The non-geek world may recognize Brit director Gareth Edwards as the man who helmed the second-best Star Wars movie ever made – George Lucas’ original film being the obvious first – but there was a time when he wondered if he was wasting his life on his childhood dream of being a film director.

SXSW Film Review: The Untold Tales of Armistead Maupin
There is nothing visually notable or narratively inspired in The Untold Tales of Armistead Maupin, but those who see the nonfiction feature in theatres are unlikely to notice this, as this love letter to the American author is pre-sold to Maupin’s international fan base.

SXSW Film Review: Walk With Me

SXSW Film Review: A Critically Endangered Species
Maya Dardel (Lena Olin) is about to die. She has chosen to die, in fact. Her living corpse has rotted away long enough, and the vultures are circling.
