10 SXSW Movies We Can’t Wait To See

You won’t hear as much about it, what with the president showing up and the high-profile music shows and the tech people going insane, but there’s this whole film festival happening at SXSW, and it’s reliably fabulous. (And that’s not just because of the barbecue and breakfast tacos. Though they don’t hurt!) Looser than Sundance or Toronto, thanks in no small part to the generally genial vibe of the city – as well as the lack of press and industry screenings, meaning critics see every movie with an enthusiastic festival crowd – it’s become a more desirable debut spot for comedies, genre pieces, and daring indies. Here are a few of the movies we’re looking forward to most.
