Critic Reviews for Hot Summer Nights
Bynum swerves this story into gangster territory without an exit strategy. It's as if he felt the movie was always one ingredient shy of having a distinct taste of its own, and kept adding things to the mix until he ran out of time.
[Elijah Bynum] solicits strong performances from his young cast - especially Timothée Chalamet as the teenage fish out of water - and blends humor and increasingly dark sensibility to good effect.
Visually atmospheric but tonally all over the place, Hot Summer Nights, a first feature by Elijah Bynum, has much to appreciate but ultimately possesses the sampler-platter vibe of a director's demo reel.
Elijah Bynum's directorial debut, Hot Summer Nights, is a brazen anti-coming-of-age thriller that oozes with all the right confidence, chutzpah, and passion.
Hot Summer Nights is a sneaky slice of dark Americana, a gorgeously shot, hard truth coming-of-age tale rendered through a lens of innocence and grandeur, a sexy 20th century fairy tale.
