Actors and auteurs, critics and programmers gathered for Telluride's annual group photo yesterday outside the Sheridan Opera House, but Alexander Payne nearly missed his call time for the photo. He rushed over right after the rousing Saturday morning screening of his latest, "The Descendants," joining Lynne Ramsay right up front nearly George Clooney and Tilda Swinton as official photographers and local fans alike snapped shots on cameras and cell phones. "The Descendants" played big in Telluride yesterday, stirring a lenghty standing ovation. More on that movie soon.

    Eugene, now here's a big wanker......Sundance thieves, scammers, corrupt, from all of their programmers, to the board of directors, they steal money by hiring college students to watch the 10,000 film submissions, while the programmers fly around the world picking up films from other festivals, they scam people using Without a Box another corrupt on-line scam, which has over 7000 festivals, some are not even existent or legit, they also ask for fees, all of this film festival noise is nothing but a big scam on vanity driven artists, who make crap films. When a true original no budget, no camera crew, film called Jesus of Malibu was requesting to be considered and simply wanted to understand how a "film trilogy" could be submitted to Sundance, their only answer was " we aren't interested" and the media press, and marketing concepts for the film was stolen and used for Kevin Smiths piece of crap Red State. Sundance uses ideas, steals scripts, spends money on excess parties, the people who attend are pathetic rich snobs who are more interested in catching a glimpse of Paris Hilton than supporting films. John Copper is a fraud, and so are the rest who don't stand up for anything, because they are fear mongering talentless people who fear their meaningless jobs, Sundance does not support Independent Filmmaking, because if they knew what a "true meaningful, and profound film Jesus of Malibu is, which is obvious by the film trailers and support it has received from artist, musicians, designers, Nationally and Internationally; then they would have reached out and someone would have apologized and fired John Cooper who has driven Sundance into the ground, they are corrupt and we will see that everyone will know this, and that the film JESUS OF MALIBU was never submitted, it was never given the chance, not one person called, wrote, e-mailed, to answer a simple question, they want your money and thats all, and THEY DON'T WATCH THE FILMS, PERIOD! Anyone supporting this corrupt Institute that CLOSES THE DOOR, on any real independent film, is also a part of the "problem" and they also are a worthless vanity driven pathetic " I want a trophy" sheeple, Jesus of Malibu is the most powerful film in the world because It doesn't give a crap what anyone thinks, you can all go fuck yourselves, you, the world, the media, the arts, film sites, magazines, film schools, writers, indy directors, are nothing but a bunch of phony nothings, that won't change a thing in the world or humanity, we have a purpose, a message and profound meaning, and you fear us, and are chicken shit nothings who can't confront Jesus of Malibu because 'truth" gets right in your face doesn't it?
    Where is ONE of you? ONE? Hello? Didn't think so, not one of you has any balls, any integrity, any virtue, and character, heres Jesus of Malibu's character, and not a phony ass Tarantino one, "the world is full of lies, and you the people are included, liars, thieves, we are "original" because we say, fuck you, fuck you all".
    Jesus of Malibu stands for Integrity, Ballance, Respect, Virtue, Simplicity, and Justice it's not just a simple trite scripted manufactured "blue print" of everything that has been done before, and it is true honest and real in it's vision" to uncover the LIES and seek justice, not through teachings, religion, but common sense, Let your pigs wallow in the mire, you don't deserve Jesus of Malibu, but you deserve what your getting, EXSPOSED, so fuck you, everyone of you.
