Sundance 07 Day 3 Wrap-Up: Teeth, Waitress, Clubland, Interview
by Alex Billington
January 22, 2007
I'm falling in love with Sundance. No, no, I'm not going to move to LA and buy a bunch of fur coats - I'm just addicted to the screening life here. So many great movies in this huge theater with amazing image and sound quality; and the best of all - the cast and crew are all there.
I'm skipping those press screenings that everyone else is going to, because I prefer the atmosphere of the public screenings. I wish the director and most of the cast and nearly all of the crew (from cinematography to music) would show up at the end of every movie I see, even at regular showings back in Denver. It gives me a chance to see who they are, and maybe gain a little more respect for them and their film. I am always excited going in and have an enjoyable time even hearing what they have to say during the Q&A sessions at the end - despite whether I liked the film or not.
Sunday, Day 3, was a great day. Unlike the previous day, nearly every film today was damn good. I'm talking just incredible - not even a mediocre one in the batch. Teeth was the exciting horror comedy that quickly got picked up by Lionsgate and The Weinstein Company. Waitress and Clubland were both great romantic comedies, Clubland being just one tiny notch better. And directed by Steve Buscemi, Interview, another incredible film that you'll only ever see at Sundance (poor people who can't be here).
I'll be back again tomorrow with more reviews, news, and some interviews coming up this week, so keep in touch!
COMING SOON: Up for tomorrow is The Good Life, The Nines, and The Pool - all films I'm very much looking forward to.
