NY Magazine Unveils Sundance '07 Preview

Sadly (but temporarily), my own Sundance preparations have stolen me away from my regular duties here, but thank goodness for Logan Hill, Bilge Ebiri and the gang over at New York Magazine, whose earlier, more inflexible coverage deadlines result in this fairly staggering 2007 festival preview.

The pieces include a quick glimpse at both closely and loosely affiliated NYC projects, a more loving close-up of the year in "sex-shock cinema" selections like Black Snake Moan and Teeth, Q&A's with Rory Kennedy and Zoe Cassavetes and Hill's tidy profile of "Sundance kid" and Brooklyn native Steve Buscemi. Particularly noteworthy (if woefully brief) is Emma Rosenblum's chat with fest vet Vera Farmiga, featured this year in the competiton films Joshua and Never Forever:

What attracted you to Never Forever?

It was the most visceral love story I had ever read—a gut-wrenching affair between an Asian man and a Caucasian woman, which is a coupling that’s not often represented in American film. I play a woman who doesn’t know what she wants in life—I’m really someone who does.

Which is?

I just want more people to see my films.

At least she's honest -- and she won't be waiting long. Read the rest here.
