"Keep the Lights On" (U.S. Dramatic) » "Ira Sachs (‘The Delta,’ ‘Forty Shades of Blue’) returns to Sundance with what could be this year’s ‘Weekend’ — a decade-long love story between two men struggling with addiction and sexual compulsion."
"Bachelorette" (Premieres) » "A promising cast including Kirsten Dunst, Isla Fisher and Lizzy Caplan headline a sort of indie ‘Bridesmaids’ in this comedy about three friends from high school reuniting to throw their frenemy’s bachelorette party."
"How to Survive a Plague" (U.S. Documentrary) » "Chronicling the history of two of the most influential HIV/AIDS activists groups — ACT UP and TAG — David France’s ‘How To Survive a Plague’ could be a powerful depiction of the largely unsung heroes of the onset of HIV/AIDS."
"I’m looking forward to seeing what filmmakers are doing with the new, low-to-the-ground technologies, such as the video-capable Canon range of DSLRs: stuff that expands a visual/emotional grammar, like 2011’s over-the-swoon ‘Like Crazy,’ more than stuff that doesn’t, like the fevered ‘I’ll Melt With You.’ What films might expand our idea of what can be done with modest means?"
"Nobody Walks" (U.S. Dramatic) » by Ry Russo-Young.
"For Ellen" (U.S. Dramatic) » by So Yong-Kim.
"Simon Killer" (U.S. Dramatic) » by Antonio Campos.
"I don’t know the format of any of these films, but prior work by the filmmakers holds promise."
