Despite being a native Utahan, I’ve never been to Sundance (I’ve never been downhill skiing, either). But a friend had an extra ticket this year, so last night I got to see The Ledge. It was a thriller/love story/exploration of faith and it was really good–but I liked the Q&A with the writer/director Matthew Chapman most of all.

You can get a taste of him in the video linked to above, but he was just so smart and insightful and logical, talking about how the world needs “mercy more than condemnation.” Sigh–rational humanists do it for me every time.

Also, if you want to stick out at Sundance, just wear a color. Especially and orange coat.
