EVERYTHING COOL WE CAN'T WAIT TO SEE AT SUNDANCE
Picks from our entertainment editor, Emily Yoshida!
- •Lo and Behold: Reveries of the Connected WorldWerner Herzog explores what it means to be human on the internet. What single reason would there be to not be excited about this.
- •KiyaVR journalism pioneer Nonny de la Peña's short about a real-life domestic violence case will make its US debut at New Frontiers.
- •Swiss Army ManMusic video auteurs the Daniels make their feature film debut with an oddball survivalist drama starring Daniel Radcliffe as a corpse.
- •NomadsVR stars Felix and Paul continue their groundbreaking series with two new installments: Nomads: Masai and Nomads: Sea Gypsies.
- •The LureA Polish musical (!) drama set in the '80s about a pair of bloodthirsty siren sisters. I have a feeling this is going to be a much-needed dose of mid-festival weirdness.
- •Morris From America:Coming-of-age tales are a Sundance mainstay, but Morris looks to be both specific and uniquely charming — and there's a considerable amount of buzz around its young star, Markees Christmas.
- •Manchester by the SeaKenneth Lonergan! Making another movie! There's still hope in this world.
- •Operation AvalancheWe have heard rumors that this moon landing conspiracy drama skews more toward the comedic-absurdist end of things — which frankly, makes us all the more excited.
- •O.J.: Made in AmericaESPN Films is screening all seven and a half hours of their miniseries about the rise and fall of O.J. Simpson — just in time for Ryan Murphy's dramatic take on the subject on FX next month
