"Once there was a Hushpuppy and she lived with her daddy in the Bathtub" turns out to be a literal description of the plot in this ridiculously original fairy tale about a young girl living with her alcoholic father on an island cut off from the Louisiana mainland by the Katrina floodwaters. It's sort of like THE TREE OF LIFE set in a post-apocalyptic bayou, with the best performance you'll see by a six-year old in the most original movie of the year.

There are lots of 6-year old girl dream sequences and it might be too arty and outside your comfort zone, but if you liked TREE OF LIFE, give it a try. If I had to vote today I'd name it the best movie of the year.

"The best parts are watching Sly go through the full range of emotions: deadpan, deadpan with raised eyebrow, deadpan with quivering lip. There's also a great sequence where Sly drives his VW Beetle down the interstate for about 20 minutes, staring dramatically through the windshield.."-Joe Bob on A MAN CALLED RAMBO

I've heard it was good.  We have a screening here shortly as part of the Melbourne International Film Festival, and I was very keen to go but it sold out before I got to book so I'll have to wait until it comes out on DVD/gets a limited release later in the year.

    Earth is visited by a GIANT ANTIMATTER SPACE BUZZARD! Gawk at the amazingly bad bird puppet, or chuckle over the silly dialog. This is one of the greatest b-movies ever made.

    Lesson Learned:
    • Osmosis: os·mo·sis (oz-mo'sis, os-) n., 1. When a bird eats something.
