Amid Sundance's important documentary statements, cinematic art, auteurial triumphs and general star sniffing, there appears to be a whole lot of partying going on.
Whoda thought, right?
In fact, judging from the Park City Police blotter for last night, the festival is one big blow out.
-- Park Avenue: A suspect is stopped for a traffic violation and winds up being booked for DUI.
-- Transit Center: A man is arrested and busted for "intoxication and possession of marijuana and paraphernalia."
-- Sky Lodge: Classy joint no? Security found "an unconscious woman in the women's bathroom." She had no idea where she was staying. "Medical responded but did not conduct patient care, as it obvious she was just drunk."
-- Park Avenue: "Male subject passed out in the snow bank." Officers revived him "determined him to be extremely intoxicated and arrested him for public intoxication." They also found marijuana in his pocket.
-- Yarrow Hotel: A man making "inappropriate comments" during screenings was warned to get it together or be barred from all Sundance theaters. The report notes: "Suspect's behavior indicated that he may be suffering from some mild form of mental illness." That diagnosis, of course, applies to about 75 percent of the people at the festival. In fact, it's could be a working definition of "indie filmmaker."
