SXSW Film Review: Sneakerheadz
When you see kids and adults camped out in a line for two days, they’re probably not in front of a record store these days.

SXSW Film Review: Midnight Shorts
The short film may be the perfect medium for horror: A concise, razor-keen concept can slash and burn, and the fact that the audience does not spend feature-length time with the characters means less emotional time when they are dispatched.

SXSW Film Review: They Will Have to Kill Us First
Johanna Schwartz’s documentary on the plight of Malian musicians forced to flee their homes after the fall of neighboring Libya’s Muammar Gaddafi sparked a bloody jihadist uprising in their own country is flat-out mesmerizing.
