i think i can say honestly that i hate that film.
came across 'mysterious skin' by accident.
i have posted warnings against it elsewhere on this site.
there was nothing wrong with it technically or artistically.
it was just too much, and then it got worse.
i should have turned it off, but some part of me believed there would be some closure or justice but no.
it was like being raped again.
strongest flashback i have ever had in my life.
i can't say how far back it set me,
but it felt like starting from scratch.
in retrospect, perhaps i needed it,
but i sure didn't want it.
i had no warning whatsoever.
thought it was going to be a movie about alien abduction and WHAM!
like a punch in the face, really.
