It’s been a long time since I’ve been inside SXSW — four years, in fact, when I lived in Austin. SXSW really sets itself apart from others with its diversity in film. Here’s where you’ll see big studio movies, as well as little indies that would forever be in the shadows if it weren’t for festivals like SXSW. The latter is why I love attending these things called film festivals — discovery. Here are some films I know very little about but am jazzed to see. - Chase Whale
One & Two
One & Two is this year’s festival movie I’m going to walk in blind. That’s film critic-speak for “don’t know shit about it.” What I do know is it is s co-writer and director Andrew Droz Palermo's first feature Rich Hill shook me to the bone when I saw it at Sundance some years back. This is his second feature, first narrative and I’m ready to see how much flair he brings to fiction that he banged out with non-fiction. - Chase Whale
