    If I taught a Health/Sex ed class, the entire curriculum would be to watch 3 movies, Mysterious Skin, Don Jon, and Kids

    Why i cant remember who is the guy that molested me when i was a kid but i still clearly remember what he did to me. This film is so good but makes me so depress

    this movie shows how a kid can enjoy being abused. I mean, wtf was that? This is weird as shit because i don't understand if he was abused or not. The kid was showing sexual desires for older men and masturbating thinking about them much longer before the abuse had happened. GOD... Somebody explains ??

    This movie is a haunting masterpiece that deserved more recognition when it came out. Corbet and Gordon-Levett gave Oscar worthy performances and Gregg Araki directed this movie masterfully, especially considering the subject matter. A film that will batter your emotions and leave you feeling sad no doubt.
  • Jose Mourinho 2016-02-22 18:43:56

  • Loyalty1269 2016-02-14 02:52:46
    Joseph Gordon levitt and Brady Corbet were phenomenal. Bill Sage was creepy as fuckin hell. And all I gotta say is...... Sigur Ros
  • Ayana J 2016-01-24 05:19:55

  • Felix Carter 2016-01-15 00:20:27
    Dude .....I love this movie but man if you don't at least cringe a little bit during it than I don't know what' will make you . Even the atmosphere is melancholic
  • Mazz 2016-01-07 00:48:53
    I was expecting to see a movie about aliens in a weird sci-fi fashion. Well. Fuck my expectations and my feelings I guess... Very good movie, it cover a lot of ground.
  • bunny fox 2016-01-05 16:12:53
    this film is a rare piece of cinematic art...very sad but wonderfully portrayed of how child sex abuse can ruin ones life. I can relate to Brian so much. bless all the survivors of child abuse in this world.
