It’s a busy couple of weeks for me, as I currently am attending the Miami International Film Festival and will be joining up with the rest of the blogsophere in Austin for SXSW come Monday. I should have some coverage from both events here on Spout, as well, but I’d also like to direct your attention to off-Spout content I’m doing. As usual, my concentration at festivals is documentary, of which Miami and SXSW each is packed with great selections. At the moment, I have a few reviews over at my strictly doc blog Nothing But the Doc (So Help Me Blog). Here are links to those:
“Magic Trip” (pictured above)
Stay tuned for more over there and here.
As for SXSW stuff, I’ve posted one double review here at Spout, of “Hesher” and “Super,” but I might as well also link back to some stuff playing at the festival over the next week and a half, all highly recommended:
Other recommended films seen prior to SXSW (and not reviewed): “The Catechism Cataclysm”; “Armadillo”; “Being Elmo: A Puppeteer’s Journey”; “Cave of Forgotten Dreams”; “TABLOID”; “Senna” and the documentary short “Satan Since 2003.”
One last film I saw previously, which I didn’t like but which others very much do and so I recommend on principle of letting you make up your own mind:
Finally, since we love short films here at Spout, and hope you do too, here is a link to my latest shorts column over at Cinematical, which features 10 Irish or Irish-themed movies you can watch embedded into that post:
