Spotlight on Texas

Mess with Texas? Why would we want to when the Lone Star State's churning out films par excellence as of late? Home to a thriving film culture, its epicenter in Austin, the region is flush with upstart filmmakers and vibrant programming (thanks to the Austin Film Society and SXSW). Texas has a rich pedigree of filmmaking talent too, from genre masters like Tobe Hopper (of CHAINSAW MASSACRE fame) to mavericks like Eagle Pennell. And then superstars like Terrence Malick, Richard Linklater and Wes Anderson came along. Mess with Texas? We wouldn't dare.
