So, I have come to the last day of SXSW and what an experience it has been. On Wednesday the music portion of the festival started and the city became absolutely insane. There are people everywhere.
Wednesday we saw a lot of movies. One was about Jimi Hendrix, which was pretty cool. The other was a movie about kids performing a musical and they all get murdered. We also saw a documentary about Swedish House Mafia, music that I do not like, and it turned out to be awesome.
Thursday was a cool day here. We drove around to a few different used record stores and I bought Rubber Soul and Bob Dylan’s first album on vinyl. Earlier that morning we actually saw a movie called Rubber Soul that was about two different interviews that John Lennon gave. On thursday night we saw Nic Cage’s new movie, Joe, which turned out to be really good.
Friday was another day filled with movies. It started out with short films, which are always really good, then to a terrible horror movie. We then saw this film called Before I Disappear, which was very good. We finished off the night with a movie called Space Station 76, a funny movie that took place in the future in space.
I’m sad the festival is ending. It has been an amazing experience. I saw movies that I would never get a chance to see had I not been here. Some of them were bad and some were awesome. It has been a crazy week and I want to return next year. I have no desire to return to school or work. All I want to do now is make films. Hopefully someday I can get a movie in the festival and travel down here to present it. I have to get up now and shower. It’s time to get ready for Day 8 of SXSW.
