Mud. Not the most appealing name, but one outstanding indie film. Mud is the third feature from Jeff Nichols, director of Shotgun Stories and Take Shelter previously, and stars Matthew McConaughey, as well as two young actors Tye Sheridan and Jacob Lofland.

Calling it "a riff on Mark Twain, and an exploration of the relationships between generations of men. It could be a Tom Waits song" (Russ Fischer on SlashFilm) or a "mesmerizing story to both hear and watch" (Allison Loring on Fsr). The film is also premiering at SXSW this weekend and Mondo commissioned a poster for the event. See it below! Here's the artwork for Mud made by Australian super-duo We Buy Your Kids, originally from Fandango: Mud is screening at SXSW this weekend, »
