With a debut set for the fall, James Ponsoldt‘s devastating look at alcoholism, Smashed, will now get an added bump after premiering at Sundance (where we called it one of the top films).

There is no room for rushed judgement or quick-witted observations; Bresson makes Serious Art, as opposed to Hollywood directors who do not. There are the key phrases to […]
