    Sometimes nothing is more alienating than family.

    >>> Une oeuvre étonnante sur une famille "extraterrestre"... www.cinefiches.com

  4. grotescsetorg's rating of the film Boy

  5. Scienceofphantoms's rating of the film Boy

    An exemplary experiment in montage, the whole point being to make us wince at non-collision. The stage, theater, and audience for mourning - of the family, of the war loss, of origins, which always get mentioned matter-of-fact-ly - is the highway. And it's all convincingly portrayed through the eyes of our boy.

    Do you know what is worse than being an unwanted stepchild? If your stepmother makes you go out into traffic and try to get hit by a car so that the family can extort money from the motorists.

    Just caught it on HuluPlus. Amazing movie!

  18. Brandon Nowalk's rating of the film Boy

    Godard-level mastery of color and composition, ellipticism, freakball music cues, that alien boat scene. My unplanned vagrant double feature (with Accattone) was a success.

  19. Pedro Ponte's rating of the film Boy

    Is it creepy that Oshima made a film with this much humanity and compassion and then went on to make one where a woman chokes a man to death and then cuts off his dick? Maybe, but it's also kind of wonderful.

  20. Jesse Furgurson's rating of the film Boy

    preadolescent lifesick nonalien

  21. joey Noodles's rating of the film Boy

    A stunning masterpiece. This film has some clear allegory going on (alien society, snowmen, etc.) which is intertwined with a moving story of a disintegrating family.

  22. Coheed 2.5's rating of the film Boy

    My second Oshima film and a great film. I wish I could have a DVD copy available in the UK thought... :C

  23. Jeremy Ashlyn's rating of the film Boy

    nice response to 400 blows and a much better film. excellent use of sound.

  24. HHH's rating of the film Boy

    The last shot is incredible, as the officer reflects to 'Boy' that he got to travel on a plane, and that he must of had 'Fun' a tear rolling down his face, Boy has lost the willpower to retort, and simply agrees... eyes to the floor. Very poignant and sobering film - one of, if not Oshima's greatest achievement.
