The festival's over and the swag suites are now closed. PEOPLE Movie Critic Leah Rozen weighs in on the best and worst from this year's Sundance:
Like wine vintages, some years at film festivals are better than others. This year's Sundance Film Festival was by general consensus a lackluster one.
Some 120 features screened during the 10-day festival, which concluded on Saturday (for a complete list of winners, click here). Of these, many highly anticipated commercial entries were washouts, while smaller films that scored with audiences and critics mostly have limited commercial prospects.
Among the biggest disappointments were three films with show business settings and starring big names: What Just Happened?, The Great Buck Howard and The Deal. All three are still seeking distributors.

Forget the Big Buzz. It's all about the Big Brrr this year at the 27th annual Sundance Film Festival, which kicked off in snow-covered Park City, Utah, Thursday.
Thanks to a cold snap, the temperature is below zero at night and barely edges into the teens during the day. Paris Hilton and other Hollywood celebrities planning to make the scene at Sundance should pack their long underwear.
Out of 207 films being shown this year, here's a quick look at five that are generating must-see buzz:
In Bruges: The festival's opener is a comedy about two Irish hit men (Colin Farrell and Brendan Gleeson) stuck in Bruges, a quaint medieval town in Belgium, after an assignment goes wrong. (Opens in theaters Feb. 8.)

Colin Farrell said Tuesday that his 4-year-old son James, who has a rare neuro-genetic disorder called Angelman Syndrome, is making progress – and that father and son will be together at the holidays.
The actor, 31, told PEOPLE at a Cinema Society screening of his film Cassandra's Dream in New York that James's progress is "good" and stressed that the Angelman is a condition, "not a disease."
