Movies, TV, Books & Music / Beasts of No Nation

A couple years ago Netflix released an original movie called "Beasts of No Nation". In my opinion it was easily one of the best movies that year, and it has stuck with me ever since. It follows the story of a young boy in an ambiguous sub-Saharan African country who ends up as a child soldier in a conflict with no real end. Quite a few of the things that happen to him bear a stark similarity to what Guts went through during his time growing up as a child of war.

Cary Fukunaga (director of the first season of True Detective) was both the writer and director. The performances are top notch; Idris Elba plays a major character (similar in many ways to Gambino), and the main child actors great. It's one of the most moving and emotionally exhausting cinematic experiences I have ever had.

Here's a trailer: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=2xb9Ty-1frw&ab_channel=Netflix
