Beasts of the Southern Wild - Brooklyn Heights Cinemas
Mike: Brooklyn Heights Cinemas is closing, so I wanted to enjoy a few more films there before they do. Nowadays I find it to be a pretty cool experience when I go see a first-run film and it's 35mm projection. That experience has become incredibly rare lately, and while watching Beasts of the Southern Wild in 35mm I felt a bit sad about that.
Beasts of the Southern Wild is a fantastic film that is totally deserving of its indie breakout status. It's a marvelous achievement highlighted by an original, unique story, moving performances, and a memorable score. It's a film I'll certainly remember at the end of the year. As a Summer release, I just hope others will remember it, too.
