Christy Lemire, Associated Press
Beasts of the Southern Wild is sheer poetry on screen: an explosion of joy in the midst of startling squalor and one of the most visceral, original films to come along in a while.– Full review
CJ Johnson, ABC Radio (Australia)
This movie has to be seen to be believed, and to be believed, it simply has to be seen.– Full review
David Sexton, This is London

Peter Bradshaw, Guardian [UK]
Benh Zeitlin's debut feature is part film, part hallucination: a ripe and gamey piece of what you might call Apocalyptic Southern Gothic, ambitious and flawed but sprinting with energy.– Full review
Tim Robey, Daily Telegraph
Few American debuts in recent years have announced a talent as singular as that of Behn Zeitlin, the blazingly gifted director and co-writer of Beasts of the Southern Wild.– Full review
