“Depictions of penises, then, provoke extremely mixed emotions. They are the totem of potency but also anxiety – one man feels great power in his penis while another feels terrible passivity, and it’s these two emotions that are almost always evoked by male nudity on the screen.”

“Strange Magic is a jaw-droppingly terrible animated musical that mismatches George Lucas’ inane story about a pair of fairy princesses to an oddball selection of the Star Wars creator’s favorite pop tunes.”

Redford Remarks At Sundance Opener

Thursday, January 22nd, 2015

“We brought it here in the mountains because they would be free, they would feel like there’s a safe place outside of where the action is, so to speak. We believe in diversity, and freedom of expression is very much fundamental to us. And that’s how it is with the films. You’ll see a lot of films here that are going to upset other people, but that’s okay. It’s diversity.”
Redford Remarks At Sundance Opener

“This isn’t the defining film of the Iraq War. After nearly a quarter century of war and occupation in Iraq, we still haven’t seen that film. I’m beginning to think we’re incapable of producing a film of that magnitude, one that would explore the civilian experience of war, one that might begin to approach so vast and profound a repository of knowledge. If such a film ever arrives, it’ll be made by Iraqi filmmakers a decade or more from now, and it’ll be little known or viewed, if at all, on our shores.”
