The downside of living a mid-western town is that highly anticipated and hyped indie films arrive in town weeks and sometimes months after it is released in the larger cities (ie. New York, Los Angeles, etc.). For the past several months I have heard so much about 'Beasts of the Southern Wild' that I think I've mentally seen the film already. So many people love this Grand Jury Prize Sundance Film Festival winner, that Oscar talk has been discussed.
Well, the Michigan Theater will start screening the film on Friday, July 27th, and I will definitely go see it that weekend. Prior to that weekend, I will be seeing The Dark Knight Rises, the final Batman film starring Christian Bale and directed by Christopher Nolan. So the final two weekends of July will demand my seeing two highly discussed films.
Meanwhile, check out this clip of 'Beasts' and hopefully it will whet your appetite to go see it.
Over the next few days, I will catch up on reviewing some films I have seen in the past month this is worthy of mentioning.
