    Sundance 2012 Review - "2 Days In New York" (Familiar But Still Engaging)

    This will be a quick and painless one; I arrived back in NYC (from Sundance) this morning and I've been caught up in a whirlwind of work to do; I'm also having trouble keeping my eyes open after that marathon 5-day business trip to the festival.

    Sundance Review: 'Shadow Dancer' A Crackling Conspiracy Thriller

    If “Tinker, Tailor, Soldier, Spy” represented the height of Cold War paranoia within the British intelligence community, then “Shadow Dancer” is the next chapter, replacing the ominous Russian government with a more localized threat: The Troubles in Northern Ireland.

    Sundance Review: The South Will Rise, But Not Like You Expected, In The Pagan, Powerful 'Beasts Of The Southern Wild'

    Written and directed by Benh Zeitlin, whose short, "Glory at Sea," was shot through with purpose and promise, "Beasts of the Southern Wild" is as stirring and striking a film as you could wish for at Sundance. Shot and set in a Louisiana community called The Bathtub, on the wrong...

    Sundance Review: '2 Days In New York' A Funny & Welcome Sequel Worthy Of Its Predecessor

Both lead artist...

    SUNDANCE REVIEW: 'The Imposter' Is a Con Man Doc That Messes With Your Head

    "From the producers of 'The Tillman Story' and 'Man on Wire,'" reads a description for "The Imposter" provided by the Sundance Film Festival, which might have added "No kidding." Documentarian Bart Layton's engaging investigation into a bizarre 1997 ...

    SUNDANCE REVIEW: 'Back to the Future' Meets 'Juno' In Capricious 'Safety Not Guaranteed'

    It's probably unfair to describe "Safety Not Guaranteed" as "Back to the Future" by way of "Juno," as it certainly sets the bar too high. But in terms of entertainment value and tone, the shoe fits. Colin Trevorrow's good-natured romantic comedy takes a handful of characters facing familiar conundru...

    Sundance Review: 'Celeste And Jesse Forever' A Charming Tale Of Romance & Heartbreak In The Vein Of 'When Harry Met Sally'

    If "(500) Days of Summer" is bound to be considered this generation’s "Annie Hall" (not its equal, mind you, but its closest equivalent), then it’s fair to claim that "Celeste And Jesse Forever" follows in the footsteps of "When Harry Met Sally," p...

    Sundance Review: 'The Imposter' A Remarkable & Entertaining Tale About The Illusion Of Truth

    It isn’t often that audiences will feel inclined to believe the word of a proven liar over a family who suffered as a result of his dishonesty, but “The Imposter” achieves that unusual feat. A documentary about a family stricken with tragedy that unwittingly takes in a con artist, ...

    Sundance Review: 'Safety Not Guaranteed' A Grounded, Genuine, Oddly Effective Charmer

    Although at this point there are way too many stories about quirky man-children and the women who love them, “Safety Not Guaranteed” is an oddly effective little charmer. A film that harkens back to the magical-realism adventures of the 1980s rather than the twee dollhouse making of the ...
