    What about Lena Dunham’s “Sharp Stick”?

    I will say… I was never bored watching it, however, it is a hot mess.

    It was awful honestly… It opened with a 20% score on RT and I completely agree.

    I just adored this film and after “Shithouse” and “Cha Cha,” Cooper Raiff has a lifelong fan in me. It seems to me like this film is the defining hit of Sundance, and as we wait to see where it lands, I am confident it’s a title we’ll be hearing about throughout the year as Raiff launches into the next phase of his career.

    This could’ve been written by me, Cha Cha is everything that makes Raiff great!

    **I feel the exact same way about When You Finish Saving the World, just did absolutely nothing for me. We only disagree on Good Luck to You, Leo Grande, although Thompson gives a great performance everything just felt kinda lukewarm.

    I’m not sure about the overall consensus but everything I’ve seen about it is negative

    Apple has closed the biggest deal of the 2022 Virtual Sundance Film Festival, securing worldwide rights to the Cooper Raiff-directed Cha Cha Real Smooth for around $15 million. Source: https://deadline.com/2022/01/apapple-cha-cha-real-smooth-15-million-dollar-world-rights-deal-sundance-film-festival-1234919859/ I’m looking forward to seeing this. Dakota has gotten great notices for her performance.

    Sounds like Dakota Johnson could be a real supporting actress threat for Cha Cha Real Smooth. Very much doubtful she wins, but with a few other potentially big movies coming out (Am I Ok and Persuasion), she could definitely have one of those Alicia Vikander / Florence Pugh combo hype moments.

    FYC: PHYSICAL (Rose Byrne) THE SEX LIVES OF COLLEGE GIRLS (Amrit Kaur, Renee Rapp) YELLOWJACKETS (Samantha Hanratty, Christina Ricci) THE OTHER TWO (Drew Tarver, Helene Yorke) THE GREAT (Elle Fanning) BETTER THINGS (Pamela Adlon)

    The Lost Daughter has now grounded her more in terms of prestige on both a mainstream and industry level which helps.

    FYC:

    "The Good Fight", "The Other Two" and "Station Eleven" in all categories, Sarah Lancashire ("Julia"), William Jackson Harper ("Love Life") and Luke Kirby ("The Marvelous Mrs. Maisel")

    892 won best ensemble, if it gets picked up by a good distributor John Boyega (and maybe Nicole Beharie?) could contend for acting nominations as well.

    I would love to see it. Nicole Beharie is criminally underrated.

    I like her but this is not going anywhere near the oscars lol. It will be a Gothams/indie spirits thing only.

    This year, the film most likely to succeed at the Oscars did not collect prizes: South African filmmaker Oliver Hermanus’ tearjerker “Living,” adapted by novelist-screenwriter Kazuo Ishiguro from Akira Kurosawa’s 1952 classic “Ikiru,” stars master thespian Bill Nighy as a proper Englishman who wakes up and sees the people around him in a new way when he learns he has months to live. Nighy’s delicate performance could nab him his first Oscar nomination, and Sony Pictures Classics will do everything they can to make that happen.
