MOVIE REVIEW: We Are Your Friends

We Are Your Friends is an attempt to bring the electronic dance music (EDM) culture to the screen and build an emotional narrative around it that extends just beyond the pulsing beats. PHOTO| COURTESY

What you need to know:

  • The surreal moment is seen through the eyes of Cole, who is high on PCP. That moment is so vivid that everything, even the paintings, come to life simultaneously with a throbbing beat.

  • And then the movie stalls. We Are Your Friends is not a fast-paced movie. The action takes time to build up and breaks down even before the audience gets to enjoy the few peaks in the movie.

  • But the relationships built between Cole and his high school friends piece the movie together and are worth sticking by and watching the movie through to the end.
