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."

and collectively the can’t muster more than a single digit IQ and continue to get the same results by using a digger where there ain’t no dirt.
STICK TO ACTING, Rob
One of my favorite scenes from that movie is when Paul Newman looks at Redford and says, “Think you put out enough bulls%$# there, Sundance?”
If this is what being wealthy does to you, I will stay poor.
No Fool Like An Old Fool.
So admission is free, and anyone can occupy any seat at the festival without a ticket? Anyone can eat any of the catered food at no charge? Signed collector’s edition box set DVD’s of every movie at the festival will be given to everyone who shows up, free of charge? And afterward, all of your student loans will be paid off and you’ll be able to get an entry level $100,000 a year job with a degree in Feminist Studies? That is one awesome film festival. Makes that “Burning Man” thing seem like a bunch of corporate sellouts.
Now, what would that group have in common with actors?
My sister rents out her Park City home for $5K per week during the Sundance Film Festival, no doubt to a 99%er.
As they fly in their private jets from one home to another while wearing their designer clothing all the while claiming they can relate to the forgotten.....it seems to me when Hollywood discovers a new place to play the “forgotten” have to move out because life is no longer affordable.....
If that happened, the 99% would be locked up so quick we’d never even know they were ever there in the first place.
What a phony.
Not too bright, and not a good actor, either. Sure, he’s had some great roles— but none of them required acting. He is always the same character in every movie he’s ever done. Same voice. Same swagger. Same signature smile/smirk. Same person, just different costumes.
..Redford has been a major funder of leftwing filmmakers for decades. He provided seed money to help Michael Moore get started. His Sundance Institute, Sundance Film Festival, Sundance Cable Channel and Sundance Documentary Fund all specialize in promoting far-left films and programming.
What is Redford smoking?
There are a few gems, but many are not that good. They will not appeal to the masses. More people are going to see Twilight or Contraband instead.
