A significant DJ needs “some talent, a laptop, and a track,” says Cole in ‘We Are Your Friends.’
That may not be excellent publicity for EDM (Electronic dance music). But Cole, you see, likes to talk, bold, psychedelic, including explaining how the “perfect timing” 128 BPM (beats per minute), a DJ controls the entire circulatory system of the listeners.
When Cole speaks of the lower parts of the body, the camera moves even more kindly to a woman’s rear. But words are not even the worst problem of We Are Your Friends, which is supposedly about a DJ “talent” like Cole, his many friends; their little lives complement inaccessible Hollywood, his drug and party-hopping; once upon a time, a famous DJ, his pretty but neglected girlfriend, and his alcoholism.
There are parties, inside and outside, lots of dancing, and plenty of rotating bodies. When a young DJ calls an abandoned girlfriend, you know what happens. So once the above has engaged in nothing at all – including a reseller’s unscrupulous real estate – it resolves itself as something will be a new mystery.
There me away from knowing about the music that moves these people is something else. Max Joseph, the story writer, and director have adapted Richard Silverman’s story into this film. So, there is a kernel of an idea here that Efron at least tries to perpetuate their eyes look wounded.
Cole and his three friends hanging just outside the circle of Hollywood who wants to enter, an aspiring DJ, and petty crooks get paid for bringing people into nightclubs of events such as a party where the success of James Reed (Bentley) is deejaying. If you need to be doing something with their lives is a question that the four friends only rarely raise and then fall quickly.
Your friend, Reed, at the exit of clichés, is essentially a good and sad person despite being battered and drunk. Cole, however, has a way out of this life given to him when Reed takes him under their wings. The only conversation we are going somewhere with this is so rudely interrupted.
Bentley will play very well as an honest artist, tired but not bitter. In the all-white mansion of Reed (a dangerous choice has given Reed’s drunkenness), Cole meets Sophie (Ratajkowski). She is a “Stanford dropout” who now works as a personal assistant for Reed, offending everyone who says she is essentially much older to be his girlfriend.
Joseph, who has directed short films and documentaries before, but directing a film for the first time, brings several cultural frills detention, especially in an art gallery where a junkie, Cole imagines dripping paint art pieces and climbing up the audience. However, José or the film is not bold enough to “let go” – another suggestion of Cole. It’s not so bad, but we know the feeling.
We Are Your Friends is a movie in which the protagonist knows how to impress everyone with his music, and you wait and wait for something to blow your mind, but sadly, that never happens.
