Some Sunday Beautiful: Hushpuppy & Beasts of the Southern Wild

I saw this film at Chicago Landmark Century Cinema this past Friday.

"... When it all goes quiet behind my eyes,
I see everything that made me ..." - Hushpuppy

My heart may have expanded a bit.

It's an astonishing performance; a fantastical story about survival. Life and death. Family. Pride. And home.

A.O. Scott ends his New York Times review with, "... You are transported by an irresistible rhythm and moved by a melody that is profoundly, almost primally, familiar, even though you are sure you have never heard anything like it before."


  1. "My heart may have expanded a bit." Love it.


Yes! Thanks for the love!
