A More Artist Palo Alto

This is kind of the perfect movie for an art student. It has all the emotions of Palo Alto, but it's extremely stylized in a way that brings a different look to the same old "teenage sadness." Some of these shots are completely unforgettable. The main story also feels like a messed up slice of life that Franco is oddly very good at writing. Though he didn't write the screenplay, his characters and stories are memorable and it feels like I'm seeing stories from "California Childhood" come to life. Very beautiful film.

Shows initial promise but doesn't really come to much

Seems a bit like a student film, I know James Franco is in it but he's held film-classes and stuff so it's not unreasonable to think that he was asked to appear in a couple scenes by his students.

Now that's not necessarily a bad thing, and initially it shows some promise but it doesn't amount to a whole much

It does feel rather realistic though, the characters do talk and act like a lot of youths do and act like morons for no particular reasons half the time just like many youths do. The ending was extremely out of the blue though.

And there isn't a whole lot of material to connect with, the plot despite it's realistic nature isn't deeply constructed enough and they could have made one of the characters a bit more likable perhaps where as with this none really are.

But it's still not enough for me to write off the directors and writers completely for the future with this being their debut full length feature film, I think their best work is to come though, everyone have to start somewhere and it's not absolutely terrible by any means.

I just saw the poster for this and realised it's actually based on James Franco's memoir book Palo Alto stories, just like 'Palo Alto (2013)' was so if that's what draws you to want to watch this I'd suggest watching that instead cause that's far better and a more complete piece of work.

Really effective and well-done

I can't believe this film was an academy nominee. It's the heart-boring story of a spoiled white boy who smokes weed all day, but isn't satisfied with a life of entitlement. So, one day after not really trying to do anything or ever trying to change his life, he decides it's not worth it and jumps off a bridge.

In order for this to be considered a legitimate review, I'm required to write ten lines about this movie. However, given the content of the film, that's a daunting challenge. I wonder when it is that our poor character finds the strength to almost kill his family (but is ultimately too weak to even do that)--was it when he was wishing he could be with the blonde girl? Was it when he wasn't attending class? Was it when he wasn't practicing skateboarding? Or, was it when he was smoking weed that he was hit with the great epiphany that his life actually doesn't matter to himself or to the audience?

I guess we'll never know and this film doesn't seem to want to answer that question.

With a hipster soundtrack and cameo appearances by Cole of The Black Lips as the drug dealer, this film will be the whatever of the whatsit thing that whatchamacallit, you know? Chyeah.
