2015 Sundance Awards Live-Blog: 'The Witch' Takes Directing Award, 'Me and Earl' Wins Audience

2 hours ago | Thompson on Hollywood | See recent Thompson on Hollywood news »

Funny woman Tig Notaro has brought her droll comic stylings to Sundance to host the festival's 2015 awards, which are now underway. Stay tuned, and follow me on Twitter @ryanlattanzio, for updates. Us Dramatic juror Cary Fukunaga handed the Us Dramatic Directing Award to Robert Eggers, definitely nervous, for his detail-obsessed, masterful horror pic "The Witch." "The thing about this film was how collaborative it was... all of the producers and investors really supported what this film needed in order to make it as good as it needed to be, and I'm so honored." "Cartel Land"'s Matthew Heineman picked up the Us Documentary Directing Award, dedicating the prize to victims of "the senseless violence that has perpetuated in the drug wars in Mexico." The first-ever U.S. Dramatic Special Jury Award for Excellence in Editing went to "Dope," the sprawling, drug-addled teen comedy snapped up by Open Road and Sony early in the. »

How Virtual Reality Technology is Changing Documentary Filmmaking

5 hours ago | Indiewire | See recent Indiewire news »

At this year's New Frontier exhibition at the Sundance Film Festival, doubts about the staying power of virtual reality are fading away. Visitors wait in long lines and the exhibition floors are fully packed for a technology that has been in the making for decades but hasn't yet been able to quite get off the ground. Of the 15 works presented, 11 incorporate a Vr headset, either via 360 degree video or computer-generated 3D environments. Though it has long been the purview of gaming, the film world is now also paying close attention to Vr. There is a palpable buzz about how this new medium will change the mediascape and revolutionize cinema. It is hard to ignore that this excitement is partially caused by the novelty of the technology. This makes the critical distance required for thoughtful criticism and reflection difficult to achieve; however, even if the Vr does not live up to all expectations, »

Sundance: 'Take Me to the River' Is a Tantalizing Southern Gothic

5 hours ago | Thompson on Hollywood | See recent Thompson on Hollywood news »

Sundance Next entry "Take Me to the River" is director Matt Sobel's fascinating first feature. At turns befuddling and obfuscating, this psychosexually charged tale centered on gay teenager Ryder, played by excellent newbie Logan Miller, gets its hooks in you very quickly, managing to sustain that tension for an increasingly bizarre, what-the-fuck-inducing 90 minutes. Ryder is out to his free-thinking, California parents—but not to the backwater Nebraskan extended family he's about to confront at a rural family reunion that you could almost call a comedy of manners and errors, if it weren't spiked with so much murky, underlying menace. Wearing yellow wayfarers, a deep V-neck and red shorty shorts, Ryder doesn't exactly mesh with his redneck relatives, and especially not with his uncle, the perturbed and totally creepy paterfamilias played with beady-eyed malevolence by Josh Hamilton. During a dysfunctional family picnic, Ryder's nine-year-old cousin Molly takes an »

Critic's Notebook: Why This Year's Sundance Revealed an Exciting Stage for American Movies

5 hours ago | Indiewire | See recent Indiewire news »

One of the more revealing moments at this year's Sundance Film Festival arrived not on the cusp of a major sale, or during an emotional standing ovation, but rather with a curious reminder of the past. On Saturday night, the festival's director of programming Trevor Groth took to the stage at the Egyptian Theater to introduce a very uncharacteristic Sundance selection: The Wachowskis' absurdly campy space opera "Jupiter Ascending," a Warner Bros. release snuck into the festival as a secret screening for the select few who managed to snag tickets and cared to show up. With its mega-million-dollar production values and a long-eared Channing Tatum as an alien bodyguard hurtling through the solar system, alongside a smitten Mila Kunis batting her eyelashes in search of a plot, "Jupiter Ascending" felt noticeably out of place at a festival allegedly designed to operate outside the constraints of Hollywood. By that same token, »
