Coming out of the closet is amazing, stupid, scary and magical. Either you have a cheap IKEA closet or a magnificent ebony wood closet, it's always a journey leaving it behind to embrace freedom. Show this to all the kids!
The film is cute: a bit too clunky on the family drama; super-duper soundtrack; lovely colours; and that kiss scene was very steamy... even if Oscar's apathy was bugging me a little. The film could have amped up the volume on a couple of key moments. All the symbolisms and metaphors were a nice touch, but... who the fuck casts Isabella Rossellini as a talking hamster?!
Not entirely original, but it's an engaging cinematic experience. Connor Jessup steals the whole damn show with an impressive, visceral, and sexy performance. The musical montages felt like Dolan copycatting (Dolan himself copying Kar-wai) and the body horror felt Cronenberg-esque, but the elements played off each other nicely.
A very unique and entirely confident film with a kind of confused idea of who it's audience is. It plays like a kids movie with the hamster but the rest of the subject matter is AO. Some beautiful psychedelic sequences hold it together but it relies too heavily on the soundtrack. 2.5 stars
worked wonderfully on many levels, although the big dramatic moments felt way too intense for what was actually happening. and i'm still not sure about the speaking hamster. but anyway: best trailer of the year
gay movie for gay people. gay - the cancer of Western man's mind. It's better to see a movie where a girl makes blowjob to a dog which is ruining ralationship with her boyfriend. gay drama is useless, pathetic and passe - BJ to a dog comedy is much better for the genre
