The End of the Tour (James Ponsoldt)


The last two trips director James Ponsoldt made to Sundance it was with two excellent dramas: Smashed and The Spectacular Now. This year, Ponsoldt returns with the often moving and consistently funny The End of the Tour. While the director’s latest may not be on par with his past two efforts, that’s not much of a problem considering the level of quality he achieves here. The End of the Tour follows a failed author, David Lipsky (Jesse Eisenberg), interviewing one of the most talked-about writers of the moment, David Foster Wallace (Jason Segel), for Rolling Stone magazine in 1996. Lipsky spends time with Wallace on the final days of his book tour for Infinite Jest. For the most part, the two get off to a good start, in spite of Wallace hoping to maintain his privacy. Things get bumpy when Lipsky starts to wonder: how can someone so brilliant be so normal? Wallace is a guy who eats burgers at McDonalds, teaches at a college, and, despite his success, struggles with depression and everyday problems. Their time together ultimately becomes more than just another interview. – Jack G. (full review)

Inside Out (Peter Docter)


Ever since Disney and Pixar announced that they’d begun working on Inside Out, it was clear that the concept had a wealth of of potential. This, despite the studio experiencing its first bad run of form at the time. Cars 2 had underperformed at the box office, Monsters University failed to live up to its predecessor. Indeed, if the house that Pixar built had lost its sheen, this high-concept idea seemed to be offering a new lick of paint. As it happened, despite some visual irregularities, Inside Out (directed by Pete Docter of Up fame) isn’t just a step in the right direction or simply a return to form; it’s amongst the smartest, funniest, and saddest films in the studio’s history. – Rory O. (full review)

She’s Funny That Way (Peter Bogdanovich)


The contemporary is overrated; sometimes, we have to look back in order to move forward; the new is always found in the old. These are some of the obvious mantras of Peter Bogdanovich, quite possibly the most misunderstood filmmaker in all of American cinema. (Just read Vincent Canby’s dumfounded reviews of the otherwise brilliant Saint Jack and They All Laughed.) The plot of his latest film, She’s Funny That Way, is a wish-wash of knots and tangles where, through sheer coincidence, the characters end up whimsically encountering each other. “A city of eight million people and everybody knows everybody. – James K.
