    Sundance. No men under the age of 30 allowed.
    Sundance. No women over the age of 30 allowed.

    Who’s the broad in the hat. She’s a humdinger.

    Women can smell that kind of desperation Dave. No wonder no women come to this blog, your constant lecherous oggling of unattainable young women (mcadams syndrome) is reaching fever pitch. Here’s a tip. Grab some snow. Apply to the throbbing thing below your belt.
    Can you either (A) tell us about some movies (B) some decent gossip.

    well gals, and us female replicants, do come to these here parts, JB Doctor. we just usually don’t give out our websites.
    put some snow on the camera lens too DPo (if there’s any left over), it might shift the colour balance a little.
    you don;t have to write big azz reviews but maybe 2-3 sentences on each movie, especially if they are likely to never be seen again *or* might sit on a shelf for 2 years.

    There have been movie reviews and comments every day, if not here then on MCN’s Sundance page…

    “There have been movie reviews and comments every day, if not here then on MCN’s Sundance page…”
    Yes, but…skimpy. Mostly comments about Hound Dog and who bought what for how much; Not very many reviews (only 5 on the MCN Sundance page between 3 people: David Poland, Ray Pride, and Justine Elias); and too much space wasted on the usual “its so hard navigating around this little town”. I know. Anybody who’s read a report from the festival since the late 80’s knows. Its known already.
    How sad is it that MCN’s USA Today link (AB-positive’s Sundance notebook) has more info on films that are playing there than most of the blogs I’ve searched through? And Well’s HE has been one of the absolute worst, I’m sad to say. Most of what he wrote could’ve been done just as thoroughly from Topeka, Kansas.

    The lack of a comprehensive list of reviews of festival films has been very disappointing to me.

“What Quibi trying to do is get to the next generation of film narrative. The first generation was movies, and they were principally two-hour stories that were designed to be watched in a single sitting in a movie theater [ED: After formats like the nickelodeon]. The next generation of film narrative was television, principally designed to be watched in one-hour chapters in front of a television set. I believe the third generation of film narrative will be a merging of those two ideas, which is to tell two-hour stories in chapters that are seven to ten minutes in length. We are actually doing long-form in bite-size.”

“The important thing is: what makes the audience interested in it? Of course, I don’t take on any roles that don’t interest me, or where I can’t find anything for myself in it. But I don’t like talking about that. If you go into a restaurant and you have been served an exquisite meal, you don’t need to know how the chef felt, or when he chose the vegetables on the market. I always feel a little like I would pull the rug out from under myself if I were to I speak about the background of my work. My explanations would come into conflict with the reason a movie is made in the first place — for the experience of the audience — and that, I would not want.
