Sundance Film Festival 2013

<br>The 2013 edition of the Sundance Film Festival opened Thursday night, but if you think a consensus has formed about the nature of this year's event, you would be wrong.

While the Hollywood Reporter said the main story is a lineup "heavy on big names from the film and television worlds," Daily Variety provocatively insisted "Sex Drives 'Dance: Park City Slate Stocked With Frisky Fare."

This paper has noted that in the competition, fully half of the narrative features were made by women, while the New York Times claimed that the Utah festival, "known for championing dark and inscrutable films, has unveiled an unusually accessible -- and sellable -- competition lineup."
