Sundance 07 Day 10 Wrap-Up: The End Has Come - 31 Films Down

Sundance

This is the very last of the "daily" coverage of Sundance. I'm sure all of you who aren't here or don't care about these films are getting awfully tired of all this content, so fortunately it's nearly over. I will be posting our awards and top films as well as some interviews and additional content from the fest over the next week, but other than that we're back to the normal routine. I've seen a total of 31 films at the festival - a bit low considering how many days I slept in instead of gone to a screening - but overall an unforgettable experience.

Remarkably, many of the better movies I saw early on in the fest, during the opening weekend. The Good Life, Delirious, and Clubland were all unforgettable, and they all screened very early on. It just seemed to get worse as time went on, but then there would be a day thrust in where I found a bunch of gems. In the end I found at least 10 films that I really enjoyed and am looking forward to seeing again or at least anticipating its theatrical release. And with nearly every last film I can't wait for everyone else to finally see and hear their opinion, because they're all so vastly original.

So far Sundance has been one of my greatest experiences in the film industry. Although this isn't as enormous as meeting Sam Raimi at Comic-Con, Sundance has made me appreciate independent film much more. I got to meet many of my favorite actors and directors - Nathan Fillion and Luc Besson to name a few - as well as many visionaries and up-and-coming individuals. If you love film and independent or artistic cinema, then you need to come to Sundance. Just being around the people out here, meeting other professional and film aficionados, and even just breathing the mountain air in Park City is all worth any cost. Until next January, this is Alex signing off from the daily coverage from Park City, Utah!
