      Alexandra Heller-Nicholas AWFJ.org For those open this kind of cinematic queering (not only of his characters, but of film form itself), in The Wild Boys Mandico and Löwensohn more than live up to the promise of their previous short film collaborations. Mar 12, 2019 Full Review Melissa Anderson 4Columns Deliberately, alluringly unstable and destabilizing, 'The Wild Boys' is made even more turbulent by its superabundance of references and inspirations. Nov 16, 2018 Full Review Bilge Ebiri New York Times It's all a bit too ludicrous to be sensuous or unsettling, or ultimately all that insightful. Nov 14, 2018 Full Review Juan Barquin INTO There's no clean way to describe this truly wild teenage journey disguised as an uncomfortable erotic fever dream full of phallic imagery, but it's the kind of fantasia worth diving deep into. Sep 17, 2021 Full Review Dustin Chang Floating World It plays out like a prettier, sexier Guy Maddin film. And its pan-sexual theme is not without a dash of humor. The beach fight/orgy scene complete with flying feathers and sand alone is worth the price of admission. Feb 13, 2021 Full Review Guillem Martinez Oya Cinematismo A masterpiece about the bipolarism we live in. A hallucinogen film about the influence of the gender in our society. A must of the LGTBIQ+ contemporary films [Full Review in Spanish] Rated: 5/5 Oct 15, 2019 Full Review Read all reviews

      Audience Member I liked the first half and then it went downhill Rated 2 out of 5 stars 01/24/23 Full Review Audience Member Sooo immersive, magical, hypnotizing, ambitious and original. Filmmakers should be bold like Mandico and make movies like this!
