Yat Another Bad Sundance Movie
8 February 2008 | by (United Kingdom) – See all my reviews

It's movies like Anywhere USA that lost Sundance's luster.

Anywhere USA is everything you've come to expect from those "indie" films that are plaguing festivals and local theatres.

First of all, it's not really a "film" per se. It's shot on video and looks like it. Maybe there are people out there who don't mind watching a home video for two hours, but I do.

Then, it's overlong but fraught with dialogue and situations stretching oh-so-hard to be edgy-cool. And yet all it really does is bore from the lack of reality of the situations and characters.

Studio films aren't very good these days, and there is no relief in sight from the smaller films (and this one was one of the very few movies at Sundance that wasn't a studio movie trying to pass itself off as an indie).
