Sundance Films, Day 1 – Marginalization

,

Largely, Sundance films are marginalized films about marginalized people. The three films many of us saw yesterday are what some might call “stereotypical” Sundance films, because they focused on seldom-told stories, and they picture their characters as anything but stereotypes…

The Artist

,

There is nothing technically wrong with this movie – it’s not a bad film – but there isn’t anything particularly worthy of note either. If this wasn’t a silent film, I don’t think anyone would care about it at all…

My Favorite Films I (Re)Viewed in 2011

,

The following ten films are the films I saw in the theater that have most impacted me and helped me love the world better in the previous year. When I entertain a film and allow a film to entertain me, I am trying to do what Jesus did and rub shoulders with the people of earth so that I may love the world better…

The Power of Film: The Army of the 12 Monkeys

,

In 1996, I was a blonde haired, blue eyed, Northern California daughter of a banker father and a stay at home mother. Mike, my boyfriend and star football player and I, a dancer with my high school squad, set out on a typical Saturday evening date-night. Not telling my parents goodbye, I hurried out of the house and into Mike’s Mustang. Our movie started in 15 minutes…

Deep Stories On Flat Screens

,

Is visual media the best antidote to an atrophied imagination? That’s what got us there in the first place. At its core, visual media is projected light on a flat screen. How could telling simple community stories on a flat screen be deep or rich?

Cars: Slow Down and Enjoy the Ride

Some have called Cars Pixar’s greatest achievement, while others have considered it their worst effort (but even those critics admit that every other animation studio only wishes they could make such a “clunker”). But $5 billion in merchandising sales alone since Cars came out five years ago, and a growing enthusiasm for Cars 2 which will was released this summer suggest that Lasseter’s quirky story about a menagerie of cars has already proven an endearing addition to the animation lexicon.

A Serious Man

This, however, does not mean one’s suffering will be eased in the meantime. What makes A Serious Man compelling is its ability to evoke a sense of helplessness that all of us have surely experienced at some point in life…

A Beautiful Mind

,

Goldman says that the script was written to capture the spirit of the journey that the Nashs made. It is the case that John and Alicia Nash (portrayed by Russell Crowe and Jennifer Connelly) “loved the screenplay.” But even if they hadn’t, Goldman’s attempt to bring the disease out of the corners of our world and into the light is worthy of commendation.

The King’s Speech

,

Films about the British royal family always carry an air of inaccessibility, but it is that very air that makes them engrossing. The best British royal films always show the royals to be just like the rest of us albeit a bit more concerned about decorum. This is okay too though, because they are, after all, not allowed to be themselves, but carriers of an identity hundreds of years old…
