SXSW Film Review: Fast Color
Gugu Mbatha-Raw is a powerhouse – a stunning actress who should be a household name at this point due to her magnificent work in Belle, Beyond the Lights, and Black Mirror’s buzziest episode, “San Junipero.” Her presence is commanding, and in Julia Hart’s arthouse superhero film Fast Color she’s a beacon to behold.

SXSW Film Review: Wild Nights With Emily
Director Madeleine Olnek’s portrayal of the life of Emily Dickinson in Wild Nights With Emily comedically deflates portrayals of the poet as a tortured recluse and delivers an earnest perspective into her life as an eclectic, misunderstood poet.

SXSW Film Review: Lean on Pete
The plot of director Andrew Haigh’s newest melancholy tale sounds, on the face of it, cut from pure cheese. Don’t be fooled. Lean on Pete is a marvel of neo-realistic filmmaking, a trenchant and melancholy portrait of a 15-year-old boy seemingly destined to get the wrong end of the stick almost every time.

SXSW Film Review: Final Portrait
You know what I’m a sucker for? Films about the creative process. No matter the object being created – a painting, a film, or a fruit tart – the appeal of watching someone pull something out of the ether of their imagination is endlessly fascinating to me.
