I don’t want to write too much about this because its something y’all just need to experience and see for yourself but here goes. I’ll keep it really short.
It’s intoxicating, heartbreaking, bold, and raw. Feature’s powerhouse performances from the entire cast and gorgeous cinematography. The camerawork is pure ecstasy and also deliberate (you’ll get what I mean once you see it). Gave me Malick vibes and a wonderful score by Trent Reznor and Atticus Ross. The soundtrack features artists Frank Ocean, Kanye West, Radiohead, Animal Collective, SZA and more. The songs perfectly captures the character’s emotions.
Trey Edward Shults puts his heart and soul into this and it shows. Everything is crafted so elegantly. I refuse to say much about the story/how its presented. Except that its about a family that is falling apart and that is all you need to know.
WAVES is cinema at its finest – painted to perfection by Shults that’s full of pure raw emotion. An amazing crescendo of visceral film-making.
