Mysterious Skin

Mysterious Skin ★★★★

I wish there was some way for us to go back and undo the past. But there wasn't. There was nothing we could do.”

Count me in as another person absolutely wrecked because of the ending. So devastating. Its hard to talk about this film because the subject matter is absolutely horrifying. For the most part I found myself more keen on knowing about the characters rather than the “mystery” of the plot which shows how well written the film was. I was quite disturbed by many of the events that occur during the entire film, a particular scene traumatized me if I'm being honest.

A very thought provoking film that I will think about for a while. I watched it completely blind due to recommendations, and was just shocked at everything the film tackled. I doubt I will ever watch it again.
