Everyone can find something in the movie “Boyhood” with which to identify.
Perhaps that was the goal.
Certainly, though, that’s why the movie did nothing for me.
I’d prefer to make things that you either love or don’t appreciate.
Shreds of appeal for the masses? I couldn’t even get past the first hour.
Moral of the story: Don’t be like “Boyhood.” Resist temptation to make something for the masses. Appreciation is not enough.
