» We Are Movie Geeks - Sundance 2013 – The Recap

by Dan Schindel, published on February 1, 2013 - 2:46 PM PST

Sundance Film Festival

I went to Sundance 2013, and all I got was this lousy runny nose… and screening nearly thirty films… and getting to listen to or even meet some great filmmakers… and taking a bunch of excellent pictures… okay, you can’t really make going to Sundance sound bad. I spent nine days at this year’s festival, freezing my extremities in Park City in between showings of movies and dining at horrendously overpriced eateries. The air was thick with snow, Mormons, rich jerks, and rich Mormon jerks. Check out my #schindance tag on Twitter to see all the random brain droppings that I made during the festival proper.

But now that it over, the exciting part comes: the reviews! Yes, it’s time for me to stop being selfish and share what I’ve seen with all of you out there on the web. So, without further ado, here are all the films I saw at Sundance 2013, grouped by type and by relative quality. There will be full articles about some of them coming soon, so keep an eye out for them.




Touchy Feely

Allegedly, this is about Rosemarie Dewitt as a massage therapist who develops an anxiety about touching people, but the parallel plot about her brother, Josh Pais, a dentist who somehow begins healing people, is about a hundred times funnier and more interesting. It’s a pretty formless movie, one that meanders around until it suddenly decides that it’s time to end. Which is a shame, since it’s got good performances and some great moments.



The East

Brit Marling plays a corporate spy who joins a group of eco-terrorists, only to fall for their leader, played by Alexander Skarsgaard. Often achingly suspenseful, it’s a smart examination of business vs. the environment. It’s also pretty silly in some aspects, but it still holds together.
