Four new titles have been added to the lineup for the 2013 Sundance Film Festival — including a blast from the past.
Robert Rodriguez’s action drama "El Mariachi," which debuted at the 1993 festival, will return for a 20th-anniversary presentation in the From the Collection category. The movie stars Carlos Gallardo (who co-wrote the film with Rodriguez) as a mariachi guitarist who arrives in a Mexican border town at the same time as a hitman — who also carries a guitar case.
Other titles added to the festival:
"Magic Magic" » (U.S./Chile) Chilean director Sebastián Silva and American actor Michael Cera (who also collaborate on the Sundance film "Crystal Fairy") work together here in the story of an American girl (Juno Temple) who mentally unravels during a vacation in remote Chile. Also starring Emily Browning and Catalina Sandino Moreno. In the Park City at Midnight program.
"Muscle Shoals" » (U.S.) Greg "Freddy" Camalier directs this documentary about Rick Hall and FAME Studios, the Alabama recording studio that gave birth to the "Muscle Shoals" sound. Among the musicians appearing in the film are Mick Jagger, Keith Richards, Gregg Allman, Aretha Franklin, Etta James, Alicia Keys and Bono. In the Documentary Premieres section.
"Wrong Cops" » (U.S.) A bored cop sells drugs and harasses a teenager in a crime-free Los Angeles in this surreal tale that is being financed, screened and released as a series of standalone chapters. Written and directed by Quentin Dupieux ("Wrong," Sundance ’12). In the New Frontier section.
