Waves ★★★★

jesusssssssssssss, my heart will not go on after seeing this.

probably one of the prettiest films I’ve seen in the past few months - those colors! the coloring and score and music supervision and sound design and camera work make for a very heavy, intense viewing experience. 

the acting is very raw and real, as I expected. no surprises there.

I felt the structure of the film could’ve been a little more balanced between the two siblings but the way the story unfolds is quite interesting. we watch as one sibling holds everything in, fails to communicate or process the past trauma and current stress he’s under to disastrous results. the other sibling...well, she seems to learn from that? a beautifully packaged, startling story about the power of emotions, communication, love, and how to be a better person.
