Waves ★★★★

This floored me. It’s a movie that could easily rub you the wrong way and have you rolling your eyes. I feel like it’s of a kin with Dolan’s earlier movies on an emotional and formal level. Despite the A24 tropes that have become stale for some audiences, I truly think if you give yourself over to the movie and disavow yourself of all cynicism, you might also really like it!

Being overly saccharine, sorry. I don’t really wanna get into the plot and its structure. I kinda knew a certain detail early on, or at least I thought I did. Idk. Different aspect ratios throughout kinda threw me initially, but I got used to it. 

Teenagers being teenagers. People trying to be as empathetic as they can even in the most trying times.
