Need to watch Beasts of the Southern Wild
. Ya know what? I'mma watch it today. May God make me a eunuch if I not follow through with this claim.
Half-Nelson is excellent. A very real and raw take on someone trying to do right by a minor, whilst coming to a self-realisation they haven't been doing right by themselves for a long time. Very well acted, nice cinematography and a very real and important subject matter which isn't presented in a pretentious or extravegant manner. Its incredibly easy to dislike Gosling's character at spells in the film whilst seeing his motivation and understanding his actions, love the film.
