Meet the 2015 Sundance Filmmakers #39: Ryan Fleck and Anna Boden Explore Friendship and Magic in 'Mississippi Grind'

"Mississippi Grind" marks Fleck and Boden's fourth feature together -- and it's not their first to premiere at Sundance (their previous collaborations, "Half Nelson," "Sugar," and "It's Kind of a Funny Story" all visited Sundance as well).

There was, after all, a giant coffee table book about him that ended up under the trees of many a film nerd this Christmas, and little by little, his films are making their way onto Blu-ray, and Netflix just recently added a documentary that is a look back at his remarkable career. This fall also saw the release of "Inherent Vice," and while that is an adaptation of a Thomas Pynchon novel and very much a Paul Thomas Anderson film, there are more than a few echoes of Altman's "The Long Goodbye" in there. Now we've got the latest film from Anna Boden and Ryan Fleck, who have had an uneven career as filmmakers so far. They co-wrote "Half Nelson" together, and then started co-directing as well. I sort of like "Sugar," their first film as co-directors, »
