WAVES (2021) Tribeca 2021

This is a lovely short film about a deaf African America teen heading to his prom who stops by a barber shop to get a wave haircut. The place is packed except for a newbie barber who no one will go to. He takes a seat and…

This is a great little film that is just a giant ball of emotion. It’s a beautifully handled tale that is told in sound and image I such away that it makes us understand how our hero feels. The truth of the matter is the sound of this film is so killer it’s a shame that short films don’t get technical Oscar wards because this maybe the first time I’ve ever felt like I was experiencing a hearing problem. Yes the recent Sound of Metal  does something similar, but this is more direct and visceral.

Highly recommended.
