Didn’t actor Robert Redford threaten to move out of the country if President Bush were re-elected in 2004? Huh. He must have had a change of heart.
Anyhow, Bob’s perpetual haughtiness was on display last evening.
The Sundance Film Festival opened on Thursday night with an innovative movie harkening back to Vietnam anti-war protests and a call by actor/activist Robert Redford for an apology by U.S. leaders.
Redford, whose Sundance Institute for independent film backs the annual festival, said in the aftermath of the September 11 attacks he, like many others, showed a "spirit of unity" with President George W. Bush and others who backed the war on terrorism and led invasions of Afghanistan and Iraq.
"We put all our concerns on hold to let the leaders lead," Redford told a packed audience for the opening night documentary film, "Chicago 10."
"I think we're owed a big, massive apology," he added.
So are we…from you, Bob!! After all, we movie goers had to sit through the entire 117 minutes of Indecent Proposal.
