    By the end of Mysterious Skin, I felt physically exhausted but I also felt satisfied at the way it all falls into place.

    Araki is trying to work from the inside out; and he captures feelings about sexual exploitation that I've never seen onscreen--not all of them negative.

    Corbet emerges as an actor of sensitivity and depth, but it’s Gordon-Levitt who steals every scene as the damaged, destructive but ultimately sympathetic rent boy.
  4. Mostly, Mysterious Skin creeps you out, and not in any kind of fun way. There's an artfulness to it, but it's hard to imagine many viewers actually using the term "enjoyed" or "entertained" in conjunction with it.
  5. Dull film about pedophilia that fails to shed any light on the topic.

    People can't face the truth. Araki didn't create the alien idea. It is 0% fictional. Maybe the most incredible story of the last 10 years. ThePeople can't face the truth.

    One of the most harrowing and strangely touching movies I've seen in many years. The writing and acting are equally terrific.

    I guess most people would find this movie too disturbing, but I think it is just right.
