Film Review: The Spectacular Now (2013)

The Spectacular Now

The Spectacular Now dibuka dengan perkenalan karakter yang mengingatkan film-film remaja Hollywood, meski saat memasuki paruh awal, dia bergerak ke arah yang jauh lebih “gelap” dan cukup menohok. Cuma ya, kalau mau menyebutkan film mengedepankan realisme, it’s nowhere near of it.

Overall, it’s still a Hollywood fantasy about coming-of-age, inside and outside, where everybody is shine and shiny, and always have the right wit, no matter how despair they are. Plus, everything is gonna be okay in the end, ‘cause if it isn’t okay, it not the end. Right?

Semua aktris di film ini berperan cantik, Shailene Woodley, Brie Larson, Jennifer Jason Leigh hingga Mary Elizabeth Winstead yang hanya secuil.

Masalah itu ada pada Miles Teller. Probably he has this boy-next-door quality but definitely not the lead . Lagi pula karakternya sebagai sosok yang “popular” di sekolah kurang plausible. Not bad. But not convincing enough. I mean, can’t they get someone cuter? Haha.

Obviously, it’s no classic. People probably will forget this sometimes in the future. But, as teen flick. It’s passable.
