Beasts of the Southern Wild

The Southeastern Film Critics’ Association voted Ben Affleck’s Argo the best motion picture of 2012, and the actor-director Affleck was named “Best Director.” 

Ben Zeitlin’s Beasts of the Southern Wild was the overwhelming choice for the group’s Gene Wyatt award, given for the film that “best evokes the spirit of the South,” with Richard Linklater’s Bernie — yet another dramatization of a true story — finishing second. Beasts of the Southern Wild also made the Top 10 best films of 2012 list.
