Sundance Film Festival - DVD Collection

Sundance Film Festival - DVD Collection

Sundance is all about independent film, but those films have helped to launch the careers of some of Hollywood's biggest actors and directors. This DVD set includes 11 seminal Sundance films, and is a really powerful set of movies. It includes: Sex, Lies and Videotape, Clerks , The Usual Suspects, Smoke Signals, Boys Don't Cry, American Movie, In the Bedroom, Real Women Have Curves, Capturing the Friedmans and American Splendor. Great movies at a great price, so there's no excuse not to enjoy these. You'll have to get your own snacks, though. Thankfully the pause button and the bathroom will be nearby.

You've never heard of this movie, but please hear it now. Primer won the Grand Jury Prize at the 2004 Sundance Film Festival and has drawn repeat viewers eager to crack writer-director-star Shane Carruth's puzzler of a time-travel drama. Carruth, an engineer by training, plays inventor Aaron, whose entrepreneurial partnership with fellow brainiac Abe (David Sullivan) unexpectedly results in a process for traveling back several hours in time. The men initially use these rewind sessions to succeed in the stock market. But a dark consequence of their daily journeys eventually complicates matters. If this sounds like a very commercial, science fiction thriller, Primer is anything but that. Shot on 16mm for $7,000, the film has a tantalizing, sealed-in logic, akin to Memento, that forces viewers to see the fantastic with a certain dispassion. One may be tempted to sit through Primer again to more fully understand its paradoxes and ethical quandaries. You have to want to understand this movie. Watch it once, and you'll never get it. Watch it twice, and you'll like it even more, but won't understand it. Watch it three times, once with the commentary on and then read about it for 6 hours on the internet and you'll begin to understand. It takes dedication, but its worth it.

  • A very cute and touching movie about a young man with Asperger's syndrome finding love with his new upstairs neighbor. One of the better movies of 2009 for sure.

Particularly this story about the 2004 Documentary Devil's Playground. It's apparently about where when Amish kids turn 16, they're set free to indulge in a lifestyle of whatever bad things they want to get into and then decide for themselves if they want to return back to being Amish.

This wandering film wasn't just nominated for the Grand Jury prize at Sundance in the early 90s and then went on to become a cult classic. Completely hilarious and entirely awesome (if you liek this sort of thing). Slacker is must see.

This is an intimate look into the [work] life of creative genius Marc Jacobs. Juggling both Marc Jacobs and Louis Vuitton, the brilliant designer is the ultimate idea man, brainstorming and executing revolutionary campaigns simultaneously for each powerhouse. A very French documentary, Americans who aren't truly interested in fashion may grow tired of the fly-on-the-wall style, but for those who can't get enough of Marc Jacobs, this doc is brilliant.

  • I recommend the Actor's Boot Camp to anyone who wants to learn and become a successful actor. For more info. go to http://www.theactingcorps.com
