"Sain uuden bd-soittimen, jonka nikkaroin aluevapaaksi. Tätä ominaisuutta pitikin sitten heti testata. Joten päädyin katsomaan sunnuntain krapulassa Arakin väkevintä teosta. Voisin kirjoittaa tästä kaiken, koska kyseessä on minulle yksi rakkaimmista elokuvista. Mysterious Skin sai minut reilu kymmenen vuotta sitten ymmärtämään, että elokuva on enemmän kuin popcorn-viihdettä.
