We know and love Vera Farmiga, the actress, and now Jenni Miller says we can fall for her directing in 'Higher Ground.' "What's so clear and powerful about 'Higher Ground' and Farmiga's work is that it's entirely earnest but not humorless."

5-Minute Video continues with a chat with 'The Lie's' Joshua Leonard, Jess Weixler and Mark Webber.

Erik Davis also reviewed the film: "Easily digestible and completely satisfying, this is one of the best film's at this year's Sundance festival -- an under-the-radar gem that may hit you in ways you never expected long after the credits roll."

On the downer side, Eric Snider caught 'Homework' and wasn't thrilled: "'Homework' is the first feature by writer-director Gavin Wiesen, and I don't think there's a single fresh idea anywhere in it. No witty dialogue, interesting characters, or amusing scenarios, either. It should have a plain brown label and be called ' Festival Movie.'"

Jenni also caught the unique romance, 'Perfect Sense,' calling it: "Dark and strikingly beautiful, strange and occasionally a touch silly, 'Perfect Sense' is not a perfect movie, but it's worth seeking out for its unique vision that is hard to shake long after you've left its world behind."

And for the latest The Week in Geek, John Gholson explains why Kevin Smith is not your friend.
