    Beasts of the Southern Wild (2012)

    This one came out of left field. Based on a play, it follows a community of bayou dwellers being displaced by a massive flood, told from the perspective of a young girl. It's infuriating, heart-breaking, beautiful, and a bit confusing. It's an art movie that shows real-world tragedy, which is good and bad. There are times that you can't tell if something is real or a representation of an abstract. It's beautiful in its confusion at times, but it can still be confusing nonetheless. Worthy of it's Oscar nominations, although whether it deserves to actually get those Oscars is hard to tell.
