The indomitable Dallas International Film Festival kicks off tomorrow night with the gala premiere of Fred Schepisi's Words and Pictures. ScreenAnarchy will have (cowboy) boots on the ground with plenty of coverage from across the city. To jump start our coverage, we've got our Top 12 Must See Picks for you to peruse. There were plenty of great films that just missed the list such as Sundance hits Rich Hill, Obvious Child, The Overnighters, and Locke. Let us know what you're most excited for!

Peter Martin and J Hurtado contributed to this story.

This rough and tumble first feature from Simon and Zeke Hawkins impressed us mightily at Toronto (Marshy's review) with its visceral indie noir caper abilities and great performances by a talented young cast. The film's Texas roots make it a must-see at Dallas. -Ryland Aldrich

I saw The Congress in Dallas when it came through the Alamo Drafthouse's touring film festival. I thought it was a massive letdown.

Couldn't agree more, it is an absolute bore and you'll spend most of the runtime wishing Robin Wright's awful children were dead.

I was primed to love it and instead I could barely make it through. Kind of reminds me of Only God Forgives, though only for that reason.
