Jay and Mark Duplass may be growing beyond the M-word cinematic subculture they continue to be lumped in with, but they haven't left the exploration of raw human emotion behind. 2010's "Cyrus" with Jonah Hill saw them marrying their quirkier sensibilities with a more broadly appearing movie, but one that didn't hold back on the truth of its characters, in a story that moved and twisted in interesting directions. And the same is promised with "Jeff Who Lives At Home," on the surface a buddy comedy with Jason Segel and Ed Helms, but as the trailer suggests, one that will dig a little deeper.

Perhaps best known to genre fans stateside for his thriller "Cold Fish" or the epically bonkers "Love Exposure," last year Sono went to Venice with "Himizu" his tale centered on the danger zone following the Japanese earthquake. And with cameras now rolling on this next film, he hasn't left that event behind.

If every Sundance film festival needs at least one documentary to remind white people of all the great music in the world they don’t know about, at least “Searching For Sugar Man” seems like 2012’s front-runner for the best one. A born crowd-pleaser whose central mystery begets a great triumph of grace and modesty, Malik Bendjelloul’s documentary about forgotten-before-he-was-known folk-pop singer Rodriguez is a hugely entertaining, emotionally touching, and musically revelatory experience.

One of the most emotionally charged documentaries headed to Sundance this year is the Peter Jackson-produced, Amy Berg-directed "West Of Memphis." Earlier today, Deadline reported on rumors that had been flying about a last minute addition to the film, a scene that would bring forth important new evidence to the case that was only obtained in the last month. Press screenings prior to Sundance in New York and Los Angeles were apparently missing a scene, and right now with the film unspooling in Park City, a press release has gone out confirming the latest twist in the saga of the West Memphis Three.

There two things Hollywood seems to love these days: comic books and franchises. The lure of already established source material and a built in audience, make it an easier propostion for studio heads to throw big money at a movie, and if a project can bring with it an interesting concept as well, all the better.
