(no subject)

Went to see XXY last night, with vjbseven and doseybat. Enjoyed. I mean, any film featuring Collapse ) is ok by me. Um, no. I mean, it was a sensitive portrayal of an intersex kid, Alex, who is fast approaching puberty, and the varying reactions of family and others. The only major quibbles I would have is the misleading name of the film (as Klinefelter's does not do that - they would have done better to keep the original short story name, "Cinismo"), and I'm certain the ultrasound bit was nonsense. But otherwise, good film.
