by Kevin Williamson
PARK CITY, Utah -- Robert Redford doesn't view 3D through rose-tinted glasses.
"Horrible film," he says of the first 3D movie he saw during Hollywood's brief flirtation with the format in the 1950s -- complete with a spear that leaped out at the crowd. "But now it's come back 50 years later."
Has it ever. The 3D digitally-rendered Avatar is on track to become the first $2-billion worldwide blockbuster. Add to that its probable Oscar windfall -- over Sundance sleeper Precious, among others -- and it would seem to signal troubling news for the creators of low-budget films that lack the same wow factor. With the industry -- and apparently audiences -- enraptured by spectacle and sensation, what does that mean for the independent cinema Redford cherishes?
