"If you'll pardon the bluntness,I am still convinced that Richard Kelly was masturbating the entire time he was filming this movie."-PoliVamp

"Love this write-up,and love Southland Tales in all its loopy glory."-Ben1283

"I saw this in the theater with a friend who (like me) has a very high tolerance for obscure,messy film.We both left the screening saying,'What the hell WAS that?' "- RV

Abe's SXSW Wrap: Top Ten + Best Performances

by Abe Fried-Tanzer

Jay Duplass and Tatiana Maslany star in the romantic drama "Pink Wall"

TheSXSWFilm Festival is officially over,and the official winners have all been announced.I managed to catch 34 titles this year,but just three of them won prizes:Alice,the story of a mother who becomes an escort after learning her husband spent all their money on them (which just barely missed my top 10 best of the fest),the comedyYes,God,Yesand the docRunning with Beto,which was cool to see with an audience of Texas liberals.

Nathaniel likes us to do "jury of one"wrap-ups if we see a lot of festival films so here are my picks for the best in multiple categories,including acting honors...

NYFF: Voilà..."The Walk"

Nathaniel reporting from NYFF 53 though this movie is now in IMAX theaters and next week wide for all y'all.This piece was original published in a shorter version in my column @ Towleroad

The Walkbegins in mid air with a jaunty circus-like score from composerAlan Silvestriaccompanying the clouds.Our birds-eye view is quickly revealed as just above Manhattan,perched on no less a tourist icon than the Statue of Liberty.That we're looking at something purely presentational is abundantly clear as crinkly-eyedJoseph Gordon-Levittmakes his first appearance,smiling and speaking directly to the camera.And he speaks with a cartoon French accent to boot.(To be fair to JGL, many real French people sound like cartoon people when they speak English.This is meant as a compliment because who doesn't love cartoons and/or French accents?).What's more,at least to these only super-marginally trained ears (I watcha lotof French movies and I took French in high school –that's the extent of it!) JGL'sactualFrench sounds impeccable in his subtitled scenes with French co-stars.

Joseph Gordon-Levitt's adorableness can be so distracting?Is that why filmmakers keep trying to make him look not so much like Joseph Gordon-Levitt?We already know he can sing / dance / act and in this film he juggles and wirewalks and speaks fluent French.Is there anything he can't do?

Joseph Gordon-Levitt's adorableness can be so distracting!Let's get back on topic...

Iron Podcast

Bet you thought we were done talking aboutIron Man Three.Nope.The guys atPanel Culture,a comic book podcast so good it makes me want to read comics again,invited me to talk about Marvel's latest billion dollar grosser and I gladly obliged.Some of you will have even talked to Owen,the host,in the comments right here at TFE so you know he's good people.

me,my iron man three(d) glasses and the iron man sketch i doodled on my iphone waiting for the movie to start

While the subject is mostly the Iron Man franchise we also stray into other Marvel flicks as well asX-Menand personal comic-book lore.(The first I ever remember holding in my hands --  and I held it as it were holy scrit - was that mutant mag) Even if you aredonewith Tony & Pepper and don't wanna hear me yammer about them,you should definitelygive other episodes of Panel Culture a listenif you're at all into comic books.
