Re: “Don't believe the hype about Beasts of the Southern Wild

I'm in South America and my wife and I just watched this totally disconnected, waste of time film. I've also spent quite a bit of time in Southern Louisiana, and the film showed nothing like anything I have ever seen there. When I mentioned the word "poor," my wife said, "They're not poor. They've got plenty to eat and obviously plenty to drink. They're dirty because they're alcoholics. But they're certainly not poor." If you're poor, you don't have tons of livestock, all the booze you want, fireworks and land. What I despise most about the film is that it glorifies irresponsible drunkenness, with the worst part being giving a 6-year-old booze and thinking it's cute. And having her see over-sized warthogs instead of pink elephants shows total ignorance on the part of a script writer. I agree with Weeks that the film is total trash. Of course the totally clueless awards dips who spend their lives in Holiday Inns would find it astonishing because the bedspreads don't match.
