Park City ’05, Day 6: Crowd-pleasers

Park City '05, Day 6: Crowd-pleasers

Immediately upon seeing Henry-Alex Rubin & Dana Adam Shapiro’s “Murderball” and Steve Buscemi’s “Lonesome Jim” I imagined each film being a hit here in Park City. “Jim” with its quirky sensibilities and “Murderball” with its inspirational story are bound to connect with crowds. Each film has the look and feel of an indie favorite, reminiscent in ways of “The Station Agent” and “Spellbound” respectively.

The crowds seemed to ease up a bit after a busy Friday and Saturday night in Park City, but you wouldn’t have known that outside Zoom tonight. A long line had gathered for the Cinetic Media party more than 20 minutes before the party began. Outside, some guests waited more than an hour to get in to a party that almost immediately filled to capacity. Bouncers yelled at would-be attendees, though, castigating them for gathering near the door, and giving many a reason to simply move on to another soiree.
