If you still haven’t seen all of this year’s crop of Academy Award-nominated flicks, especially the big winners like Birdman, Boyhood, and The Grand Budapest Hotel, fear not — we’ve searched high and low to find where you can watch all the movies, online or on DVD.
LAST DAYS IN VIETNAM
Park City has proved to be a launching pad for indie movies. “Precious,” “Winter’s Bone” and “Beasts of the Southern Wild” (to name a few) all debuted at the festival and wound up racking up Oscar nominations. And on the heels of today’s Academy announcements, it turns out that this year’s crop of nominees is no different.
The Sundance Film Festival is a crucible for industry trends and finding emerging talent. Festival watchers tend to focus on the weak economic prospects for many of the films showcased in Park City. The independent marketplace is slowly evolving, but there was plenty to see. So what if no one film galvanized the festival the way BEASTS OF THE SOUTHERN WILD and FRUITVALE STATION did in recent years? The festival probably erred in starting off with its best offering, jazz thriller WHIPLASH. No other film topped the buzz generated by this one.
