well crafted ART

Reviewer: Bucky BarnsDate: 2014-07-22

This indie movie is close to perfect; It depicts a boy growing into a man in a very personal way. This story of a child's life feels natural and the great script adds to the experience. the only let down is the sometimes off child acting.

Boyhood

Reviewer: filmfan1Date: 2014-07-22

Only watch if you like this kind of movie. For me this was only marginally more interesting to watch than Rachel Getting Married with Anne Hathaway. At times I was wishing for the movie to end. Any deeper message was drowned out during the 3 hours.

Hidden Gem

Reviewer: Drakey_boiDate: 2014-07-21

The coming of age film is just outstanding;combining the right amount of humour, heartbreak and memorable moments. The magic of this film creeps up on you and leaves you blown away. This film isn't to be missed, it's truly spectacular!

Utter brilliance

Reviewer: Reviewer101Date: 2014-07-16

It's rare that a movie touches this deeply. Like seeing your entire life flashing before your eyes. Very funny in parts and deeply moving, but not in a tear-jerk way. A mix of grandeur, eloquence and everyday-ness. It's brilliance creeps up on you
