All the teenage deviants of the 1990s are orphans of Gregg Araki. The director of Mysterious Skin and Nowhere still shoots, mostly for Netflix series, but don't make us think it's the same thing. While he has many disciples, none have come close to the superb rawness of his style like John Swab with Candy Land. The film crosses a veritable thematic minefield in a series of interludes, touches the sublime in the disgusting, goes from laughter to fright without blinking. This miraculous tonal balance extends of course to its fantastic cast of actors, all on the same wavelength between bis and auteur cinema.
