Sundance 2013

It's all in who you don't know: An outsider's view of Sundance

For me, the best of the fest was Before Midnight, the third installment in Richard Linklater's cyclical study of life and love (starring co-writers Ethan Hawke and Julie Delpy). Smart, funny and filled with small but profound insights, it delivered everything fans of 1995's Before Sunrise and 2004's Before Sunset hoped for, proving that after nearly 20 years, Jesse and Celine are still a fascinating and lovable couple.

If I have one regret, it's that I wasn't able to catch Escape From Tomorrow. Probably the most buzzed-about movie at the fest, Randall Moore's black-and-white indie was audaciously shot inside Disney World and Disneyland without the park's knowledge. Suicide, ghoulish princesses and vomit all play a role in the film's nightmarish narrative and audience reactions were mostly positive. Nevertheless, don't count on catching the movie at your local cineplex. Rumors of an impending lawsuit from Disney loom large.

BIGGEST REVELATION AT SUNDANCE:
In my quest to find the quintessential Utah dish, I asked several Utahns what their signature cuisine was. The answer, each and every time, was green Jell-O with shaved carrots.
