From pandemic-era stories, via portraits of grief, to the serendipitous 1969 trilogy, the Letterboxd crew recaps our favorite films from the first major festival of the year.
A record audience ‘attended’ Sundance this year, despite a stripped-back lineup. While only five films breached the four-star threshold on Letterboxd, plenty more captured our minds and hearts. Our Festiville team scanned your Letterboxd reviews and compared them with our notes to arrive at these seventeen feature-length documentary and narrative picks from Sundance 2021:
Summer of Soul (…Or, When the Revolution Could Not Be Televised), Flee, Taming the Garden, The Most Beautiful Boy in the World, All Light, Everywhere, The Sparks Brothers, The Pink Cloud, Together Together, Hive, On the Count of Three, Censor, CODA, We’re All Going to the World’s Fair, Judas and the Black Messiah, Pleasure, Coming Home in the Dark and The World to Come.
