Attention, One Percenters! You can go home now. The Sundance Film Festival is not ... repeat NOT ... for you. (Except of course our corporate sponsors and super rich celebrity guests. You can stay. As a matter of fact, we'd be lost without you!)
That's the mixed message the was being sent as Robert Redford opened the 34th annual Sundance Film Festival with a populist pitch on Thursday, slamming the government for failing its citizens and talking about how Sundance exists for the forgotten "99 percent."May the FORCE be with you!

Isn't Redford, as a ski resort owner, film festival sponsor and Hollywood power broker, part of the 1%?
I always liked Paul Newman better. For Slap Shot alone.

The dude is officially on another planet. Read the article, even the 1% would have a tough time getting into that place.
"While it was once a small little festival centered around movie screenings, the Sundance film festival is now more synonymous with gifting suites, corporate sponsored parties and free swag for the already wealthy members of Hollywood's elite," Hoffman says. "I dare any of the celebrities attending these parties to sit with the Occupiers on a freezing cold night or to donate their free gifts to members of Occupy Sundance."

He's still trying to catch up to Paul Newman. The problem is Newman had class. Sorry Robbie."The efforts of the government alone will never be enough. In the end the people must choose and the people must help themselves" ~ JFK; from his famous inauguration speech (What Democrats sounded like before today's neo-Liberals hijacked that party)
