I want Cary Fukunaga to direct all the movies
With this film, Cary Fukunaga proves himself an incredibly talented up-and-coming director who should see a long, award-filled career ahead of him. This is a challenging, weighty movie, and it doesn't shy away from the darkness entailed therein. Idris Elba delivers a (as per usual) commanding lead performance, and Fukunaga manages to bring out extraordinary performances out of all of the child actors. Beasts of No Nation would be a courageous risk for any filmmaker, but especially for an up-and-comer like Fukunaga, so I'm very glad that it is a success.
See it on a movie screen because it's definitely not a Netflix 'n Chill-type film.
