Hot Summer Nights
9 August 2018 | by ViolentStarfishSee all my reviews

The only reason I saw this movie was so I could see Timothée Chalamet, because I didn't get to see Call Me By Your Name, but people were talking about how great of an actor he was. Though his acting is pretty much the only strength this movie has going for it. Every other actor isn't the least bit convincing and they made their characters incredibly one dimensional. The story is incredibly lame and pulled back. The film relied way too much on making it stylistic and hip, and forgot how to tell a decent story. And even then, most of the stylistic choices were either out of place or incredibly forced. Even with all these choices that the movie makes it has a very tough time finding a tone. I wish the movie didn't pull back on so much like nudity and drug use. I wish they would mess things up a little bit. It felt really tame. I did really enjoy some of the music. The cinematography is really great and I even enjoyed some of the sequences I didn't expect to enjoy. But most of the movie felt really ham-fisted. How some characters are introduced felt rushed, the dialogue was sometimes really cliche and cringey. I already mentioned the biggest set backs above. I just wish they had directing and writing to back up the lead actor that plays so well. Overall, I was really disappointed with the movie. You're all trash.
