(Because really; award season means you’re trying to winnow down the musts from the must-pass.)
Disjointed and choppy. I understand that’s probably what the director is going for, to echo the feelings of addiction and living with a loved one who’s addicted. But fabulous performances – and they are absolutely stunning – couldn’t pull me into the story. Boy is a well crafted and brilliantly acted fishbowl, with viewers staring in rather than connecting.
That house tho. That’s the dream y’all. That’s the dream.
