Mysterious Skin ★★★★★

Jesus fucking Christ, I wanted to curl up into a ball and just weep the rest of the night after watching this.

Deals with some of the most difficult subject matter imaginable in an unflinching, brutally honest fashion, without needing to either sensationalize or depict in a distasteful manner. It's raw emotion, stewed to perfection by Joseph Gordon Levitt and Brady Corbet's beautiful performances, and Gregg Araki's flawless, empathetic direction.

I need to lie down.
