"There are too many people who come to the festival to leverage their own self-interest."

Oh you mean like every single person there? Christ, Redford, your film festival has been a joke for so long, South Park made fun of it in Season 2!

Could it be that Paris Hilton and her entourage of swag grabbing sycophants actually are being such incredibly disruptive assholes that they deserve to be called out for it? I, for one, would not be surprised. Hilton is one of the biggest attention whores on the planet, after all. Since Redford has singled her out for her behavior (out of all the celebrities and attention whores that attend Sundance) I would give him the benefit of the doubt. You cannot seriously question Redford's sincerity or his valuable contributions to the movie industry.

dittybopper: out-acted by the trees behind him in "Jeremiah Johnson"


If you want to survive in the mountains, it's best to let the trees out act you.
Hide in plain sight.

He doesn't want to see his fest turned into a burning man (BM) before he's passed on.

CSB - Went to Sundance a few years ago with my then BF, and it was a surreal experience. We manged to score this AMAZING condo to rent on Main Street, would call in late and get these unreal reservations...got a welcome basket delivered to our door, as well as invites to parties/screenings that we had no clue how we managed to hit those radars...I couldn't understand what people were saying Sundance would be a pain in the ass.

Now is probably when I should mention that my BF's legal name is also that of a well known star and producer. (last name is spelled one letter differently, but otherwise, same thing.) We figured out that people must be thinking he was THAT guy, and not dull old VV from the midwest. It was awesome watching people's faces when we'd show up for the reservations, whipping out the ID, and they'd be all crestfallen that we weren't THAT guy and his date.

I have mad love for RR and all, but he's kidding no one if the thinks the whole celebrity watching thing isn't a strong draw of Sundance now. And, given that we were getting thrown invites/gifties just on the name alone, it certainly seems like Sundance, as an institute, didn't mind what they assumed would be publicity from a 'famous' attendee.

/Much prefer SxSW - warmer, better food, and much easier locations to get to, film-wise. Even if it is in Texas.

Redford still has more coolness and credibility than 99-percent of Hollywood.

I generally like Robert Redford... i'm not a Liberal, but i respect the guy who really 'believes' in his causes... He knows the facts, and comes to his own conclusions... He's not just a Liberal because its trendy. And then he puts those ideals in his work in hopes of educating the rest of us. I don't claim to know everything, and so if someone is going to preach to me whats wrong with our country, i don't mind hearing it from someone like Redford

I liked that movie and others like it, but your post cracked me the hell up.

Oh, I love that movie. Just watched it the other day. And other than a couple of other minor issues related to the guns*, his acting is the worse part of it.

*A .30 caliber Hawken didn't exist, to my knowledge, and it would have been a squirrel rifle if it did. Also, I shoot a larger caliber gun than Hatchet Jack's gun (mine is a .54 caliber, bigger than a .50), and they don't kick like that.


oooohhh loooookkkk......gun nuts givin each other a handy in the Redford thread...
riiight on guys...

"my Baby Killer 9000 is a 29.8 caliber and that's almost a rifle...let me go on about it in the thread here so my gun fetish gets noticed.."

If you can find a room, the week of Sundance is the best time to go skiing there. The slopes are empty.

Yeah...not a fan of Brit by any stretch of the imagination. But if she wants to go party in Utah there's nothing ol' man Redford can do about it.

I find it ironic that Robert Redford, the man who was out-acted by the trees behind him in "Jeremiah Johnson", is knocking Paris Hilton for what he is known for: A pretty face, but not much acting ability in his youth.
