Special effects: boring Unanswered questions: dozens Plot: nearly nonexistent Acting: the only worthwhile aspect of the film Bottom line: not worth the price of the ticket

The movie was very captivating with a good deal realism, old Bayou before and after the hurricane. Hushpuupy was taught to not depend on anyone. This is a must see!

Beasts of the Southern Wild

This is a brilliant film. I would like to meet the minds that conceived of and so beautifully and convincingly crafted the character of this little girl, and the world in which she lives. The screenwriter and director reveal an intelligence and sensitivity that are seldom seen in American cinema (or seen without extensive searching). It does indeed have some heart-wrenching moments, and I left the theatre red-eyed. BUT...I am a mom-of-two who put off seeing this movie exactly because I dreaded the wrenching...and I'm GLAD I finally went. There is also laughter and fascination enough to balance the pain. Do yourself a favor and go see this film!

Loved it! It will stick with me for a long time to come. Visually arresting, Plausible, yet inventive story and amazing acting by the adorable 5 year old lead, Quvenzhané Wallis (now 7 y.o. I believe). Although she's very young, I could very well see her ending up with a best actress Oscar nom.

Really liked this fresh, unique film. Watching the amazing child actress alone is worth the price of admission. Rough characters, rough landscape, rough (unpolished) cinematography all work to provide a surrealistic experience. References to post-Katrina delta and melting ice caps give us scary reminders, but the art of the filmmaking stops short of hitting us over the head with preaching about ecology.
