“Watch All the Boys Love Mandy Lane movie” this is the first film with director Jonathan Levine and his writer Jacob Forman. Labeled as horror because of its pitch film, it moves away from its first minutes of ultra marked the basic slashed by treatment of the original scheme. Here there is no masked killer pursuing bimbos to massacre the drill, but a sensitive and emotional approach, a hundred leagues from the clichés of the genre.
The first scene , paralyzing reveals carefully and intelligently the statement of intent Levine and Forman : if the narrative construction of a horror movie lambda, “All the Boys Love Mandy Lane” arises primarily as an attempt to illustrate the eternal theme of the passage – painful – to adulthood . A popular theme in the American independent cinema and here is a very special resonance.
By focusing on describing the behavior of these teenagers ultimately stereotyped, Levine touches on an essential point of this drama: the unconsciousness and innocence of youth in loss of reference and subject to all the temptations. By focusing on seemingly innocuous details, the filmmaker manages to interfere with the immediate experience of these young adults looking for love and excitement , a unique lyricism this kind of film. A moving and empathetic spleen, which only accentuates the cruelty of the events portrayed.
By making his killer a silhouette rather than a real character , Levine found somewhere Carpenter ‘s first “Halloween” , and uses it as a catalyst shameful impulses that haunt the gilded youth of America triumphant . Victim of their behavior , the characters stifle even within the framework trapped in a web they have woven themselves : cowardly, spineless and sometimes downright unpleasant , they eventually leave their human form to become the corpses relief that accomplice soon eclipse the image, too busy to wrap her hot camera intimacy fresh and beautiful Mandy Lane.
Whatever ultimately the final twist agreed quite opposite of what has preceded , then likes to cover his tracks : socially the emotions and questions of adolescence have been treated with such freshness , such amazing aplomb, such a lack of modesty in the pursuit of pure emotion and simply so true . If all the boys love Mandy Lane, it’s up to you to accept the thunderbolt.
