In elevating bawdy teen farce to political metaphor without squeezing the fun out, Alfonso Cuarón has pulled off a nice little miracle.
Like watching an American teen-sex comedy through a glass darkly.
The eroticism in Cuaron’s road movie (which broke all box-office records in Mexico) is the real deal: tactile, sexy, psychologically charged.
Teems with pot smoke, body parts and profane outbursts -- you ride a giggly wave throughout, jokes and turn-ons and shocking sights alternating in buoyant fashion.
There is plenty to inflame in this picture and nothing to corrupt. [18 Mar 2002. p.152]
Give yourself away to this movie and you'll be glad you did.
