About eighteen months ago, Xavier Dolan's acclaimed first feature, "I Killed My Mother," seemed like it was on its way to a high-profile U.S. release. Now, the fate of the film remains in doubt even as Sundance Selects & IFC Films prepare to release Dolan's follow-up feature, "Heartbeats." Insiders had tipped Dolan's award-winning '09 Cannes entry, "J'ai Tue Ma Mere" (I Killed My Mother) for an August release, but that date came and went as "Heartbeats" headed into the fall festival circuit.

At first, I didn't really want to see "Hell and Back Again." Is it yet another war story, I wondered. The film sounded like a retread of last year's Sundance hit, "Restrepo." But, without pointing out any differences between this and other recent war docs, a few folks close to the movie prevailed and encouraged me to take a look at it. So, I sat down for a Temple Theater screening at Sundance, surprisingly surrounded by a number of empty seats. I'm so glad I experienced it last week at the festival.
