Sundance 2011 is fully underway. Here's what's been happening since the fest kicked off yesterday.
The above image sees CNN's Brooke Anderson interviewing Morgan Spurlock. Elizabeth Olsen is the IT Girl of Sundance without any of her sisters' drama.
This roundup offers up all of our pre-fest coverage.
Christopher Campbell really loved 'Project Nim,' a look at the '70s chimp who was taught sign language. He wrote: "I have no problem admitting, mere weeks into the year, that 'Project Nim' will be among my top three documentaries of 2011, if not my very favorite. And if I stand corrected in twelve months, I will graciously admit a glorious wrong, because if there are any non-fiction films as good if not better ahead, I'm going to be a very happy documentary fan."
Jenni Miller, meanwhile, wasn't all that impressed with the creepy flick 'Silent House': " a horror flick whose main point of interest is that it was filmed in one continuous shot. ... 'House' looks and feels more artsy than your typical midnight fare, but its hollow characters and unraveling plot quickly undermine a promising premise."
And Erik Davis caught the opening night shorts program, noting that though the Beastie Boys' offering was fun, "Lake Bell's 'Worst Enemy' was our personal favorite short of the night. ... "Watkins completely nails the role, to the point where you really want to see more of the character."
The biggest story of the first day: younger Olsen sibling Elizabeth Olsen is on fire with two films in the fest -- 'Silent House' and 'Martha Marcy May Marlene.'
