After seeing the just-announced lineup of films showing at the South by Southwest festival this year, I'm salivating. There are some movies premiering at SXSW that I've been patiently awaiting for what feels like forever, like Run, Fat Boy, Run with Simon Pegg and Hank Azaria. Then there are others that I'd just love to see before they are actually released, like Forgetting Sarah Marshall (later opening April 18), the Kevin Spacey casino movie 21 (opening March 28) and Harold and Kumar Escape from Guantanamo Bay (April 25).
What's really putting me over the edge is that there are Sundance titles here that I never got into and desperately wanted to see, like the adaptation of Chuck Palahniuk's Choke, the high school noir film The Assassination of a High School President and the documentary Young@Heart.
The festival takes place March 7-15 in Austin, Texas. What about you? Do you live close enough — or are you willing to make a trek — to see some of these films at SXSW? And are you chomping at the bit as much as I am?
