary cocktails at a party. And yes, there's plenty of that happening around here right now, but I'm seeing almost none of it

Sundance Review: Joseph Gordon-Levitt Gets Detestable In Don Jon's Addiction

From the very beginning, with its rhythmic montages of Jon's daily routine frenetically intercut with porn clips, Don Jon's Addiction is just as flashy and fake as the porn videos that Jon loves. That puts the entire film troublingly close to its slimy main character, pumping out the same stylized visuals even as Jon is supposedly out there learning that reality can be better

The Spectacular Now: The Rare Sundance Coming-Of-Age Story That Feels Like It Matters

The most common of all Sundance Film Festival tropes, or at least the most exhausted, is the quirky romance between two attractive, young, mildly famous white people. It's easy to read that kind of plot description in the guide and roll your eyes, but then once in a while comes a movie like The Spectacular Now

Sundance Video Blog #2: Crystal Fairy Is The Michael Cera Doing Drugs In Chile Movie, And It's Great

Crystal Fairy-- real name unknown-- is first seen jumping into the middle of a dance circle, a big mess of frizzy brown hair and too many bangles, moving way too slowly for the music that's playing. She's the kind of girl who's constantly offering to massage your aura, or insisting that everyone do a meditation before dinner

Peering Into The Sundance Crystal Ball, And Trying To Ignore The Rising Panic

I'm completely convinced I've managed to overlook the one film anybody will be talking about 10 days from now. This is how it feels at the start of every Sundance, which remains such a unique festival because of its continued commitment to choosing movies that nobody sees coming

Sundance Video Blog #1: Welcome To Park City!

I've made it to Utah and I don't yet have the flu, which I count as two major victories even before the Sundance Film Festival kicks off. The first screenings don't begin until tonight, when films like Gael Garcia Bernal's Who Is Dayani Cristal? and Michael Cera's Chilean experiment Crystal Fairy hold their premieres

Sundance 2013 Premieres Include Movies From Richard Linklater, Joseph Gordon-Levitt And More

The Sundance Film Festival is primarily known for giving young, unknown filmmakers a chance to have their work be seen, but it’s not just film school students who are making movies outside of the studio system. There are many directors and actors who like to work without the restrictions of a major company and focus on their craft instead of just making blockbusters.

Every year the Park City, Utah event kicks things off, and this January will be no different. Earlier this week the titles set to face off in both the narrative and documentary competitions were announced, but today we have even more films for you - namely the Spotlight and Midnight lineups
