NEW YORK (AP) _ The Sundance Film Festival is too intense for Robert Redford, who says he wasn't around for all of it this year.

``To the outside world, it's a big fat market where you have people like Paris Hilton going to parties. Now, she doesn't have anything to do with anything. I think the festival is close to being out of control,'' the festival's creator told Newsweek.

This month, Redford can be heard providing commentary on a two-disc edition of the remastered DVD for ``All the President's Men.''

When asked if his ``movie-star-ness'' kept him from being taken seriously, he said it was difficult.

``You work hard to move away from it, and you're only partly successful. If I go up there to speak about an issue, they're playing ``The Sting.''
