Picturing Sundance 2014 x 13 (Plus 140-Character Grasps For Instantaneous Truth)

If you go to parties, you miss movies. If you go to movie after movie after movie, you don’t have time to write, let alone think. But! Thank the Movie Godz for Twitter and for photographs. The quick quip and apt snap are more quickly up on my Twitter and Instagram (with RTs from others at the MCNtweets account). A raft of full-on reviews may have to wait a couple days: Wednesday and Thursday are sizing up as quadruple features, at the least. I’m dying to describe the titanic charm and simple, subversive comic loveliness of Obvious Child at length, as well as delve into the painterly effects of Love Is Strange, the look of which seems patterned after many of the artists who would have been contemporaries of John Lithgow’s character. Alas! Twitter reactions and more photos below. (The actual Twitter handle is @ebertmovie.)

Shuttle

Get off the shuttle, the cool air hits your face, the dusk is blue and luminous, the chatter of the bus falls away, and on the sidewalk, you run into people you’re meant to run into.

What about replacing Mr. Spacey with another actor? Mr. Plummer, perhaps.
“That would theoretically be fantastic,” Mr. Rothman said he responded. “But I have supervised 450 movies over the course of my career. And what you are saying is impossible. There is not enough time.”
~ Publicizing Sir Ridley’s Deadline Dash

“Would I like to see Wormwood in a theater on a big screen? You betcha. I’d be disingenuous to argue otherwise. But we’re all part of, like it or not, an industry, and what Netflix offers is an opportunity to do different kinds of films in different ways. Maybe part of what is being sacrificed is that they no longer go into theaters. If the choice is between not doing it at all and having it not go to theaters, it’s an easy choice to make.”
