Jason Guerrasio's Five Things about Sundance

Small, Intimate Films

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


Fannings' Return

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


Blackberry Hatred

Looking at BlackBerrys during screenings has gone too far.
