beasts of the southern wild

We saw Beasts of the Southern Wild yesterday, still thinking about it today. It’s a beautiful, surrealist, magical realist story about a hurricane evacuation south of New Orleans. Everything is told through the eyes of a six year old, whose acceptance of the facts of nature around shocked me, one after another. All animals are made out of meat. Prehistoric aurochs thawing from the arctic ice and floating down to the Gulf of Mexico. Streams of gorgeous, post-apocalyptic imagery. Perfect acting by Dwight Henry.
