Our five favorite Sundance movies so far

timeout.com — The (non)blizzard may be (non)pounding on NYC, but this year's Sundance Film Festival is in full swing with many East Coasters trapped for at least another day. Even though we're only at the halfway mark, a handful of films have dominated the conversation.

The Forbidden Room

timeout.com — Welcome to , an exhilarating slipstream of two-strip technicolor havoc that feels like an exquisite corpse assembled from every leftover idea that filmmaker Guy Maddin has ever had. A dense quilt of nested scenes that were allegedly pulled from the cinema's great abandoned films, The Forbidden Room never proves that Maddin is reanimating "real" lost projects, but how real can a film be if it was never shot?

timeout.com — Okay, so it was the blizzard that wasn't, but hey, at least you got a snow day out of it. One perk of this not-so-snowpocalypse, aside from the snow-day specials around NYC, is that plenty of restaurants and bars are back up and running today, so you can stop trying to cobble a meal together out of the condiments in your fridge.

Taken At Midnight

timeout.com — The story of German lawyer Hans Litten is not as well-known as it ought to be. Mark Hayhurst's new play strives to fix that, by telling of the remarkable moment when Litten stood up to Adolf Hitler, and his subsequent, terrible punishment for it.

Giles Coren on mindfulness: ‘It is cynical capitalist techno smegma’

now-here-this.timeout.com — Take a deep breath as Giles Coren gives the cult of 'mindfulness' a piece of his mind. We have heard an awful lot about mindfulness lately.
