Director: Elijah Bynum
Starring: Timothee Chalamet, Maika Monroe, Alex Rose, Maia Mitchell, William Fichtner
This atmospheric visually pleasing film will be the most beautiful film you’ll see all summer. Cinematographer Javier Julia does a splendid job in capturing Timothee Chalamet’s character coming of age. The colours are popping. The movement is thrilling. He’s one to look out for.
Performances are faultless but story is scattered. Sometimes we watch films for the story but sometimes films are to be watched to admire the beauty in how they’re shot and that’s definitely the case with Elijah Bynum’s directorial debut.
The film definitely has style but that’s all it has. A tighter story and this could have been a hit. I would recommend watching this film if you’re an aspiring cinematographer, you can inevitably learn from it.
