Little Moments Make Sundance Magical

The Sundance Film Festival winds down this weekend. It has been a great festival – plenty of razzle-dazzle – and some very good films.

The LA Times ran this interesting précis, which illuminates the core of the Sundance experience:

“It's really the little moments that make a place like the Sundance Film Festival so magical. You're walking down the street minding your own business and suddenly a burly man in a big down parka on a cellphone comes striding toward you. He's dropping the F-bomb over and over into the ear of whatever poor guy is on the other end.

”Just as you begin to think you are witnessing a truly ugly moment in the history of Hollywood thuggishness, you realize: Hey, that guy's Harvey Weinstein, the poster boy for brutish behavior. And you can die happy now. Your Sundance experience is complete.”
