There's apparently a great deal of controversy at this year's Sundance Film Festival. Generally I ignore the Sundance Film Festival, as it seems to be the movies' version of an uptight Vassar grad who stops shaving her armpits, smokes clove cigarettes and changes her name to Blix. Too much hippie-art pretension for my taste.
But this year there is a new controversy that has sucked me into a vortex.
Parker Posey is back.
I have no earthly idea why people keep putting her in their pictures. I really wish they wouldn't, because she just freaks me out with her witchiness. The only film where it worked in her favour was Dazed and Confused. After that she just sort of struts around every film like a praying mantis on meth--all scrawny and twitchy.
Anyway, this year is apparently her Sundance Comeback.
