The 8 Craziest Sundance Films (We Haven't Seen Yet)

The Sundance Film Festival begins this week, and hidden somewhere among the 279 entrants is the next sex, lies, and videotape, The Brothers McMullen, or Precious. And then there are these films, which deserve special accolades for their plot synopses alone, because they sound absolutely insane.

Codependent Lesbian Space Alien Seeks Same
"Three lesbian aliens are sent to Earth. Their mission? To have their hearts broken by earthlings so their overactive emotions won't destroy the ozone of their planet. As the fetching extraterrestrials search for romance on the New York City lesbian dating scene, one finds love with Jane, an eager stationery store clerk who is oblivious to the fact that she's dating an alien. The other two, discovering the neediness of earthling women, connect with each other as they reflect on the beauty of a cheesecake in a revolving dessert case."

The Future
"The Future begins one afternoon on a sofa. Sophie and Jason, a 30-something couple in Los Angeles, realize that in one month their lives are going change radically, when they pick up a stray cat they're adopting. Wanting to take advantage of their fleeting freedom, they quit their jobs, disconnect their Internet, and pursue new interests, all of which literally alter the course of time and space and test their faith in each other and themselves."

Hobo With a Shotgun
"A train rolls into its final stop. From one of the freight cars jumps a weary-eyed transient with dreams of a fresh start in a new town. Instead, he's landed smack-dab in the middle of an urban hellhole, a place where the cops are crooked and the underprivileged masses are treated like insignificant animals. This is a city where crime reigns supreme, and the man pulling the strings is known only as 'The Drake.' Along with his two cold-blooded and sadistic sons, Ivan and Slick, he rules with an iron fist, and nobody dares fuck with The Drake, especially not some hobo."

Three's Company: The Drama
"Our prolonged and increasing exposure to dramatic entertainment shapes our imaginations, our aspirations, and the way we reference our memories and structure the time in our day. How does a television show have such an impact on our lives? In Three's Company: The Drama, James Franco examines the classic TV show, breaking out individual elements of narrative, character, composition, and set design to reconstitute them and create an immersive experience of the story world through which we may consider how this definitive 1970s sitcom connects and organizes our memories."
