It's never a "free speech" issue. It's usually a "these are the consequences of your freedom to speak" issue.

Beasts of the Southern Wild

First time filmmaker Behn Zeitlin and co-writer Lucy Alibar have given me that rush, hopefulness and a mythic proportion of connectedness that only comes from witnessing art being born. I haven't seen that in a long time. The film is absolutely riveting, asking the viewer to suspend cultural bias and assumption to move into the world of The Bathtub (an area off the coast of Louisiana). Hushpuppy , Ouvenshane Wallis, is brilliant, but I believe this script and direction would have sparked magic with many talented young girls. Ouvenshane Wallis just took it to the pinnacle.

Films that can also be classified as art are rare. Beasts of the Southern Wild achieves masterpiece status.
