+Michael Haneke's re-make of his own Funny Games being marketed as a straight horror movie and being included in the midnight selections.
Ones to watch:
+High concept, low budget-y goodness in the form of Sleep Dealer. "A social commentary-infused sci-fier about three strangers who attempt to break through future technological barriers to connect in a world of closed borders and virtual labor."
+Be Like the Others, an Iranian documentary about six transgender people... IN IRAN!
+Stranded: I've Come From a Plane Crashed on the Mountains. Ever since Errol Morris' First Person series I'm fascinated with plane crash survivors.
+Downloading Nancy, a Jane Austen Book Club cast reunion with Maria Bello and Amy Brenneman.
+The Deal, a Canadian comedy about a Black Muslim action film star bringing William H. Macy and LL Cool J together at last.
+Docs about a senior citizen choir who perform Sonic Youth songs (Youth@Heart), homeless people playing soccer (Kicking It) and U2 in 3-d (U2-3d)!
+A re-make of A Raisin in the Sun starring Phylicia Rashad and Puff Daddy!
+The Black List looks a little 'a very special Dateline-ish' but Elvis Mitchell = instant win.
