As I speak, I am now sitting in my hotel room in Park City, Utah waiting for the Sundance festivities to begin (for me, at least). Tomorrow, I will be seeing “Paper Heart” starring Michael Cera and if God is on my side, I will also be able to run into Cera and interview him. Throughout the rest of the week, I plan on seeing “The Informers,” “Spring Breakout,” “Rudo y Cursi,” “Brief Interviews with Hideous Men,” and “Humpday” amongst others. Hopefully, I will snag interviews with the stars and directors along the way.
It’s quite dark out but tomorrow’s daylight will hopefully reveal to me my first sights of the Rocky Mountains. But so far, I’ve driven by a McDonalds and an Olive Garden leading me to believe that the city of the independent film might not be so indie after all.
Side note: I saw “Vicky Cristina Barcelona” today on the plane and I believe that it’s one of the year’s best films. Hopefully, I’ll get a review in of it sometime. Oh yeah, Obama gave some sort of speech today.
