Caught another gem in one of Roger Ebert’s Sundance diaries:
You see some unexpected moviegoers at Sundance. In the audience at “The Night Listener” was Rep. Rahm Emmanuel (D-Ill.), the Democratic strategist: “We have four couples who come to the opening weekend of Sundance every year.” Did he say anything else? Only, “We’ll have another war right before the next election.” He seemed prepared to elaborate, but the lights were doing down and the ushers told us to take our seats.
Emphasis added. I would love to know what representative Emmanuel was referring to. What does he know that the rest of us don’t, and if he’s spilling the beans to Roger Ebert, shouldn’t he let the rest of us know, too?
