Decatur Patch is trying something new. If you saw a movie recenty, give us a mini-review. It doesn't have to be a full-fledged review, but if you want to write one, let it flow.
I'll start. I saw "Beasts of the Southern Wild" on Saturday and couldn't wait for it to end.
It's a raw, almost-plotless story about a small group of people living in squalor in The Bathtub, a little community cut off from the rest of New Orleans by a levee. Told through the eyes of a little girl named Hushpuppy, the story blurs the line between fantasy and hard-edge realty. The overarching mood is anxiety.
Sounds arty, right? For me, it was a beautiful bummer. I wish I spent my ten bucks on another movie.
