A funny, perhaps Freudian slip occurred while I was putting together a list of my favorite and not so favorite films from Sundance 2014. I wrote the title "Love is Violence," an accidentally amalgam of two of the most memorable (and very different) movies from the festival, Ira Sachs' lovely and intimate multi-generational drama "Love is Strange" and Goran Olsson's "Concerning Violence," a found-footage stunner that focuses on the colonization of Africa and the process of decolonization in the 1960s and 1970s. 'Love is violence'--now that's a movie I'd like to see. At last count, I saw about 20 movies from Sundance 2014.

Is "The Green Prince" this year's "Searching for Sugar Man"?

"The Green Prince," which premiered at Sundance on Friday night, is poised to become this year's "Searching for Sugar Man." While the film's subject, about a Palestinian son of a Hamas leader who became a spy for Israeli's Shin Bet security service, sounds closer to another 2012 documentary hit "The Gatekeepers," the new movie is far more humanistic than its political logline suggests.
