With a few weeks’ perspective (and a whole lot of sleep) on our side after the intense 10 days that was SXSW 2011, I asked DN friend Andrew Johnson, host of MovieChatter, to join me for a wrap up session of the films that left a lasting impression.
With a combined viewing count of 60+ films there was no way we could discuss everything we saw. Instead think of this as a highlights reel in which we discuss: Sound it Out, Source Code, Our Time Will Come, Natural Selection, The Divide, Kill List, Attack the Block, Green, Inside America, Turkey Bowl, My Sucky Teen Romance, Hobo with a Shotgun, Hesher, Ceromony, Dragonslayer, Attenberg, Bad Fever & Umshini Wam.
MarBelle has a strange compulsion to watch as many films as he can get his hands on and find jobs that give him a legitimate excuse to drill filmmakers about their work. Directors Notes is the latest incarnation of this disorder and so much cheaper than film school. Twitter: @MarBelle
