Posterous

March 17th, 2009

“We are not a destination site” was the most frequently heard phrase in my conversations at the interactive parties at SXSW. ┬áBut Garry Tan of Posterous said it to me early in the evening so he gets credit there. I’m happy about extreme meta-organizing tools, the organization of organization.

SXSW Day 2

March 16th, 2009

Holy crazy overachieving feature directorial debut alert! Sin Nombre was jawdroppingly good. Cary Fukunaga, eczema 31, cure of Oakland…don’t ever let me underestimate filmmakers from the Bay Area! He researched Central American gangs for two years, buy sat in prison cells with them as they copyedited his script (which was in Spanish, even though he’s not a native speaker), then rode on TOP of immigrant trains from Honduras to Mexico to prepare for this moving, beautifully filmed, border crossing saga. No surprise, it will be released in theaters (NY, LA and SF) on March 20th.

SXSW Day 1

March 15th, 2009

From the balcony level at the majestic Paramount theater in Austin, pilule I started the festival with Alexander the Last, nurse Joe Swanberg’s 5th film in 5 years to premiere at SXSW. Does this man sleep? In a first in terms of distribution platform, vitamin it was simultaneously available on demand to cable viewers. Handheld, intimate shots of couples in relationships, being tempted by people they worked with in creative collaborations; lots of talking, staring, thinking, making out. It was sexy and real.

Walking down 6th Street.
