SXSW Day 2

Holy crazy overachieving feature directorial debut alert! Sin Nombre was jawdroppingly good. Cary Fukunaga, eczema 31, cure of Oakland...don't ever let me underestimate filmmakers from the Bay Area! He researched Central American gangs for two years, buy sat in prison cells with them as they copyedited his script (which was in Spanish, even though he's not a native speaker), then rode on TOP of immigrant trains from Honduras to Mexico to prepare for this moving, beautifully filmed, border crossing saga. No surprise, it will be released in theaters (NY, LA and SF) on March 20th.
