Movies of the week
Of course, they have started to prowl, but their area is restricted to the ‘Celluloid!’
‘Beasts of the Southern Wild’ has opened to packed cinema halls and the unprecedented audience response did not strike the critics like a bolt of lightening.
With a one of its kind plot, the movie manages to evoke emotions and thrills, simultaneously. A girl, who is in desperate look out for her long lost mother, and a father, who has many problems to deal with at the same time; an intolerable illness and the challenge to restore his flood-wounded homeland. And in between all this, his fear-proof daughter discovers her inner strengths, both physical and spiritual.
The movie is crazy at times, but what can you expect from an ambitious project other than sprinkling of crazy ideas, interspersed with a rushing screenplay. ‘The Beasts of the Southern Wild’ exemplifies Independent Cinema at its peak, and if you let it absorb you, a stark change in the way you experience life, will dawn upon you.
Despite having a long queue of new-comers, it manages to weave strong characters. For the day-dreaming people and people with wide-stretched imagination, ‘Beasts of the Southern Wild’ is a simmering cauldron of adventure, stuffed to the brim with prehistoric beasts and unexpected twists. The movie has been authentically shot in story-bound locations.
A must watch for people, who love entertainment king-sized!
