This Sundance I dragooned New York-based Screen critic David D'Arcy into sharing his Sundance experience with us via Podcast. The first is a round-up of what we've seen and hear buzz about. We'll reconnoiter again for a wrap-up. Check back on Monday.

Enjoy. We cover the new films from Lynn Shelton, Julie Delpy, Mark Duplass and Katie Aselton; Peter Jackson and Amy Berg's "West of Memphis," Kirby Dick's "The Invisible War," "The Ambassador" (Madds Brugger's follow-up to "The Red Chapel"), Israeli-Palestine conflict doc "Five Broken Cameras," Aussie drama "Wish You Were Here," starring Joel Edgerton, and Eugene Jarecki's personal assault on the drug wars, "The House I Live In."
