A heartbreaking and enchanting but flawed tale.

Beasts Of The Southern Wild is based on the one-act play named Juicy And Delicious by Lucy Alibar, who co-wrote the film’s screenplay. To put it simply, the story is told of a six year old girl and the relationship with her unhealthy, ill-tempered father in their poor family home and the problems that come before them. It is a magical tale and is told through forms of the real world that mixes w... read more

There’s a phenomenon that seem to happen every year around summer time – amidst all the strum und drag of the cacophonous summer movie season, a tiny indie film gets released that captures the hearts of critics, audiences and awards season. It started off with Little Miss Sunshine, and it continues with the exquisite miniature portraiture of Beasts of the Southern Wild.

A good movie

Almost every year now, you have one small feature opening at Sundance which gets a massive push from critics and becomes a hit, at least critically. Well, this movie was a typical example and therefore, I was really eager to check it out. Eventually, even though I really liked it, I can’t say I really loved it though. Basically, it is a rather dark and gloomy picture, with some really nice direc... read more

"First viewing - April 8th I keep seeing praise for this film, so I wanted to check it out. I appreciated the unique story as well as the acting. I felt at times like I was watching a documentary instead of a fictional movie, which tells you how perfect the acting is here. I kept waiting for it to hit me emotionally, but it never really did. Otherwise it was good though, and I'm glad I gave it a chance."

" chosen by Eric Notes: Eventually, even though I really liked this movie, I can’t say I really loved it though. Basically, it was a rather dark and gloomy picture, with some nice directing and really strong acting but, to be honest, I didn’t like their approach of showing a harsh reality while telling you at the same time ‘Don’t worry, this is't actually reality, it is in fact some magic realism so you shouldn’t worry about the terrible fate of these characters’. I also didn’t lik"
