Joe Lynch Unleashes Mayhem
Joe Lynch doesn't make introspective films. He makes movies about inbred hillbillies (Wrong Turn 2: Dead End), and crazed gangs (Everly). So he's as surprised as anyone that Mayhem, his new insanity burst about corporate culture gone bug-eyed haywire, is his most personal story.

SXSW Film Review: Give Me Future
Few people would categorize Major Lazer’s style of rump-thumping global EDM as protest music, but Give Me Future proves that even the most fist-pumping party tunes become political when they reach the shores of Cuba.
