It plays like Days of Heaven by way of The Road Warrior.

As Wink, Hushpuppy's father, Dwight Henry is one of the greatest finds in Hollywood in years. Henry shows a depth and range that made actors like Denzel Washington so great.

What is also extraordinary is that almost all the people we see are actors. So this is not a documentary but a moving enactment by people who are themselves moved.

A cute, but meandering story of growing up alone and having to fend for oneself even when there's help to be received.
January 27, 2013
One of the ten best films of 2012.
January 23, 2013
A strangely different and slightly magical film.

Prepare to be moved and inspired by this unique masterpiece.

Beasts of the Southern Wild is the reason we go to movies.

Yearns to find eternal truths under impossible circumstances, and succeeds with flying colors by my watch.

In his willingness to ignore convention, Zeitlin does reveal a confidence that few first-time directors display. He's made a film that's the antithesis of Hollywood's summer mind-set.

Beasts of the Southern Wild is sheer poetry on screen: an explosion of joy in the midst of startling squalor and one of the most visceral, original films to come along in a while.

For all its curiosities and loose ends, Beasts of the Southern Wild casts a formidable spell.

A startling debut feature - this year's "Winter's Bone," but a film all the more magical because we sense that even Zeitlin, as sharp as his eye undoubtably is, will never be able to duplicate it.

Without TREMÉ, BEASTS would not have worked for me, and compared to TREMÉ, BEASTS is little more than a slight, forgettable diversion.

Really the lifestyle of these people takes center stage. It's hard not to appreciate their joie de vivre, or the believable performances these non-actors give. They're both "beasts"!

The film with the biggest heart of 2012.

I doubt anyone is going to watch Beasts of the Southern Wild and understand it immediately... But it's still a fascinating movie.

This movie has to be seen to be believed, and to be believed, it simply has to be seen.

Fully formed and beautiful whether you like it or not.

When you live in the city and you buy your meat wrapped in cellophane, it's a pleasant fantasy to believe that people who sleep in the dirt and gut their dinners are possessed of a spiritual richness that you've always felt you're somehow lacking.
