It will stay with you forever- powerful, disturbing, and brilliant

Joseph Gordon-Levitt gives an unforgettable performance in this unnerving tale of self-acceptance and self-destruction.

aside from a jolting pace, flawless

A brave film and director! Outstanding performance by Joseph Gordon-Levitt!

A college freshman who believes he was abducted by aliens searches for his old Little League teammate, now a male prostitute, thinking he holds the clue to the mysterious events of his childhood. Something like MIDNIGHT COWBOY with a bit of "The X Files" thrown in, this painful and graphic drama explores how similar traumas can produce opposite effects.

the heavy subject of the film is portrayed in the best way possible, not excessive amounts but just enough to leave it circling around like a black crow in your mind for days

Nu e chiar de vazut dar Gordon-Levitt rupe
January 29, 2014
A young Joseph Gordon-Levitt fists a guy.
January 23, 2014
Con un muy joven Joseph Gordon-Levitt, Mysterious Skin es una de esas películas raras del cine independiente en EU con muchos aciertos, y atrevidas, pero que no terminan de ser tan contundentes porque la propia ideología social se los impide.

A disturbing drama that is memorable to everyone who see's it. "Mysterious Skin" is not for the squeamish

Sweet and disturbing at the same time.

Gregg Araki's one magnificent turn as a serious filmmaker. This is one of the very few times I've seen an adaptation of a book surpass its source material. And, Scott Heim's book was amazing. However, Araki's film is even better. This is a brutal study of the open wounds left behind by childhood sexual abuse. The performances by all actors are exceptional, but it is the star turn by Joseph Gordon-Levitt which will forever sear into your brain. This is a rough but important film. Gritty and realistic, despite the horrors -- Araki and Heim manage to find a bit of hope. Unforgettable and a highly under appreciated cinematic work.

Disturbing, but amazing.

I'll snort this.
I'll snort it again.
Like a slut.

Araki deals with the horrific subject matter in delicate ways that steer clear of sensationalism and cliche, while delivering superb performances headed by an oscar-worthy performance by Joseph Gordon-Levitt.
December 19, 2013
espectacular! Recomendadísima.
December 16, 2013
takes the subject matter head on without compromise and delivers a moving story. Such a great performance by Joseph Gordon-Levitt. Some of the minor roles are a little cliche and over acted but its pulled through by its lead.
December 15, 2013
a little too difficult to watch.
November 14, 2013
Challenging and disturbing subject matter, delicately handled. Two very different teenagers paths cross and they soon unravel a horrible mystery that effects them both. Brilliant performances all round. It was always very evident Gordon-Levitt had the talent. You'll probably only ever watch it once. Be prepared.
