Redford Celebrates Kerry Victory at Sundance 2009

PARK CITY, Utah, 2009-01-17 — Our intrepid movie critic, Jack Palethorpe, ventured out to Utah to attend the 2009 Sundance Film Festival. Here is his report.

On my plane to Park City, I sat in the seat behind Spike Lee, whom I did not recognize until he donned his baseball cap. After we landed, I saw him hugging an old guy who looked just like Bernie Madoff, until I recognized the guy as Robert De Niro! He has aged terribly and is a man of few words " like none! He just hugged Spike, and grimaced. What an actor!

At the official opening, Robert Redford, looking extremely wrinkled and wearing a French beret, celebrated the end of the Bush era.

"Change is in the air," he said. Unfortunately, the Alzheimer's-ridden Redford thought it was the coming of the Kerry era.

"If John is French," said Redford, "then so am I."

With that flourish, Sundance opened with an Australian claymation film, Max and Mary, featuring the voices of Philip Seymour Hoffman and Toni Collette playing a New York man clay figure with Aspergers disease and a dysfunctional, spinterish Australian woman clay figure " a real downer. So much for the audacity of hope!

I saw Jim Carrey, Kevin Bacon, Pierce Brosnan, Elijah Wood and Andie MacDowell. Carrey is naturally funny, Bacon naturally boyish, Brosnan naturally charming, Wood naturally short, and McDowell naturally sexy.
