I wonder if Robert Redford is a fan of Bruce LaBruce...

Out of all of the international film festivals out there, Sundance thrills me the least. It's been a long time coming, long before the likes of Paris Hilton would show up there. Next year, my only real interest will be in the form of Bruce LaBruce's latest film, Otto; or Up with Dead People, which will make its world premiere on January 19th. Who knows when it'll make it to US theatres afterwards, but you can visit Otto's myspace page for more information. Also premiering is the film adaptation of Chuck Palahniuk's Choke, the debut film from actor Clark Gregg (The Adventures of Sebastian Cole, One Hour Photo, among others). This will be the second film based on Palahniuk's work (the first, of course, being Fight Club), and it looks as though an adaptation of his Invisible Monsters is on the way as well. Gregg co-stars along with Sam Rockwell, Kelly Macdonald, and Anjelica Huston.
