All my thanks to reader StephenM, who scrounged up a link to watch Southwest on Vimeo. In addition to recently anointing it the best feature and best-shot film of 2013, I’ve been crazy for it ever since the 2011 Chicago International Film Festival, and when I get around to a Best of the 2010s list, I’d be shocked if it’s not high in the ranking.
It is artsy as all fuck, and totally wonderful. A computer isn’t the best way to watch it, probably; but then, the only other time I’ve ever seen it was on a screener DVD, so it’s not like I know what the hell I’m talking about.
Once again, the link: http://vimeo.com/51020067
