What to See at Sundance

So you've decided to skip the inauguration and stay in the friendly confines of Park City, Utah. Don't be ashamed! The Los Angeles Times has your viewing guide to this year’s must-see Sundance films. Brief Interviews With Hideous Men, from John Krasinski, is the first adaptation of a David Foster Wallace story. In Good Hair, Chris Rock explores African-American hairstyles. There’s the James Toback documentary Tyson, about the former heavyweight champ; the Anna Wintour doc The September Issue; and, for those who love to mix genres, the Nazi zombie flick Dead Snow. The paper describes it thusly: “cabin, skis, snowmobile, toboggan, copious amounts of beer, and a fertile mix of the sexes.” You can’t get that in Washington, D.C.
