Jason Guerrasio's Five Things about Sundance
1

Small, Intimate Films

Small, intimate films with non-actors are in vogue. So kudos to Sugar,Momma's Man, Ballast and Baghead.

2

Fannings' Return

After "Rapegate" last year [from Hounddog], Elle brings honor back to the Fanning name in Phoebe In Wonderland.

3

Blackberry Hatred

Looking at BlackBerrys during screenings has gone too far.

4

Stars Don't Make Films

Suddenly stars don't guarantee distribution deals — sorry Downloading Nancy, The Great Buck Howard, and The Mysteries Of Pittsburgh.

5

Debauchery

Even a blackout can't stop the swag, parties and debauchery in Park City... in fact, it just fuels the fire.
