From the New York Post: "Samuel L. Jackson chains a half-naked Christina Ricci to a radiator, a 12-year-old Dakota Fanning gets raped, Catherine Keener uses Ellen Page as a human ashtray, and worse - much worse.

"Yep, it's time for the Sundance Film Festival, which opens tonight with Robert Redford's celebration of indieworld serving an even greater than usual quota of tabloid-worthy shocking sex and human misery amid the snow and the swag emporiums of Park City, Utah."

It seems Memphis director Craig Brewer's blues gothic Black Snake Moan is already generating lots of controversy. Read the rest of the Post's take.
