    ★★★★½

    This quiet pastoral horror movie takes place in the 1960s, but there's only one shot that gives that away, and if not for that shot, it'd be easy to assume it was set sometime in the 1800s. The feature directorial debut of Sergio G. Sanchez, the writer of The Orphanage (one of my all-time favorite horror movies) and The Impossible (which I still haven't seen), Marrowbone is visually gorgeous, an Old Masters painting brought to life with natural light in…

    Sign me up as the apostate that just doesn't appreciate this one, that doesn't really understand why a long, rambling, sleepy movie about a disconnected, disaffected, insanely rich and privileged teenager moping around until he gets laid is so moving to people. There are better romances, better gay coming-of-age movies, better summer-fling stories, and movies where I don't get really really distracted by watching a dude gut a peach in his bed with his bare hands and then fuck it, making an immense mess for someone else to clean up. I will fight the world on this one.
