2012 in Film: #66

Y Tu Mamá También (2001) | Directed by Alfonso Cuarón

Grade: C

Thoughts: A film that tries so hard to be a mediation on life and pleasure and desire, but comes off as a very bad coming-of-age story where no one actually comes of age. So much teen angst, but none of the tenderness or emotional potency to follow up with it. Its screenplay, despite the interruptions (which are, personally, reminiscent of Wes Anderson), is full of incoherent profanity, that just becomes obnoxious after a half hour.
