Hit the rewind button to the 2003 Sundance Film Festival. It wasn’t exactly a magical year for movies, with hits like “X2: X-Men United” and “Finding Nemo” balanced by the latter two “Matrix” movies, “Terminator 3” and the third “Lord of the Rings” movie (let’s face it– that one kind of drags on a bit). There was also “Masked and Anonymous,” a little independent film written by and starring Bob Dylan and an ensemble cast that included, among others, Penelope Cruz. It wasn’t very good. Ebert himself gave it only half a star. But he appreciated the players enough to snap this photo.
