Kicking off with a dose of Skrillex and Spring Breakers, Kevin B. Lee’s latest supercut rounds up the best films of the decade thus far. The ranking was determined on the fairly informal basis of an all-are-welcome Twitter solicitation. I voted and am bitterly disappointed, though I guess not all that surprised, to see Computer Chess didn’t make it into the top 25. The most pleasantly unexpected inclusion is Kenneth Lonergan’s much-postponed, completely wonderful and nearly buried Margaret at #5.

Set on kicking off the fest with a healthy dose of pizzazz, SXSW first night will host the world premiere of the upcoming Steve Carrell/Steve Buscemi comedy The Incredible Burt Wonderstone. In the film, Carrell and Buscemi play former best friends/magic show partners Burt and Anton. When Anton is injured and leaves the act, Burt is left vulnerable to the opportunistic street performer Steve Gray (Jim Carrey). Also starring in the film are James Gandolfini, Olivia Wilde and Alan Arkin. Joining Wonderstone on opening are six films that are a testament to […]by Billy Brennan on Jan 15, 2013
