It's all a bit too ludicrous to be sensuous or unsettling, or ultimately all that insightful.
an exciting sail on the waters of gender fluidity that energetically skewers any notion of the binary.
I was drawn into its hermetically sealed world of oddness - and Mandico pays attention to character to a degree that experimental film-makers often don't bother with.
Mandico leaves nothing on the table here, and for that I must give him credit. It doesn't all work, but when it does, it's something to behold.
Jean Cocteau meets David Lynch with a good dash of Colette in Bertrand Mandico's sensationally trippy 2018 release, Wild Boys.
Though Mandico's debut feature may seem to be a clever and provocative tale about gender identity and eradicating toxic masculinity, it's pure gender essentialism.
"The Wild Boys" is full of inventive and imaginative elements, which counterbalance the lack of plot.... Mandico focuses on creating a heady, dreamlike atmosphere that is both beautiful and disturbing.
The Wild Boys is a supremely assured piece of craftsmanship... but for all the maturity of the command on display, there is little about it to suggest it was made by an artist who was trying to put adolescence behind him.
Deliberately, alluringly unstable and destabilizing, 'The Wild Boys' is made even more turbulent by its superabundance of references and inspirations.
There are pieces of this puzzle that beguile, and the whole endeavor is commendable for its audacity.
With his feature debut, Bertrand Mandico has created a work of art that's as full of angst as it is horny, a queer fever dream that's as much a nightmare as it is an erotic fantasy.
Gorgeous, bizarre, and unique enough to merit checking out, The Wild Boys is one of the most refreshing debuts of 2018.
