Beasts of No Nation

beasts-of-no-nation-posterI loathe movies that hold your hand and tell you exactly how you should be responding to their every scene. It is almost as bad as those prestige pictures which are more concerned with awards than providing a true cinematic experience.

With its subject matter, Beasts of No Nation could have very well be one of those. Thankfully, Cary Fukunaga’s camera is brave enough to never sacrifice realism for the sake of emotion. The result is an unflinching and memorable picture.
