Y Tu Mamá También

Y Tu Mamá También ★★★★

In which Alfonso Cuarón resuscitates the unmistakable freshness and cockiness of the French New Wave for his coming-of-age-sex-comedy-road-movie sensation. It's impressive how well this movie performed in the box office, in spite of the graphic sex/drug use and dumb title: "and your mother too!" The leads are all incredible and the threesome's drunk climax at the bar induced a visceral reaction from me. Emotionally rich, psychologically honest, and deeply funny; excluding a couple of hiccups near the start, Y tu mamá también is a success on nearly every level. Deserves an immediate rewatch.
