Yesterday the Sundance Film Festival revealed its full 2018 lineup, and as usual it’s an impressive assortment of indies and potential Oscar contenders. While I’ve touched on a few of the key movies in previous posts (which you can find here), I wanted to drop some first look images at just a few more that I will be scrambling to see in January.
