Salt Lake Tribune Film Critic Sean Means has been reviewing films for Utah audiences since July 1993. To celebrate his 20th Anniversary, we’ve asked him to curate a film that he loved and lead a post-screening discussion. Join us to celebrate his contribution to local film culture.
Easily the best movie made in Utah in my 20 years as movie critic at The Salt Lake Tribune. More than that, though, it’s a fascinating and absorbing survival drama, depicting Aron Ralston’s survival and dissecting how his go-for-broke life got him into that predicament in the first place. Credit director Danny Boyle for making a movie that’s surprisingly dynamic considering it’s about a guy literally stuck in the same spot. – Sean Means
