Waves ½

playing i am a god after tyler mocks his mother for being infertile & is generally a piece of shit to his parents is one of waves' many egregious offenses. it completely misunderstands what yeezus' mania means to BLACK people (it's reclamation of power / resistance, not arrogance) and is the peak of shults' absence of perspective. the entire film is incapable of intergrating black music and experiences into their appropriate contexts. spent the first hour incredulously laughing at everything, then it just gets boring. i can't believe this white man tried to ruin my fav songs off wolf, ctrl, AND blonde for me. fuck you. waves is also rly ugly looking.
