CRITICS OF "Mysterious Skin"
Cinema Writer

August 21, 2010

a bizarre, beguiling coming-of-age drama
Detroit Free Press

July 22, 2005

Araki's best film in a long time.
Old School Reviews

September 15, 2009

treads harrowing ground without falling into the pit of cliché
Boston Globe

June 24, 2005

The usual Araki elements are here (hustlers, rebels, uproar, the absurd), but now he appears to be working with focus and compassion.
Empire Magazine Australasia

November 07, 2012

By exploring the taboo topic of paedophilia in a humanist manner that avoids sensationalising or heavy-handed verdicts, Araki's eloquent, sensitive film actually presents an indictment far stronger than any moral grandstander ever could.
Bangkok Post

Like most good films, this one demands something from you, not just you from it. Some may run for cover, or for the exit, but those who stick around this strange and rich film will be sent out floating.
Miami Herald

July 29, 2005

Gone is the gloomy nihilism of The Doom Generation and The Living End, replaced by a melancholy, but hopeful, affection toward people with the capacity to overcome tremendous psychological trauma.
Philadelphia Inquirer

July 21, 2005

Manages to deal with its raw, awful subject matter in ways that are both challenging and illuminating.

March 07, 2014

Contains a few flat notes of community participation, but Araki locates all the necessary surges of hopelessness and misguided desire, ending victorious in his quest to adapt Scott Heim's provocative novel.
Arizona Republic

July 21, 2005

The audience has gotten the point roughly 90 minutes before the characters do.
The Dissolve

March 17, 2014

[...] For a movie about something as painful as child sexual abuse, Mysterious Skin doesn't repel. There's an allure to the images, which are as carefully posed and framed as figures in a softly illuminated dollhouse.
Dallas Morning News

July 01, 2005

This is a challenging and ultimately moving film that deserves to find a like-minded audience.
