SXSW Days 1-3
Saturday: Refreshed and ready to go, passing our EA cards like crazy, and by that I mean plastering them on every wall and lightpost, Dan gave one to a cracked out homeless lady along with a dollar, and Givani gets the gold star for most passed out, (by handing out all the guys who hit on her).
Films we saw today:
*Max & Grace - Dark comedy by this first time director, great ensemble cast. Enjoyable.
*Cavite - Incredible film shot mostly in the Phillipines. Tense thriller that was able to capture the culture, poverty, and roots of terrorism.
*Enron: The Smartest Guys in The Room - Absolutely incredible documentary. Beautifully shot, well edited, great drama. The amount of emotion it was able to bring out of the crowd was incredible. It really made you hate corporate america and the free market even more, and do something I didn't think was possible, make Gray Davis look decent. Amazing.
*Jesus is Magic: Sarah Silverman's standup, brutally funny, just no holds barred, she's not afraid of touching any subject. We have some good pics of Wendy and Lara with Jimmy Kimmel, Sarah Silverman and Brian Posehn as soon as I get them off my camera. Good times.
Talked with Adam Schwartz, one of the writers of My Big Fat Independent Movie for a while, good guy, shamelessly passed our cards out to him. Went over to 6th street to hit the bars, got our drink on and are now passing out one by one in the hotel. More to come.
