O que se diz lá fora sobre BEASTS OF THE SOUTHERN WILD, de Benh Zeitlin:
«A stunning debut that finds its dandelion-haired heroine fighting rising tides and fantastic creatures in a mythic battle against modernity.»
Peter Debruge, Variety.
«This movie is a blast of sheer, improbable joy, a boisterous, thrilling action movie with a protagonist who can hold her own alongside Katniss Everdeen, Princess Merida and the other brave young heroines of 2012.»
A.O. Scott, The New York Times.
«The movie is small, local, and idiosyncratic. Then again, it's also a thing of beauty and originality - and for that, sustained huzzahs are in order.»
Lisa Schwarzbaum, Entertainment Weekly.
«It's very much an art piece, to be sure, but it feels like a genuine one that, while meditated, speaks fluently and truly for the place, people and culture it so indelibly depicts.»
Todd McCarthy, The Hollywood Reporter.
«If nothing else, this memorable effort eloquently displays Hushpuppy's fragile understanding of her world, where the only certainty is that nothing lasts forever. That makes BEASTS into a gigantic triumph even when it falls apart.»
Eric Kohn, indieWIRE.
