Which 10 Festival-Defining Films Are We Most Excited to See at Sundance?

The 2014 Sundance Film Festival is well underway and as usual, is doing some pretty great things for films we've all been dying to see. From giving underdogs some much-needed confidence to creating serious Oscar buzz for others, this is definitely the one film event that's at the top of every movie lover's bucket list. Ever since it first hit the scene in 1978, helped by Robert Redford's involvement, Sundance put Park City, Utah on the cultural map and has launched the careers of some of the industry's top filmmakers. Sometimes a movie does so well, either in terms of box office sales later on or it ends up a cult favorite, it becomes a Sundance champion and the filmmakers can closely associate their success with the festival. Where would Clerks be without Sundance? Reservoir Dogs? What about Pi or Once? It's small brilliant gems like these that have come to define the festival.

Since the festival runs until January 26, we have a few more days until we get the full picture, but I've always had a hard time waiting. So, let's check out some of my picks for the most exciting films and maybe one of them will become synonymous with Sundance.
