Waves ★★★

I appreciate what Trey Edward Shults was going for, but I feel the movie's strength is also its weakness. What I mean by that is the movie's style, which sets it apart from other movies of its kind, is also highly self-indulgent and some of the choices are made just so the narrative doesn't feel as conventional as it really is. It's like Trey Edward Shults was doing everything he could to hide the fact this isn't another indie drama. The second half isn't that emotionally involving, and to be honest, was quite generic. Its contemplative side was a nice change of rhythm though.
