The Wave

Brent McKnight @ The Last Thing I See

  • Excerpt: It feels tailor made to spark shallow philosophical musings from stoners sitting on couches rather than offering any real insight. Still, it’s fun enough, uses, but doesn’t overuse, keen psychedelic visuals, and as a debut feature, shows off Klabin’s inventive and peculiar eye.

The Wave

Gregory J. Smalley @ 366 Weird Movies

  • Excerpt: Rough patches aside, the crisp acting, inventive visuals, and speedy pace make it a trip you probably won’t regret taking.
