Waves: the movie that dares to ask the question, "What if the kid who brutally murders his pregnant ex-girlfriend is the REAL victim?!"
Despised this. Plays like a parody of A24's style—slathered in neon, packed end to end with obnoxious needle drops, camera constantly bobbing and rotating without purpose, no fewer than SEVEN aspect ratio changes. And then there's the story, which is overwrought to near comedy—the highlight might be a climactic argument via text messages that plays out in real time exactly the way you'd expect, right down to an autocorrected "DUCKING." Bad, bad, bad.
