Audience Reviews for Dream Boy
This movie could have used a lot more dialog and a lot less dead air. Having said that, I thought Max Roeg was easy to watch; he has a very nonchalant ease about him. One thing they nailed was the sense of being in the 1970s. I grew up in the '70s and this film made me think of one or two hotties that Max reminded me of...the hair, the creamy white skin, the jeans, the laconic attitudes. Those were simpler times, less hectic, less frenetic, less...can be more, I suppose. 'Dream Boy' was a trip down my own line of reminiscences, sexually and otherwise. Overall, not a bad film, especially if you were a teenager in the '70s.
I wanted to like this but for me it was slow moving, predictable and topped off with a very unsatifying ending.
Cliche but earnest story of a teenage boy in the rural south who moves into a new town and falls in love with another boy. A sweet, well intentioned and well put together, but ultimately reductive film that is drowned by its own lazy storytelling.
