The Beasts of Southern Wild
Let me first say, I still don't have a complete understanding of the film because this is one of those movies that leave wondering what you just watched in a good way, and something you have to soak in and think about, and also re-watch. The whole movie is almost played out like a poem with glimpses of action in my mind, with possible hints of some social commentary in it (Although it definitely is NOT about that). The metaphors play wonderfully, and it has a very weird and strange sort of power to it, and it really makes you see this entire world created through a child's eyes and how they would see it making it a wonderful achievement.
Next, although the only acting you can really commend is Ms. Wallis (not trying to pronounce her first name) for completely carrying this movie at an incredibly young age, everybody is fine in it, but Wallis is fantastic. It is also beautiful to watch and for something with a budget of measly 2 million dollars its effects and visuals are very impressive.
Now before I give the film a rating let me say not everybody is going to enjoy this movie, it requires lots of thought and attention (although it is fairly short so you don't need to give it for to long) and there are no parts where you can really turn your brain off and watch like a lot of movies. It is also one that you need to see multiple times to get a decent grasp at its meaning and impact, and it has a really great punch to it when you do. So with all that in mind I will give The Beasts of Southern Wild an 8.7/10
