Unlike the fall film festivals, Sundance is pretty much unpredictable. Few saw Beasts of the Southern Wild or Fruitvale Station coming, but they managed to create massive buzz at the festival. That being said, some movies can generate tons of buzz at the festival and then disappear when they’re released into theaters like The Birth of a Nation or Me and Earl and the Dying Girl. Some promising-looking films disappoint, and movies that sounded corny end up winning over audiences. You never know what to expect, and obviously the programmers want every movie to sound worthwhile.
But looking over this year’s program guide and the talent involved, these are my five must-see movies for Sundance 2018.
