Beautiful imagery and sharp performances make Wild Tigers a memorable film from first-time director Cam Archer.

This is lyricism at its most extreme, at once gripping and off-putting because Archer views his characters as if he were gawking at them through the bars of a cage.
[Director] Archer isn't necessarily taking us anywhere new, but his movie's rapture is beautiful inside and out.
Wild Tigers I Have Known studiously avoids the clichés of the genre. It's also exasperatingly inconclusive. Its dreamy, enigmatic characters often fail to engage.
The filmmaker, Cam Archer, seems to be trying for a mood of hazy self-pity, which he achieves just enough to make you wish he'd get over it.
While there's something admirable in [director] Archer's attempt at making an ambient song of the self out of the protagonist's search for sexual identity (along with some heavily metaphorical mountain-lion attacks), the result is empty.
Young writer-director Cam Archer uses disjointed imagery, textures and clashing sound to create something seamlessly odd and poignantly pubescent.
The movie wears its ancestors on its sleeve -- Tarnation and My Own Private Idaho, sure, but also Kenneth Anger, Warhol, Harmony Korine.
Beautifully, I mean really beautifully, shot
If you allow yourself to be immersed in its often beautiful images and its reflective, ethereal atmosphere, it can be a memorable experience.
Archer hypothesizes that the junior high boner is the first step toward a lifetime of heartache and peer humiliation, and his argument is a vivid one.
There's just not enough psychological mustard to cover this earnest hotdog-of-a-movie about a male loner's breakout infatuation with the studmuffin of his wildest dreams.
There is talent on display here, but it is ill-used, and that makes Wild Tigers I Have Known a frustrating experience.
