Why it's a must see: A number of Sundance titles pop up on the list, and this one went over big in Park City. The critically acclaimed "Dope" is in part a love letter to 90s aesthetic obsessives (*raises hand*). But it registered outside of the superficial in Utah as well, winning an editing prize and capturing the hearts of many while announcing the arrival of a promising talent in star Shameik Moore.
