Q-Films Review: Beasts of the Southern Wild

Alex February 18, 2013 0

The Sum-Up:
Hushpuppy is the star of the film and my night; she lives in the South somewhere, with her father, he’s got problems. Everybody in their hood is pretty close. Things get shakin up: Hushpuppy to the rescue.

I’m just gonna leave it at that. I didn’t know what to except when I saw it and was pleasantly surprised.

I glanced over a few rave reviews of the 6-year actress, Quvenzhané Wallis, playing the role of Hushpuppy. I put it on my list of films to see. And then a day ago, a friend messaged me and said I HAVE TO see this movie. I saw the movie.

Tears everywhere!
Tears of joy!
Actually, I held in the tears but it was a struggle.
Beautiful. Amazing! I was not expecting it to go there. And then it went somewhere else and I fought those tears too. In those moments, I called upon the courage of Hushpuppy to help my eyes from watering up. It’s hard to see a movie with watery eyes.

This story is what the world needs.
Nobody’s preaching. It’s not an advertisement for patriotism. It’s just like a great f’n moment in time.

I’m so glad this got nominated for everything (Best Picture, Best Director, Best Actress [Zhané is the youngest nominee in this category thus far! ‘You go grrl!’] & Best Adapted Screenplay).

It’s too bad this work of art is up against the fake Bin Laden capture movie and the Lincoln movie that doesn’t even get into his boyfriend drama. Okay? Oh yeah, and the movie that most people only cared about because they heard it had the N-word in it more times than any other movies ever, combined; which it did. Not to mention the movie where everyone’s just yelling at each other the whole time; give it up for people who can’t take responsibility for their own actions.

Anyways, Beasts of the Southern Wild is a terrific movie.
You can watch it on YouTube for $4.99 right now.
It’s more than a pleasant surprise. It’s a warm hug from someone you love when you need it most.
Joy!
