So what year are considering the Western modern? I suppose I would say 90s to current.

In that case, Unforgiven, Tombstone, Open Range, True Grit, 3:10 to Yuma and now Django Unchained would be among my favorite modern Westerns.

and the end scene; shit! never gonna forget that.
Yeah great film and legendary ending, read somewhere that ending was more the result of a technical fault and wasnt supposed to be so over the top but it works perfect.
Dont think Id pick it over Yojimbo but its up there, its definitely lighter and more action but I just prefer the badass intensity of Yojimbo.

Still loads of Kurosawa films I havent seen, I should really get on that, loved nearly all the ones I have seen.

Destiny was pimping this yesterday and combined with Bubz continually harping on about it being one of the best films 2012 had to offer and me declaring God to make me a eunuch if I delayed watching any longer, I decided to check it out.

Jesus christ, its powerful, poignant and certainly leaves a lasting impression on you. I must have had it confused with another film because I was expecting this uplifting and beautiful magical tale, and instead the beauty was enshrined in the hearbreak and community spirit embodied by the devotion of this tiny community to not abandon their little home, 'The Bathtub'. I particularly loved the camera effects and how the film was shot in a way that let us the viewer see the world and home as 6 year old HushPuppy does. The beauty is obviously that as an adult our perception of the community differs greatly and what seems a hospitable and homely place to HushPuppy is actually in startling difference to the child abuse, chronic alcoholism and bleak outlook on life that we the viewer witnesses as an adult. Quvenzhané Wallis is tremendous as the protagonist with such an eery presence for a 5 year old at the time of shooting. The camerawork and aesthetic visual really lends itself to magnifying the presence and charm of this tiny girl wise well beyond her years and it makes the tumultous and piercing scenes truly stand out.

So much can be said for the relationship between HushPuppy and her father. Dwight Henry is magnificent as the dad who alternated between doting and attentive dad and cruel and violent drunk. The range in the scenes between the pair is heartbreaking and the gradual build from the first half to the second does a remarkable job in adding suspense to their plight and pondering where their direction is heading. People who've seen the film will know what I'm referring to when I say the scene between them in front of a bus outside a shelter is piercing in emotion and heartbreak and the subsquent climax to the very end is a wonderful journey. I was also a fan of the almost surrealist shooting of the scene in the bar as it encapsulates how HushPuppy views this new setting which she has no understanding of. The teasing of this doting woman perhaps being her mum was beautiful and her eventual decision to return to the place she calls home felt like a genuine moment of clarity on her part.

It won't be a film for everyone in due part to the dialogue, camerawork and lack of a clear plot (I think the narrative and overarching journey is enough to convey your interest, but I could understand someone finding the pace off-putting) but if you give it your attention the emotion and powerful approach the film strives to create will certainly leave an impression on you.


Amazing review.

If Quvenzhané Wallis wins Best Actress, it will only be to make her the youngest to do so. Such a waste of an Oscar win. Probably the only reason she is even nominated in the first place. BOTSW is a good film but very overrated, could barely finish it. Doesn't deserve the Best Picture nod, and she is by far the worst nominee on that list this year.

IMO, Marion Cotillard was snubbed because of this girl. Riva won the BAFTA among others, no doubt she is not the weak link. And Rust and Bone was five times better than Beasts.

It's a waste if an actress is too young to win..? I don't quite get the logic there.

Lol, "oscars" and "deserving" in the same phrase.

In fact, LOLoscars

It's a waste if the only reason she is nominated is to break the record for youngest nominee.

I still don't see the logic here. I mean, the option was always open to have someone be the "youngest" nominee. The movie has received great praise & the actress is being rewarded for her work by being nominated. I doubt there was an ulterior motive behind it. It's not a conspiracy theory.
