The JFF programming is vibrantly eclectic, with over 200 movies from 50 countries. While many are Israeli, others span varied genres, nations, themes and styles. I've experienced the thrill of discovery with two of the selections screened thus far.

I'd be hard-pressed to pick a favorite between Life Itself, Steve James' documentary about the late film critic Roger Ebert, and To Be Takei, by Jennifer Kroot, about the amazingly resilient career of actor George Takei.

While The Company You Keep can't sustain itself as the kind of thriller it's being pitched as, it's still a thoughtful, provocative story about the continuing battle between idealism and cynicism.

It's kind of a weird way for a relationship to start. This great big Irishman falling for a wee small man made out of clay and his silent, long-suffering dog. But that's exactly how Brendan Gleeson wound up working on The Pirates! Band of Misfits.

Brutal -- and brutally funny -- The Guard joins a growing list of darkly witty contemporary Irish gangster movies. It's as amusing as it is occasionally shocking.

Marshall Fine

Three of the four films I saw at Sundance 2011 on Saturday not only fit the bill for 'comedy,' but acquit themselves nicely. And each comes from a different country -- the U.S., Ireland and Norway.
