Sundance Film Festival

The 2006 Sundance Film Festival has begun and there are a gaggle of films for you to watch online as they premiere over the next week or so.  You know I like to blog about indie films and festivals.  One short documentary I watched tonight is called "Ha Ha Ha America."

Since I know many of you read my blog for political commentary and satire, I highly recommend you spend 17 minutes watching this short.  It'll sum up a year's worth of watching CNN's Lou Dobbs and save you 15,583 minutes of your life.

"Ha Ha Ha America" is a fast moving montage film with captions and a very cool soundtrack, in my humble opinion.  If you watch this film and don't get why so many Americans are not happy with the Bush Administration on so many levels, you should look in the mirror and tell yourself, "I'm glad I took that day off of work at Walmart to vote for my hero, George W. Bush."  However, if you're not totally brainwashed, but don't usually have an interest in geopolitics and international trade, it might open your mind to some of these issues like a ballpeen hammer to your forehead.

If you check out the Sundance Film Festival website and have some comments to make about other films available for us online, please feel free to make a comment, and share your thoughts.  For your convenience and courtesy of the Internet Movie Database (IMDb), here is a list of films showing at Sundance 2006 with links to IMDb pages:

Really enjoyed Ha Ha America -- awesome soundtrack, agreed. I loved Divorce Lemonade too ... sad and funny at the same time. Thanks, J.

NP, G-funk. You rawk, babe.

Take a gander at "BugCrush" on Sundance. It's a creepy Sci-Fi Brokeback Mountain. Heh.
