Mysterious Skin

Next time I see a film described as "an unconventional love story about child sex abuse and alien abduction", I'll remember not to take along a pack of corned beef.

The good news is that Greg Araki's finally discovered how to tell a story. But did it have to be so horrible that a lesbian couple fled sobbing from the cinema during the pederasty-fisting-threesome?

Interesting casting: The kid from 3rd Rock, young Alan Tracey from Thunderbirds, and Dawn from Buffy.

Not exactly. You said it was moving, disturbing but sensitively handled.

You didn't warn me I'd be traumatised.
