    SXSW '10 | “World’s Largest” Directors Amy C. Elliott & Elizabeth Donius On Small-Town America

    Amy C. Elliott and Elizabeth Donius’s “World’s Largest” is a road movie with a big ol’ twist: the co-directors visited 58 of the “world’s largest [insert random object here]” tourist traps that live in small towns throughout the U.S. “Odd, funny and sometimes beautiful, the statues stand as testaments to the uniqueness and importance - the largeness - that all people feel, and need to feel, about their communities and their own existence. World’s Largest profiles Soap Lake, Washington’s five-year struggle to build the World’s Largest Lava Lamp. By documenting these roadside attractions, World’s Largest captures the changing, perhaps even va...

    For Your Consideration: Predicting The Animated, Foreign & Doc Feature Winners

    Before next week's final pre-Oscar column that intends to run down each and every category for your prognosticatory pleasure, this very last category-by-category batch edition of "For Your Consideration" takes on the three non-Best Picture best pictures, where the alleged best in animation, documentary, and foreign filmmaking fight for the Academy's often debated stamp of excellence.

A third child, Todd, will waft in and out of conversation and the movie itself. Shot in perfunctory home video style with the occasional Big Sky Country visual...
