With the Sundance Film Festival a little than a month away, it’s time for film lovers to check out the roster of films and snag passes for their favorites. This year’s fest will feature 110 movies from 29 countries, 100 of which are world premieres, and many of them documentaries. Out of several music docs, “Bad Reputation” is already generating some serious buzz. Directed by Kevin Kerslake, the film’s spotlight is on The Runaways founder and rock pioneer Joan Jett. Also highly anticipated is Sophie Sartain and Roberta Grossman’s “Seeing Allred,” about women’s rights attorney Gloria Allred, and “RGB,” Betsy West and Julie Cohen’s doc about Supreme Court justice Ruth Bader Ginsburg.
Director Ben Lewin’s “The Catcher Was a Spy” stars Paul Rudd in this true story of White Sox catcher Moe Berg, who was also a spy for the O.S.S. during World War II, and Maxim Pozdorovkin’s provocative comedy documentary, “Our New President” takes a look at Donald Trump’s campaign and launch to the White House via Russian propaganda and fake news. The Sundance Film Festival begins January 18th. Check out the complete lost of films here. For tickets, click here.
