300 From The First Decade Of The New Millennium (300 movies items)

"While there are many changes that comes with the coming of age, the hardest has to be the psychological. Reality tends to hit hard at this point in any young person's stage of growth, but especially if life decides to throw some of it's hardest knocks at this same time. And it's during times like this that a pliable adolescent mind can become easy prey for anyone with more predatory motives. Unless, amidst the chaos, that young person can find a way to deal with the barraging uncertainties of th"

Amazing Underrated Obscure Bizarre Films PART 10 (50 movies items)

"Oh to be a young boy and meet pedophile Brian Cox who claims to be the best cocksucker on the east coast or something like that. But anyway, stirring and raw view of male adolescence surviving an onslaught of life that is coming at him from all directions. "

Dear Cinema Diary - Vol 3 E7 - July 2012 (27 movies items)

" Gritty coming to age drama. It was a 'passable film' but nothing that truly sparked my interest or that I felt was noteworthy."

Total Film's 50 Best Gay Movies (50 movies items)

"Grubbing drama meets touching love story here, as Howie (Dano), who may as well be an orphan for all the good his father does, falls in with a gang and robs the house of ex-Marine Big John (Cox). The melodramatic climax is overwrought, but debut writer-director Michael Cuesta has fashioned a fascinating character study nonetheless."

3003 Movies Into the Golden Age!!!...so far? (3003 movies items)

"Directed by Michael Cuesta An unusual gay themed coming of age story that deserves more attention. With Paul Dano in his feature film debut and Brian Cox giving one of his most 'stellar' leading performances, this film is nearly forgotten now cause it had the most unfortunate bad luck to be one of the most groundbreaking taboo films ever released to theaters and they did it ON September 11th (even though that was a 'Tuesday'?) according to what I've heard. As of this writing I still don't know "
