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

What you sound like Mr. Weeks is an uncreative coward and Southern elitist. In making art, no one has a copyright on their heritage to only be able to tell their story. Steven Spielberg directed the "Color Purple", was he an African-American from the South? No. Spike Lee directed "Summer of Sam", was he Italian American from the Bronx? No. So your qualms about he is "not really connected to the South" are hogwash. The people are correct, you are sounding quite uneducated.

You are also saying the people who are rich cannot talk about people who are poor. Why not? What law in the United States says rich should not be able to talk about the poor? If this was the case, where are your articles attacking the Republican Party, FOXNews, and every other Ayn Rand disciple who says "it is the fault of the poor for their situation!" Is this not the rich having a very strong opinion on the poor? It seems that you have a subtle hatred for the poor by evening saying how creating "The Bathtub" is somehow making the characters of these people less than human. The only person who seems to feel that way is you! So who is the real elitist here?

Finally, is this not a movie!! This is not reality! This is not a documentary! Yes, I am attacking your lack of imagination and creativity! A fictional work is supposed to take us to a new place in our minds apart from the reality in which we exist. Everything you reviewed about the film basically is saying "this does not make sense!" Correct. What about making sense or being factual is interesting! Peter Pan and the Lost Boys does not make sense, Lord of the Flies does not make sense, Heart of Darkness does not make sense! Are you even still connected with your creative side as a human? You seem to be missing something integral in your life that is not allowing you to see beyond the things and allow you to appreciate your feelings. Everyone who commented before knows you felt something very powerful that touched your core - but like many Bullheaded Westerners, you got scared and thus wrote such an angry review about a tragic story of love between a father and daughter! Dude, this is a film about a daughter losing her father! I mean if you are angry with that, then yes, you have serious internal work to do. Yes, I reviewed you with this commentary.
