You obviously like confronting cinema, which is fine.

I like full on movies as well but this kind of subject matter is a turn off for me.

Dude, you're fucked in the head!

I would probably watch it if given to me.

I'll probably watch it. The same way I watched The Woodsman and Dahmer. With hope that I might get some insight as to why some people choose to do these things. At least, that's why I think I watch it.

I finally had a chance to check this movie out today. It is your typical arthouse fair, slow and mundane, but very effective. The director (much like his peers, think Haneke) delivers a simple film with minimal dialogue. This "less is more" approach ends up being a very deep and repulsive look into the mind of a pedaphile. The movie never becomes exploitive, which in a way almost makes it more powerful (at one point I paused the film in disgust just to call my 10 year son and warn him about the dangers of strangers). The ending was a bit of a disappointment, but overall I enjoyed it. Michael got under my skin in a bad (but good) way and delivered just what I wanted from a film like this.
