You know that feeling you get when you pick up a family photo album and start reminiscing about the past. This movie is that feeling.

I don't understand the hype of this movie. the only amazing part is that the film literally chose one actor and filmed his development or more like his transition to adulthood, but I don't get the plot. was there even a plot? It was so boring, and it dragged all the way to the end.

this movie really beaten my expectation,the whole 165mns i sat here didn't feel like i'm watching a movie at all felt more like a reality one,i mean this guy directed for 12 years and gave us only 165 minutes just minutes and it was pretty amazing,i'm stocked to actually have the pleasure of seeing this honest liberation piece-of-art i's a freaking masterpiece and the fact it have Ethan Hawke in it just better. i really liked the story line and the cast the chemistry and acts was in the moment. "Moment Seize Us" indeed!
