Overall, "Beasts of The Southern Wild" s a good movie. Not great, but good. If you've got a good home theater set-up, you can easily wait for it to come out on Blu-Ray/DVD/Streaming. There's nothing here that will be that much better in a theater than on a good sized LCD/LED screen. It certainly isn't for everyone. It's slow to the point that it felt like an hour and a half should have passed before it was over. But it is touching and the girl playing "Hushpuppy" does a fantastic job. Also, there are some scenes that are stunningly beautiful (aesthetically) and I did really enjoy the score and music featured in the film.

I've seen Beasts of the Southern Wild twice and looking forward to seeing it AGAIN! The actors were great and the script was excellent. I laughed and cried. A good "get away" film.

I felt this movie was like a magical short story - it drifted along amidst laughter, tears, storms and dreams changing our perceptions of reality and forcing us to dismantle any judgements we may have had about people and how they choose to live - on the grid - off the grid - in a dream or in the real world. Go see the film!

Profound, Disturbing, Enjoyable...

This movie took me away to a place foreign to me that was real and surreal all rolled into one. The reality of the lives portrayed here is hard to watch, but the humanity of them is uplifting. I want my friends who do volunteer work down there to see this.
