    The thing I like about Cuaron is how grounded his films are. Prisoner of Azkaban has the most naturalistic acting of any of the HP films, Children of Men makes what seems like a biblically over-the-top apocalypse story into a brutal, humanist experience, and Y Tu Mamá También is, I think, one of the most important films for any teenage boy to watch, based solely on how he discusses sexuality. This, however, feels to me like a well-shot, foreign language version of a shitty SNL-alumni comedy. And I’m quite peeved about it.
