The Sundance Institute has released the list of movies that will play at the 2008 Sundance Film Festival. Dramatic competition entrants include the awaited big-screen version of Michael Chabon’s The Mysteries of Pittsburgh, from filmmaker Rawson Marshall Thurber (Dodgeball: A True Underdog Story) and starring Sienna Miller, Peter Sarsgaard, and Nick Nolte, and an adaptation of Chuck Palahniuk’s novel Choke, directed by actor Clark Gregg (The New Adventures of Old Christine) and starring Sam Rockwell and Anjelica Huston. Documentaries cover the usual assortment of topical fare (films about New Orleans, slavery, war-torn Africa, and steroids) and personality profiles (Hunter S. Thompson, Patti Smith, and Roman Polanski). In total, 121 movies from 25 countries were selected from 3,624 submissions — the biggest number ever. The festival runs from January 17-27 in Park City and other locations in Utah. The full Sundance slate can be found on Sundance.org.
