Haiku Review – Beasts of the Southern Wild

I could live there.

Never thought I’d see

A piece of swamp so gorgeous

As this here Bathtub

 

This film is magic.

A bright star of joy and mirth

But with a dark side

 

Cannot look away

Drawn into the misery

And the fantasy

 

You could fill a book

With the things Hushpuppy says

Brilliant bon mots

 

Director should teach

Children if he can produce

Such a young actress

 

Maybe we should all

Attribute life’s issues to

A herd of aurochs

 

For all of its ills

The Bathtub appears a dream

The real world a hell

 

Music is like a

Tinkling mystery parade

And a grand party

 

Touching and heartfelt

A feel-good fantasy wrapped

In a hurricane

 

Mark of a good film:

Natural inclusion of

Viking funerals
