Saw Y tu mamá también tonight. In my end-of-semester cultural isolation, I hadn't heard of it, and I walked into the theater not knowing what to expect. The IMDB comments are mainly positive and repetitive, though not quite on the scale of Slashdot. Those which were negative seemed to want the movie to be more than it was—more serious, better, and more representative of their ideal of Mexican cinema. The movie mainly got me thinking about portrayals of adolescence, and their effects on reality. Certainly, no conclusion is forthcoming as I sit here in the darkness.
