Sequoia
An uneven, but still strangely appealing look at mortality, second chances and family dysfunction, the SXSW indie "Sequoia" may resemble a less joyful, arguably more honest version of the "Little Miss Sunshine" narrative, but it still has its own charms despite having many disagreeable characters.

Art Machine
How do movies feel about the art world again? It seems to always be adversarial, to a point at which the bougie industry of pastels and fancy grants is never less than alien to a filmgoers’ worldview. But if that were entirely the case, why would they make so many movies about it—movies where art almost stands alone (you never seen a film set in the “art world” where people consider opting for catching a flick instead)?

Starring Isaiah Washington, Tequan Richmond, Joey Lauren Adams and Tim Blake Nelson, it's based on the chilling true story of the Beltway Sniper, who kept Washington, D.C., Maryland, and Virginia at a standstill in October 2002 but randomly killing people along Interstate 95 with no apparent rhyme or reason.
