15
From fringe-movement docs to a baker's dozen of Cate Blanchetts – our picks for the 15 best movies & performances at the 2017 Sundance Film Festival. Sundance (3)

We went in to the 2017 Sundance Film Festival with 25 titles we were dying to catch – and some 40 movies, numerous long shuttle rides, dozens of snow flurries and several bottles of eye-drops later, we returned from Park City, Utah, wowed by movies that ran the gamut from high-fiber documentaries to high-caliber dramas to a mood piece featuring Casey Affleck under a sheet that made us feel high. Per usual, the 2017 edition coughed up a handful of expected treasures, some real out-of-nowhere stunners and occasional disappointments ... and even some of those latter ones came blessed with some acting turns that stayed with us long after we trudged into the slush outside the theater. Here are our choices for the best movies and performances from this year's Sundance.
