Nader v Gore At Sundance

Check out the spirited dispatch about the last days of the Sundance Film Festival in today’s New York Times.

"An Unreasonable Man," about Ralph Nader, and "An Inconvenient Truth,"which features Al Gore "delivering an alarming presentation on global warming," were both entered. Fortunately, as the Times correspondent observes: "The Gore film was in a different category, so the Nader film, which was in competition, could not steal votes from it."
