Critic Reviews for Beautiful Boy
To its credit, Beautiful Boy doesn't reassure its audience with the false comfort of easy answers. But it still feels, ultimately, like an earnest and relatively minor wrinkle on a stark, emotional, all-too-familiar story.
Parents will feel heard by this movie in a way that few other films have tried. Everyone else should go for the kid, who's a rocket taking off. You want to be able to say you were there when it happened.
Van Groeningen methodically demonstrates how that can count for little in the face of crystal meth, but that's the only takeaway from Beautiful Boy that felt fresh.
We begin to understand David's feelings of constant frustration at these dreary cycles of addiction, and while that might be exactly what the film (admirably) intends, there's no denying it makes for a vexing viewing experience.
Chalamet is so good it's worth seeing "Beautiful Boy" for his work alone.
