The best drama at Sundance 2011!
26 January 2011 | by (New York, NY) – See all my reviews

Hard to predict if the Sundance jury will vote for GUN HILL ROAD or not. But as an attendee who has screened virtually all of the other films in dramatic competition at this year's Sundance (2011), I can confidently state, hands down, that GUN HILL ROAD deserves to win. For what it's worth, I was one of only a handful of posters last year who accurately predicted the win for WINTERS BONE in the Dramatic competition (2010). GUN HILL ROAD, set in New York City's Bronx borough and primarily along the heavily traveled, real-life street of the same name, is the latest example of the outstanding performance skills of Esai Morales. He is long overdue for major awards acknowledgment and this film looks like a solid contender to be his ticket back into major awards consideration.
