So... I just watched Mysterious Skin.

Well.

Fuck.

I think this is the most emotionally disturbed by a movie that I have ever been in my life. I was actually almost crying as the credits rolled. That's never happened before.

I feel like I ought to have some kind of analytical thought, but I don't really, not beyond "...these kids." Wow. Holden Caulfield just got knocked down to third place for Characters I Most Want to Hug - well, a hug would probably be the exact opposite of helpful in this case, but characters I most want to invite in for hot cocoa and a safe place for a while.

Apologies to the flist; you guys probably have no idea what I'm on about. I promise to try to keep this kind of babbling to a minimum.

ETA: For anyone randomly coming through for whatever reason, the comments are loaded with spoilers and with potential triggers for rape & child abuse, given the subject of the film. So be aware.
