"Waves (Shults, 2019)"


  

          

Been getting absolute raves. Saw it tonight. I thought the first half was cliched, bordering on *bad,* but the second half is ultimately worth the journey. Taylor Russell is extraordinary, and Sterling K. Brown is also really good. Plus the soundtrack is really terrific throughout. Worth a look for those looking to support indie cinema.

Absolutely shattering portrayal of a family in crisis, haven't sobbed like that in a good long while. From the opening shot it's abundantly clear that Shults interned for Malick, but holy shit does he know how to marry his eye to your heart. And his taste in music is absurdly well-refined. See it in a theater while you can.

I'm glad I stayed, as I enjoyed the second half way more than the first. But glad I'm not alone in feeling that way.

Just finished my DVD screener and honestly my brother and I wanted to turn it off even before the halfway point. And yes while the second half is better, it's still trash.

I have a lot to say about using a black family about telling this story, but I'll wait and marinate on it some more.

Why the fuck was this shit called WAVES?

And why have a Trent and Atticus score if it's gonna be drowned out by Frank Ocean and a million needle drops?
