There's always way too many things that happen at festivals. Scheduling alone is a pain in the ass, and there's always that underlying fear: What if you end up seeing all the wrong things and miss the good stuff? Well, that's why we're here to help. Let us spiritually hold your hand and guide you through the shitshow that is a film festival.

This year's SXSW has tons of exciting movies on its slate, including a new Richard Linklater, the return of Pee-wee Herman, and some unknown horrors brewing here and there. But below are the best of the best picks—what everybody is, and should be, talking about—and a little bonus perk about why we, your trusted source, are excited about them.
