A visionary film which creates, with passionate conviction and a mastery of film language, a world I had never seen on screen before… Narrated by Hushpuppy (Quvenzhané Wallis), a motherless child who lives with Wink (Dwight Henry), her hard-drinking father, and a dozen or two others on the lush, precarious islands just past the levees that failed New Orleans, the film is not so much magic realism as a realistic depiction of a child’s imagination grappling with the beauties and mortal dangers of the natural world and with the humans who nurture it, or threaten its balance and their own lives in the bargain… From the opening deep-night fireworks procession through the swamp to the rampaging herd of prehistoric wild boar set loose by the collapse of the polar ice caps, to the shimmering mirage of the Elysian Fields – a river gambling boat where Hushpuppy dances with her long-lost mother – Beasts of the Southern Wild is all heart, a tactile, tender, uncensored, unsentimental, anarchic, moral guide to finding one’s place on the planet. If that sounds sappy, Beasts is not, in part thanks to the mixture of gravity and spontaneity in its star, only six years old when the film was shot.
