Crashing waves of anger, regret, consequence, and hopelessness. Crashing waves of love, redemption, forgiveness, and hope. This film is awash with many moments of high emotion and feeling, and while it doesn't always come together as hoped, it is still a commendable effort.

Waves is sometimes disorienting, but it was a massive punch to the guts. The trailer had gotten me hooked since it came out but I only just got around to watching it. Boy am I glad I did watch it though! Love the cast. Here for the music. Definitely will look forward to what the director has coming next.

A good movie about a topic that's been made movies off a lot lately, what with dysfunctional families/millenials, drugs and America, and all that. American Honey did it quite well, too. The camera-work in the beginning almost nauseated me, but it was interesting camerawork nonetheless. I liked how the director used lights and colours in this. Very dramatic and neo-noiresque, I appreciated that. I also enjoyed the different angles and takes. I had not expected the main focus and main character to shift – a pleasant surprise. A lot of tragedy packed into one film, and many moments I was moved to tears. So sad how hard it seems for people to just love another (and stop capslocking about important issues). When we realise how all things have causes and effects and everything influences each other, it gets tougher to assign blame too. [spoiler]But holy damn was I bothered by how they ruled a homicide _by accident_ as "second degree murder" and "lifelong prison". What the actual fuck, that justice system is seriously fucked. Also wondering what it would have been ruled if he'd been a white guy. Yikes.[/spoiler]

This movie means a lot to me, and I identify very closely with it. I feel like I understood the director/writer/exec. producer's vision so clearly, and it is a truly beautiful way of looking at the ups and downs of life. Not many people seemed to have had the same intimacy with this movie that I did, but I watch it with the people closest to me nonetheless to see the way they interpret it (and me, by extension). I think this movie has a lot to say about a lot of things, without using many words. Hopefully it will touch many others the same way.

I went into this blind, but as soon as it was over, I instantly knew I witnessed something special.

This is gonna be hard to talk about since the movie doesn’t follow a conventional narrative. Although I believe that these type of movies will stay with you much longer, as the emotional connecti More

Best film of the year by far. Beautifully crafted, singularly envisioned, stunningly evocative and tear-jerkingly real and heartbreaking. For once, a film that portrays my generation as real people with real issues instead of caricatures. The acting is phenomenal, the cinematography is drenched in c More
