January: Sundance.

I get so mad at myself for not blogging sometimes. But, life goes on, and I get over it. But then I miss blogging again. Well, so much has been going on.
In January, I had the amazing opportunity to go back up to Sundance Film Festival and work with some awesome people. I also got to see several amazing (and some not-so-amazing) films. Some I have already signed up on Amazon.com for alerts. The films I loved most and highly recommend were: (In no particular order)

Page One: A Year Inside the New York Times

The Salesman

The Details
I couldn't find a clip for this, but it's a great film starring Tobey Maguire. After 10 years of marriage Jeff (Maguire) and his wife Nealy have a son, a nice home and a marriage that has lasted. After laying the sod for his backyard, a family of raccoons repeatedly tear up his backyard. This leads to poison, an affair, some crazies, and some hilarious moral holes. It's a must see.

Margin Call
Okay, couldn't find a clip for this either. This guy Sullivan (Zachary Quinto) is basically a rocket scientist working as an entry-level analyst for a company in the financial industry. He finds some information that could potentially be the downfall of the company. It's pretty fast moving and very interesting.

Perfect Sense
With Ewan McGregor and Eva Green, I knew this was going to be a great film.

In A Better World

These were a few of my favorite films. Perfect Sense and In A Better World were probably my most favorite. But all of the films were so well done.
