While some may come away feeling exhilarated, I think that many may be drained, having shared in Hushpuppy's odd, yet trying life and wondering what may be next for the character.

Beasts of the Southern Wild looks amazing, but the writers spread the narrative out so much that the film ends up having little impact, making this a visual feast that you'll forget about pretty quickly.

The most gallingly overrated film of the year, Beasts of the Southern Wild is a comfortable middle-class fantasy of the moral purity of abject poverty.
