Amir Syarif Siregar’s review published on Letterboxd:
'Honey Boy' is a painfully real and honest reflection on Shia LaBeouf’s life from his perspective. It showcases the stress and mistreatment that some child actors go through, and it highlights the genuine pain felt by a star who struggles with substance abuse. An incredibly emotional and visceral experience to behold.
The performances from the whole cast throughout the film are stellar. Lucas Hedges and Noah Jupe are both excellent in their portrayals of the main character at different points in his life. However, the real hard-hitting performance is undoubtedly LaBeouf’s portrayal of his father. LaBeouf brought such an intense sense of pride, grief and pain to the role, and the result is a performance that is undoubtedly the best of his career.
