astygianelysium's rating of the film Beautiful Boy

An unspectacular disappointment buoyed by little Tim's face (as prismatic as ever) and its soundtrack (whose power comes totally independent of the film itself). It doesn't even succeed in being emotionally manipulative, because the acting is just so desperately decontextualized. So, too, is the upper-middle-class addict narrative, so pretty that you figure even real-life rich addicts must have it uglier than this.
