  5. Sundance Diary, Day 5: Shut-ins, Gamblers, and Greta Gerwig

    Wesley Morris

    Some documentaries show up here and you can easily surmise what incited them. A filmmaker opened a newspaper, was transfixed by a public figure, felt a sense of social justice, knew Al Gore. The provenance of The Wolfpack is unclear. How did Crystal...

    Juliet Litman

    Call me biased, but it's always been difficult to make the case for Noel Crane over Ben Covington on Felicity. Scott Speedman's Ben spoke with brevity and effortlessly wore flannel far before its hipster heyday. Scott Foley's Noel was...
