This movie will touch some in very a emotional way and others will wonder why.   I was moved by the entire movie and was caught up in every moment of Hushpuppies life.   This revue says surreal, but at the same time you are aware of people's exsistence much like this.   Their fights and struggles very real and maybe a bit  too strong, but real nevertheless. Inside Hushpuppy world is very real girl, a very frightened child and learning her way through it all.  Touching .. A must see.

7. "Beasts of the Southern Wild"

Surreal and beautiful, suffused with dread yet buoyed by hope and determination, "Beasts of the Southern Wild" is a film that's difficult to classify and impossible to forget. It tells the story of a little girl named Hushpuppy (the astonishing Quvenzhane Wallis) and her father, Wink (Dwight Henry), as they survive and navigate the aftermath of a tremendous storm that devastates their isolated bayou community known as the Bathtub. With prehistoric creatures re-emerging around them and floodwaters drowning their very way of life, Hushpuppy and the other inhabitants of the Bathtub somehow manage to keep themselves alive in an ultimately indifferent world.

The allusions to post-Katrina New Orleans and other low-lying Louisiana communities are unmistakable, yet director Benh Zeitlin's film is made even more poignant by placing its setting just outside the real world: The Bathtub, as evidenced more recently by the onslaught of Hurricane Sandy, could be any community, anywhere. And while the adults in the story face their situation with a certain grim resignation, it is Hushpuppy's indefatigable strength and innocence that represents the best hope any of us have. She is one of the most mesmerizing characters of the year and, like the film around her, a true American original. -- Don Kaye
