#123movies #fmovies #putlocker #gomovies #solarmovie #soap2day Watch Full Movie Online Free – 8-years-old Oscar Madly became traumatized. Around the same time that his mother left their family (with Oscar firmly taking his dad’s side), Oscar witnessed a gay hate crime at school that left the victim bloodied and permanently paralyzed. Ten years pass. Oscar, befriended by his talking hamster Buffy, wants to get into a special effects make-up school (using his friend Gemma as a model), and has come to realize his spiteful father’s anti-social, immature short-comings. When Oscar meets co-worker Wilder at the hardware store, sexual feelings begin to stir but accompanied by severe stomach pains (the memory of the hate crime). A farewell costume party for Wilder brings Oscar’s issues to a head, expressed sometimes in surreal terms.
Plot: A creative and driven teenager is desperate to escape his hometown and the haunting memories of his turbulent childhood.

A living breathing poem
PROS: The first thing that you need to mention with this movie is the acting. With a whole bunch of new faces you tend to assume the worst, and this was not the case here. This movie was filled with good actors, from small roles to big ones such as the main character Oscar played by Conner Jessup. Although this movie was not a horror, the strong message that the movie had was delivered in a horrific way. You really got to see the dark the scary side of being a gay kid in the closet. This was shown in a very poetic way as well. With every scene being a metaphor for something greater and all the metaphors added up to sending a strong message at the end. The final thing that I really appreciated was the transitions in the film. Each transition did more than go from one scene to the next, the transitions acted sort of like chapters in the main characters life. This gave the movie that lit bit of an extra touch.
CONS: For me the few cons are greatly overshadowed by the film as a whole, but it doesn’t mean they aren’t there. The first problem I had was the one scene with the nuts and bolts. I won’t give anything away, but this seen, although very deep and spine chilling, was very confusing. It was very brief and held no further context to the film. The other thing that bothered me was the ending. I completely understand that the ending needed to be simple to cope with the intense climax, but there is a difference between simple and boring. This movie forgot that.
One thing one can’t say about this movie is that it’s typical.
A pretty unique film, which is rarely seen in films these days.
I can’t say too much about the film because it’s sort of a mystery, wrapped around a coming of age drama story with some horror elements here and there to spice things up and on top of all that add on a talking hamster.
If I was to compare it with some other movies I would say something like a mix of Mysterious Skin meets The Perks Of Being A Wallflower meets Donnie Darko, now while it isn’t as great as those said films it isn’t too far off either, it is a competent piece of filmmaking by it’s own merit.
And well acted all across the board.
Might bump the rating up on the rewatch but we will see, 7 is still a solid rating coming from me.
