A difficult one.

Well, I'm not the guy that gets upset because every little thing and I really wanted to like the movie, but "Beautiful Boy" has definitely a few faults.

Firstly, the editing (especially in the first half) is very confusing. The flashbacks are so mixed up it's hard to understand. The dialogues were also cut very short what brings me to the next point.

It wasn't that easy to build an emotional relationship with the characters. I mean it wasn't the casts fault: Steve Carell is the highlight of the whole movie, Timothée Chalamet is brilliant and Maura Tierneys performance is very good too, but to me it wasn't enough to connect. The very usual story also seemed to be a bit too superficial. I know the movie is based on the memoirs of the two main characters but together with the postcard pictures and the sad Indie music (something I usually like), it felt like the movie is very close to a parody of itself.

All in all, it may sound worse than it actually is, it's a solid movie, but that's it.

6.5/10
