32. Y TU MAMÁ TAMBIÉN
dir. Alfonso Cuarón
world premiere 2001
U.S. release 2002
Because the film sympathizes fully with the lusts of youth, not as an abstraction but as something bodies radiate when they fuck,
move, and crave. Still, the dialogue, the character of Luisa, the visual and narrative POVs, and "peripheral" scenes
certify how much more there is to life, and to this film, than chauvinistic hedonism. A core sample of modern Mexico, styled as a buddy romp.
