48:57 Brian's Sundance Recap
Coming Up: (yes, still) A year-end speed round, with reviews of I'm Not There, The Savages, My Kid Could Paint That, and quick reviews of nearly a dozen other new films that are in theaters now or will be on DVD soon, plus our 2007 year-in-review, all properly aged like fine but stinky cheese.
- Many of the links above go to blog entries that I posted over on Paste Magazine's web site.
- Brian Darr writes about film at his site, Hell on Frisco Bay.
- Here is my review of Azazel Jacobs' little-seen first film Nobody Needs to Know. (Download). Momma's Man, his third film, is a leap forward, but I'm excited to see a filmmaker who showed great promise early in his career now developing into a confident artist.
- And here is an aggregation of Sundance coverage from GreenCine Daily.
