    This won’t be a traditional review for the film, rather, it’s a thank you letter to the incredibly inspiring filmmaker behind it, Trey Edward Shults. I know he’ll never see this and I know Letterboxd isn’t the best place for this, but I have to get everything off my chest. Sometimes a film just absolutely hits you on a personal note and that’s the case with Waves.

    Thank You, Trey

    Thank you for making this beautiful work of art that…

    “I realized I never really came alive for myself. I was only feeding his aliveness.”

He’s an all around incredible human being and this doc beautifully showcases the love everyone in his life had for him. We need more people like Anton.

    Arthur Fleck is a lonely, depressed man living a miserable life. Such an interesting backstory for a character of the magnitude of Joker. The potential for what could’ve been a nuanced and multi-faceted deep dive into such a character is huge; however, Todd Phillips takes this film and this character down a journey full of surface level themes that are shoved down your throat for the entire 2-hour runtime. My mouth was agape at some of the choices made regarding…
