COUNTDOWN TO ZERO, from producer, Lawrence Bender (producer of Quentin Tarantino’s early films and  INCONVENIENT TRUTH) is easily the scariest film at Sundance.  It’s about nuclear proliferation and it is riveting. -Jed

Monday at Sundance

John Rothman is all over Park City. He’s the star of an award-winning short called NEW MEDIA, he was thanked in the end credits of happythankyoumoreplease, and we’ve been sharing notes about various films via phone. We both loved BHUTTO and PLEASE GIVE. But, he’s skiing now and leaves tomorrow morning so we won’t actually see each other. Very Sundance.

I’m about to see the premiere of COUNTDOWN TO ZERO the newest film from Participant Media, who also did SYRIANA and INCONVENIENT TRUTH among others.  – Jed
