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.

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.

Beasts of the Southern Wild

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!

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.
