Day 01- The best movie you saw during the last year
Beasts of the Southern Wild (2012)- Beasts of the Southern Wild is exactly what filmmaking is all about creating a believable post-apocalyptic fantasy world, utilizing actors who probably never acted before to show true emotion, gorgeous visuals that mesmerize the viewer, and a story of of a Hayao Miyazaki film. Beasts goes above and beyond giving a dazzling view at Hushpuppy, played to perfection by newcomer Quvenzhané Wallis, as she struggles to live in The Bathtub alongside her father to find her mother all while wild beasts come to life from the life. The leaps and bounds the film takes are something to witness creating a realistic if nearly abusive relationship between a daughter and her father and shows her imagination.
