AN AMERICAN CRIME

user
Sunday, January 21-- What could possibly lead human beings to such unspeakable acts? That was the question AN AMERICAN CRIME director Tommy O'Haver (BILLY'S HOLLYWOOD SCREEN KISS, ELLA ENCHANTED) asked himself after the incident occurred involving Sylvia Likens and Gertrude Baniszewski in his hometown of Indianapolis. In 1965, 16-year old girl, Sylvia, was found starved and tortured in the basement of a suburban home. Her beatings were done by her caretaker, Gertrude, and Gertrude's children...

Sunday, January 21----Actor Kevin Bacon and his actress wife Kyra Sedgwick (who just won a Golden Globe Award last week for her role in the television drama THE CLOSER) were in Park City to launch their charitable website sixdegrees.org, a charitable community in which celebrities and regular folks alike share their favorite charity.

Interview With Mike Cahill, Director of KING OF CALIFORNIA

Sunday, January 21----One of the more anticipated big-name films that has its world premiere later this week is KING OF CALIFORNIA, a comedy drama about the often flinty relationship between a father and a daughter. The film stars Michael Douglas in one of the quirkiest performances of his long career, and Evan Rachel Wood, a fast rising star who made her mark a few years ago with the Sundance sleeper THIREEN (directed by Catherine Hardwicke, who is serving as a juror this year). KING OF C...

Sundance Diary: Fuck The Parties

Saturday, January 20----It borders on heresy, but after spending the last two evenings attempting to attend parties TO WHICH I WAS OFFICIALLY INVITED, I am loudly proclaiming for all to hear: "Fuck the parties!". Of course, trying to crash parties is one of the key Sundance sports, along with ticket scalping and Redford spotting. The fever begins in the early part of the day, as information on the night's soirees heat up cel phones and email connections. What's on? Where is it? How do I get a...

A Bittersweet Homage To An Indie Icon

Saturday, January 20----It is pretty much di rigeur that if one has one's film at the Sundance Film Festival, one moves hell and high water to make it here for the premiere. A rare exception to this rule is the case of the film WAITRESS, written, directed and co-starring Adrienne Shelly, a beloved indie actress who made her first impressions in the early films of auteur Hal Hartley (whose FAY GRIM is premiering here as well). Ms. Shelly, sadly, will not make an appearance in Park City this wee...

user

Many have gotten a glimpse of the trailer on YouTube.com which has already attracted over 600,000 views.

Director M dot Strange developed a new style of animation which is called Str8nime. M dot Strange spent 10 years developing...

Redford Sightings

January 19----Like a rare bird in flight, an extinct animal in the wild, a glimpse of a special species of tropical fish...one of the delights of the Sundance Film Festival is an activity known as "Redford sightings"....seeing the Sundance superstar Robert Redford in his natural habitat. Attached a few Redford sightings from the past 24 hours: Sandy Mandelberger Sundance Online Dailies Editor ...

Sundance Diary: A Rough Start.......

user
Friday, January 19----I know I should have planned it differently. When I usually attend a film festival, I make sure to arrive a day early, in order to adjust to the maddening pace, and also encounter the inevitable lines, mix ups and technical snafus. Well, all of the above greeted me when I arrived this morning at the Marriot Park City Hotel, the Festival's main hq. In order of annoyance, my Press Badge was not there (even though I had diligently sent in my Accreditation request in in early...

Friday, January 19----Photo Op: Sundance Film Festival Director Geoffrey Gilmore, Sundance Film Institute Founder Robert Redford and CHICAGO 10 Director Brett Morgen at yesterday's Opening Press Conference, held at the Egyptian Theater on Main Street in Park City. ...

Sundance Opens On A Historical Note

Friday, January 19----And so we're off.....the Sundance Film Festival opened last evening with the world premiere of CHICAGO 10, an intoxicating mix of straight-ahead documentary, visionary animation and truthful recreation of one of the more shameful periods of recent American history. The trial of the Chicago 10, leaders of the anti-war protestors who had gathered in Chicago for the 1968 Democratic Party Convention to express their outrage with the Vietnam War, was a milestone clash between...

The Problem and the Promise of Sundance

Thursday, January 18----I will freely admit it….I’ve got a little bit of a problem with Sundance. First, there is the location. As a New York City boy, I have always been more impressed with film festivals that happen in real cities, as opposed to the rarified environment of beach resorts (Cannes, Deauville), mountain retreats (Sundance, Telluride) or country wilds (The Hamptons). For me, there is no replacing the mixed vitality of a first class festival that is part of the fabric of a di...

Experiencing The Sundance Film Festival Online

Wednesday, January 17-----If you are still thinking of attending the Sundance Film Festival but don't already have your air ticket to Salt Lake City, your Park City hotel reservation, or any film screening tickets....you pretty much better stay home. The small resort town of Park City, with a usual population of 5,000, will swell to quadruple its size starting tomorrow, as the Sundance Film Festival begins a 10-day extravaganza of world premieres, information seminars, extravagant parties and ...

The Gay Edge At Sundance

user
Tuesday, January 16-----As one of the world’s most cutting-edge film festivals, Sundance has been a welcoming environment for gay and lesbian filmmakers and their unique perspectives. Whether immersed in gay subject matter, or adding a particular gay spin to a genre film (hard to describe, but you know it when you see it), there is a definite gay edge at Sundance, evidenced by films with GLBT interest (that’s Gay, Lesbian, Bisexual and Transgender for you sexual innocents) and a slew of in...

The Comic Touch of Mike White

Monday, January 15----Mike White, whose off-kilter humor and perceptive writing made such films as CHUCK AND BUCK and THE GOOD GIRL major Sundance discoveries of the past few years, is back in Park City with an auspicious directorial debut, YEAR OF THE DOG. In this richly crafted tale of self-discovery, White invests his characters and their comedic confusion with a poignant and compassionate touch that has pundits dubbing the film as next season's LITTLE MISS SUNSHINE. Not only has White c...

Anthony Hopkins Makes His Directorial Debut

Friday, January 12----What do you do when you have won every acting accolade there is, including the coveted Oscar for an iconic role (that people will still be talking about 100 years from now)....direct an independent feature, of course. That is the decision made by Anthony Hopkins, whose Oscar-winning turn as Hannibal Lecter in Jonathan Demme's THE SILENCE OF THE LAMBS, is the stuff of legend. After more than 100 feature and television films in a 40 year career, Hopkins (at the ripe young a...

The Return of Hal Hartley

Thursday, January 11-----One of the highlights of the upcoming Sundance Film Festival (at least for me) is the opportunity to see the latest film from Hal Hartley, who really put independent film on the map back in the day when it was still a small community of individual risktakers. With such films as THE UNBELIEVABLE TRUTH (1989), TRUST (1990), SIMPLE MEN (1992) and AMATEUR (1992), Hartley stood at the nexus of European film artistry and American independent virtuosity. His last few films h...
