Excellent review. Cannot wait for this week!
It’s not a documentary; and there’s nothing in it of the anthropological earnestness that can deaden a film that looks into an obscure corner of the world. “Beasts” has an exciting palpability, an oxygen-sharp sense of the present tense. It’s raucous and alive.
