Highly Suspect Reviews: Waves

Waves Movie Review


Tyler has got it all going for him. He’s a star on his wrestling team, lives with an affluent family, gets good grades, has a beautiful girlfriend and a solid relationship…until we start to see the cracks form. The film Waves presents Tyler’s story in a dynamic, dizzying, and unforgettable visual style with a wildly solid score by Trent Reznor and Atticus Ross and it will stress you out and break your heart. And that’s just the first half of the movie. Chris, Alan, Frank, Marco, and Bobby got to see this latest A24 release which debuted to huge acclaim at Telluride this year but they have some quibbles. Check out their review here.


DIRECTED BY: Trey Edward Shults

STARRING: Kelvin Harrison Jr., Lucas Hedges, Taylor Russell, Alexa Demie, Renée Elise Goldsberry, Sterling K. Brown, Clifton Collins Jr., Neal Huff, Harmony Korine, Bill Wise
