[Sundance ’13 Review] Ryan Digests ‘We Are What We Are’

Sundance Film Festival kicked off this past weekend and one of the first films to play the “Park City At Midnight” portion of the event was Stake Land director Jim Mickle’s We Are What We Are. It’s a remake of Mexican director Jorge Michel Grau’s picture about a family of cannibals that’s been moved from its original setting of Mexico City, to a poor part of the Catskills region in New York State.

Ryan Daley caught a screening of the film at the fest and wrote in with his review. “… this crafty exploration of familial ritual has a lot to say and it says it well. In Mickle’s film, tradition may have the power to bind people together, but if overused or outdated, tradition can also rip people apart.

We Are What We Are has several other Sundance screenings coming up. 1/22/2013 @ 6:00 pm at the Egyptian Theatre, 1/25/2013 @ 11:30 pm at Prospector Square Theatre and 1/26/2013 @ 6:00 pm at Broadway Centre Cinema 6.
