While the well-connected and the Hollywood indie elite are spending the week in Utah, attending the many premières and parties of the Sundance Film Festival, the rest of us are confined to living vicariously through celebrity gossip sites and waiting for the winners to slowly make their way to Camelview.
Lucky for us, a new video on YouTube is out to sum up everything we miss out on and truly don't miss about the movies at Sundance Film Festival. From the unrealistic dialogue made to seem profound by some obscure percussion-based soundtrack to the montage of human hysterics, "Not Another Sundance Movie" perfectly captures the redundant, asinine qualities that make Sundance films so "different" from mainstream Blockbusters.
Keep Phoenix New Times Free... Since we started Phoenix New Times, it has been defined as the free, independent voice of Phoenix, and we would like to keep it that way. Offering our readers free access to incisive coverage of local news, food and culture. Producing stories on everything from political scandals to the hottest new bands, with gutsy reporting, stylish writing, and staffers who've won everything from the Society of Professional Journalists' Sigma Delta Chi feature-writing award to the Casey Medal for Meritorious Journalism. But with local journalism's existence under siege and advertising revenue setbacks having a larger impact, it is important now more than ever for us to rally support behind funding our local journalism. You can help by participating in our "I Support" membership program, allowing us to keep covering Phoenix with no paywalls.
