Beasts of the Southern Wild - 5/10
. . . the 'beasts' being the foul and ignorant dwellers of 'Bathtub', right? I was insulted when it was asking for my sentiments at the end after that poor girls love was ridiculed by her father. Her wild imaginations upset me; no doubt sparked by a shortfall and yearning for love. And the love she receives, when she is truly at her most contented in the film, is a scene wherein a strange hooker who bears likeness to her deceased mother fries her up a plate of calamari and embraces her for a few moments. It struck me the wrong way.
A fierce little lady and a wonder-struck performance, but the film and its social logic confused me.
