... its hallucinatory imagery anchored by realistically profane teen dialogue and a tragic LGTBQ subtext.

Adolescence is not endlessly fascinating.

The young cast give it a good crack but cannot overpower the weight of contrivance.

A movie that just feels shy and not willing to make the viewer comprehend its difficult subject and ideal premise. [Full review in Spanish].

I haven't even addressed the visuals, which do rank up there with the finest of Jackson and Del Toro's work.

Boys in the Trees is a wonderful love letter to Halloween that explores friendship, growing up, and death. Magnificent to look at and devastating, it is a masterpiece.
