‘Wristcutters’ Wins Grand Jury in Gen Art Film Fest

Goran Dukic’s Wristcutters: A Love Story (review part of full Sundance report) took home the $10,000 grand jury feature film award at the 11th annual Gen Art Film Festival Tuesday, according to the Hollywood Reporter. The comic feature about suicidal souls in purgatory, recently featured in competition at the Sundance Film Festival, was one of several prizewinners at the New York fest. The audience award for best feature went to Scott Glosserman’s serial killer mockumentary Behind the Mask: The Rise of Leslie Vernon (review). The next great psycho horror slasher has given a documentary crew exclusive access to his life as he plans his reign of terror over the sleepy town of Glen Echo, all the while deconstructing the conventions and archetypes of the horror genre for them.
