Waves, started as a compromising self destruct story. It really excited me cause I think self destruct theme centered movies are few compared to books. Camera work enhanced my attention to the movie. My engagement was beyond words for the first one hour. However, as the second part begins, the film starts to fall apart. In the first hour, we saw stylistic, brutal, and very well constructed Tyler's self destruct story. The family-centered drama is not really vocalizing the story and helps the movie to reach its final destination. The second part is definitely not pretentious but a bit unnecessary.
There is so much to say about Waves. Frank Ocean on repeat, inspiring camera movements, and portrayal of Raskolnikovish type character. Tyler is human and innocent in his way. I sincerely enjoyed dialogues, sound, and camera work.
If this movie were a music album, it would be The Weeknd's Trilogy.
