Telluride Film Festival
Like cinema itself, the Telluride Film Festival seesaws on a delicate question: How does any movie stand a chance when competing with the most spectacular of nature's beauties? I had never been to the Colorado Rockies before, much less this annual cinematic aerie, so I was primed to be wowed. And wowed I was?as much by the backdrop as by any celluloid nugget glistening before it.
