this movie was something special, great acting cast, to compliment the story. For those that expect a high pace drama film please skip. This is a movie that can definitely be considered a slow pace. The slow pace of the movie is masked but the beautiful cinematography. Go check this film out.
See it, it’s amazing
The was not that good
It was slow and we were bored. I don't know how it got such great reviews.
A beautiful movie with a great soundtrack that takes teenagers seriously and delves into their lives in a stylish, contemporary way.
Top 1 or 2 films of 2019. Beautifully made.
Great acting. Heart wrenching, but redemptive. Loved it.
I noticed how it took you through the life of multiple characters who were in the same family, during different moments of their lives.
TES' attempt at a film adaptation of bipolar disorder set to a score by Trent Reznor and the music of Kendrick and Kanye reaks of that white kid you knew in high school who's "into hip-hop". If the director wants Kanye's attention so bad, he's going to have to start doing more squats.
Waves is an overworked and manipulative film that exploits the image of an affluent black family in order to protect from valid criticism of a film without depth. The characters' blackness is irrelevant to the narrative except to show that the director has seen The Cosby Show and knows black families can have big houses too. It could also matter because a white character in the same situation in Florida may not have been convicted of the crime he is accused of, however, now that I think about it, a film about how an exonerated white boy accused of murder and his family deal with life after the trial would have been a much more interesting film. TES seems to think he's doing something revolutionary by suggesting that a black family could be sad after a tragedy. Waves has big "please clap" energy.
Someone found a bunch of gear in an abandoned studio and wanted to try it all out in one go. The artistic choices are so distracting that a story about, opioid addiction, abortion, race, cancer, death, and family has zero emotional weight. The performances are great, but wait for these actors to find work in other films before you waste time with Waves.
The second half of the film doesn't suffer from the above, so if you're someone who is always late to things you might enjoy it. Just make sure you're really late.
The entire movie was horrible.
