After a hellish journey back from Park City, I've finally returned home to replenish myself after 13 days and nights of movies and mayhem. I'll probably be bloggery free for a few, but here's links to all my Sundance coverage in the meantime:

"We Were Here" Q&A With David Weissman

For me, one of the standout films at the 2011 Sundance Film Festival was David Weissman's chronicle of the AIDS epidemic "We Were Here." A very specific depiction of the onset of AIDS in America, the film focuses on the stories of five individuals who lived in San Francisco at the time - four gay men and a heterosexual woman who was a nurse in an AIDS ward. Through which, it provides a powerful snapshot of a part of American history that few seem to fully be aware of. Through certainly not the definitive AIDS documentary, Weissman provides an affecting sense of intimacy through focusing on just five people and one city. When you walk out of "We Were Here," you most definitely feel like you were.

Here's some clips from a panel in Sundance earlier this week that examined depictions of queer youth in several of this year's Sundance Film Festival films and expanded on how those stories relate to the recent media attention of suicide and queer youth in crisis. Gregg Araki (Director/Writer, Kaboom), Dee Rees (Director/Writer, Pariah), Erica Dunton (Director/Writer, to.get.her), and Daniel Sladek (Executive Producer, Prayers for Bobby) were all on the panel. Have a watch:

Elizabeth Olsen has definitely been one of the biggest talking poinst at this year's Sundance Film Festival. The lead in two very well received films at the fest - Chris Kentis and Laura Lau's haunted house thriller "Silent House" and Sean Durkin's "Martha Marcy May Marlene," a drama exploring a young woman's experiences in an abusive cult. Before last summer, the only film experience Olsen had was playing "Girl in Car" in 1994's "How the West Was Fun," a vehicle for her very famous older twin sisters, Mary-Kate and Ashley. But the Olsen family officially has a new known name in Elizabeth.

"Take Shelter" Q&A With Jeff Nichols

Definitely one of the frontrunners for the U.S. Dramatic Competition, Jeff Nichols' "Take Shelter" had its second screening in Park City last night and continued to win over audience members. Acquired by Sony Pictures Classics just prior to the fest, Nichols' psychological drama depicts Curtis, a thirtysomething family man who encounters a sudden struggle with mental illness. Starring Michael Shannon (who also starred in Nichols' previous film, "Shotgun Stories") as Curtis and Jessica Chastain (likely one of 2011's big breakouts between this and "The Tree of Life) as his wife, "Shelter" is a haunting and tense portrait of a family unravelling.
