Mysterious Skin

Mysterious Skin ★★★★★

”I was his prize.”

Somehow hits harder after having read the book, which is unexpected considering how it doesn’t go as deep into detail, but everything that it leaves up for interpretation is made clearer. Gregg Araki’s style makes the story much more captivating in ways I can’t quite explain, it just feels as though it surrounds you with its dark themes and throws you into its messed up world. I honestly can’t think of a better way to depict such serious topics than what Araki did with this. It’s weirdly triggering and calming at the same time for some reason.
