SXSW Film Review: She's the Best Thing in It
If Ron Nyswaner had limited his debut doc to just celebrating the American acting treasure that is Mary Louise Wilson, that alone would be a joy and well worth seeing. Character actors of her gifts and skills are rare and getting rarer, and he deftly conveys Wilson's love of her art and mastery of it.

VEEP Speaks
Julia Louis-Dreyfus is the most Emmy-awarded TV actress in history, with lead actress trophies for each of her major roles, on Seinfeld, The New Adventures of Old Christine, and her current HBO project Veep. No surprise, then, that she had the crowd laughing at her Monday SXSW session.

SXSW Film Review: The Look of Silence
This is the companion film to Joshua Oppenheimer’s Oscar-nominated The Act of Killing, which focused, unconventionally, on the unrepentant perpetrators of the mid-Sixties Indonesian genocide where, following a military takeover of the government, a million Indonesians were brutally murdered in a Communist purge by uniformed thugs.

SXSW Film Review: A Space Program
Rarely does a filmmaker openly admit to being a propagandist. But such is the case of Van Neistat, who, working in collaboration with artist Tom Sachs, sent two women to Mars and filmed the whole thing. Well … kind of.

SXSW Film Review: God Bless the Child
When their mother abruptly drives off one morning, five children – ranging from age 1 to 13 – must fend for themselves, uncertain whether she will return. The film follows them through the day, and while that premise might sound a bit bleak, God Bless the Child is really a heartfelt and candid ode to the lazy summer days of childhood.
