Unique and ambitious, but kind of grim

This movie is being described as being life-affirming. I think that it's more of a study of gut-wrenching , intractable poverty--and a resilient child. The little girl should, and will, be nominated for many acting awards. I didn't exactly enjoy the movie--mostly, it isn't much fun--but, I was impressed by it.

Rated as a "must see" by some movie critics, my wife and I felt this was a waste of time and money. No broad appeal, no message that you could carry home - a colonoscopy would have been more fun.

Review Beasts of the Southern Wild

I enjoyed very much the child's perspective througout the move and the mesmerizing acting skills of the little girl. However the story did no quite convey a clear message.

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.
