Sundance Post Mortem/A Separation/TFF #39?

Good Morning!

I'm back after a couple of days away at my regular job...


Well, The Sundance Film Festival is done for 2012 and it has been fun posting the musings of Cinema Bebop's Gnat Lee.  There were three films (as I have said) that seemed to me to be most intriguing: "Beasts of the Southern Wild", "The Surrogate" and "The Words"  IndieWire has a post up with the critical response to the films and performances that played Sundance this year.  You can find that here:

Interestingly, "Beasts" and "Surrogate" got a lot of critical attention.  "The Words" not so much.


Asghar Farhadi's "A Separation" continues its American roll out this week.  It was featured with two Chicago outlets.

And also Roger Ebert's blog:


During the just completed Sundance Fest, IndieWire posted its list of most anticipated indie films for 2012, many of which played in Utah.  But the list also includes some serious Telluride #39 possibilities, so you might want to take a look.  I think of particular interest would be "The Door", "Foxfire", "A Late Quartet" and "Song for Marion".  I've already mentioned "Quartet" and "Marion" in an earlier post as TFF possibilities...
