This weekend brings the premiere of Kevin Smith‘s latest indie effort, the horror comedy Yoga Hosers, at the 2016 Sundance Film Festival. There isn’t a trailer for the film just yet, but the writer/director who launched his career at the indie film fest decided to tease what’s waiting for all of us catching flicks in the mountains with the first Yoga Hosers clip.
Harley Quinn Smith (the filmmaker’s daughter) and Lily-Rose Depp (daughter of Johnny Depp, who also stars in the film) take the leads in the movie, and here we get to see that they’re not too far removed from a couple of characters that Smith’s fans should be very familiar with. Read More »

Morris From America is a wonderful and heartfelt cross-cultural coming-of-age tale about an African-American boy trying to adapt in Germany. This hip-hop-infused rite of passage story would work well in a triple feature alongside other Sundance films like Dope and The Wackness.

When you’re at the Sundance Film Festival, there are a lot of tropes that you get used to. Estranged family, loved one dying of cancer, coming of age romance, and comedy actors looking to show that they can be dramatic too. But sometimes you get something absolutely bonkers that doesn’t have any of those things. That something is The Lure.
Hailing from Poland, the film from director Agnieszka Smoczynska is full of style, and it will undoubtedly be the best Polish rock musical with bloodthirsty sirens you’ll ever see, but that’s mostly because it’s the only one of its kind. Read on for The Lure review from Sundance. Read More »

On paper, Other People sounds like the most stereotypical of Sundance movies: it’s a semi-autobiographical indie dramedy (check) about a gay New York writer (check, check, check) who returns to his hometown (check) to care for his dying mother (bingo!). But in practice, every element is so well executed that the film itself feels like something special.
Said gay New York writer is David, played by Jesse Plemons in his first feature lead role, and the film makes a strong case for giving him more such parts. His performance isn’t especially showy, but he’s got an unassuming everyman charisma that makes him effortlessly watchable. Read More »
It’s been two years since the indie drama Imperial Dreams debuted at the Sundance Film Festival, and that was just before star John Boyega landed what will likely be the biggest role of his career in Star Wars: The Force Awakens.
Sadly, the film, which isn’t about Finn having dreams of joining the Empire, still doesn’t have distribution despite the fact that it’s deserving of an audience. That’s why the Imperial Dreams trailer has made its away online in an effort to get some more buzz and interest on the film again. Check it out below! Read More »
