Beasts of the Southern Wild 2012,  PG-13)
Beasts of the Southern Wild
Holy. Crap.

By 2:24, I decided I loved this.
By 8:00, I decided this was my favorite movie.
By 22:00, this whole soundtrack is getting downloaded.

I'm intrigued by the fact that I'm not sure if this should go on the street kids OR the child abuse list or neither

First realistic movie about gang wars. Unforced or dramatized story, that plays out as realistically as real life, without any artificial use of normal plot devices.

Holy crap at Anne Hathaway;s singing. Is this real?? Her role is too short.

I'm tired of Hugh Jackman's singing of ..just anything he says. It's too much. It's too long.

Waste Land 2010,  Unrated)
Waste Land
Interesting insight into the impact of social stigma associated with an occupation or class.

He makes giant ariel portraits of landfill workers out of refuse. Like the art attack guy.

Awkward denial of the reality that he created the images, by everyone involved.
