SXSW Capsule Reviews: Western, The Ceremony, The Last Man on the Moon, Deep Web

17 March 2015 11:30 AM, PDT | Slackerwood | See recent Slackerwood news »

This is turning out to be a very different year for SXSW, as though last year's tragedy marked a turning point where the city and the SXSW staff realized that things had gotten out of hand with too much going on at once with too little control. The result has been in my own observation that downtown seemed practically dead when I arrived Friday to pick up my badge. Strictly limited permitting for outside events and venues in addition to much of the interactive events being relocated away from the convention center have thinned the crowd to manageable levels, though we will see if that persists as the music portion of the fest kicks into gear.

Movies I've seen:


This documentary by brothers Bill and Turner Ross (who premiered Tchoupitoulas at SXSW 2012) covers 13 months in the border city of Eagle Pass during Chad Foster's last term as mayor. »

Daily | Sundance 2015 | Bill and Turner Ross’s Western

29 January 2015 11:34 AM, PST | Keyframe | See recent Keyframe news »

"Brothers Bill Ross and Turner Ross return to the quick-paced, collage style documentary storytelling we’ve seen previously in Tchoupitoulas and 45365" with Western, "a tale of two cities," writes Monica Castillo at Movie Mezzanine. "One, Eagle Pass, lies north of the Rio Grande, a small Texan town with a big Latino population that specializes in the cattle industry. Her sister city south of the border, Piedras Negras, is similarly reliant on the cow trade—and just as sweet and sleepy when the movie begins. The two cities celebrate their mutual bond annually on the bridge that connects them. That is until the recent spike in Mexican cartel violence shows up on their doorstep." We're collecting more reviews. » - David Hudson »

Five Questions for Western Directors Bill and Turner Ross

25 January 2015 4:00 AM, PST | Filmmaker Magazine - Blog | See recent Filmmaker Magazine news »

“Ravishing cinema verite” is how the Sundance catalog describes the work of Bill and Turner Ross, whose elegiac American portraits crackle with a lovely lo-fi buzz. Following their New Orleans-set music travelogue Tchoupitoulas, the brothers immerse themselves here in Western within a world considerably tougher — two towns on either side of the Mexican border grappling with the sudden onslaught of cartel violence. Below, we ask them about incorporating that criminal storyline into their film and sticking with the same camera for three pictures. Western premieres today in the Documentary Competition of the Sundance Film Festival. Filmmaker: Your documentaries have […] »

Sundance Exclusive: Poster For The Ross Brothers' Impressionistic Doc 'Western'

21 January 2015 12:00 PM, PST | The Playlist | See recent The Playlist news »

The unique cinematic perspective of Bill and Turner Ross specializes in lyrical and dreamy portraits that redefine what is conventionally understood as "documentary." Thus far, they’ve created two visually stimulating, aurally immersive feature-length docs in “45365” and the SXSW breakout “Tchoupitoulas,” the latter of which portrayed one night in the life of three boys soaking up the vibrant atmosphere of New Orleans. Their latest film, debuting at Sundance Film Festival this weekend, is “Western,” an exploration of life on the American frontier in the present day. “At the forefront, what are the archetypes and images that create this idea?” the Ross brothers said in a “Meet The Artists” Sundance clip which you can see below. “The archetypes of the cowboy and the lawman and the dusty frontier —if you can find John Wayne, what does he look like? What is he doing?” Here’s official Sundance synopsis: For generations, all that distinguished Eagle Pass, »
