Sundance 2010: RT's 10 Most Anticipated Movies
We pick the handful of features you simply can't afford to miss.
The Killer Inside Me - The hardboiled crime novels of Jim Thompson have had a tough time translating to film, with only Stephen Frears' The Grifters coming close to his dark and sleazy stylings. Filmed once before with Stacy Keach, The Killer Inside Me is perhaps Thompson's best known book, telling the story of a seemingly innocuous smalltown sheriff who hides a psychopathic secret. For Michael Winterbottom's adaptation, set in a shimmering 50s-style West Texas, The Assassination Of Jesse James star Casey Affleck plays the sadistic, two-faced sheriff and Kate Hudson and Jessica Alba play the broads. Meanwhile, for support, you can't ask for better character players than Ned Beatty, Bill Pullman and Elias Koteas.
