Exhilarating. Devastating.
3 September 2018 | by troy-boultonSee all my reviews

Cracking with the electrifying potential of a forbidden attraction, this often bleak film will warm you with the energy bound up in those first stolen kisses, the thrill of first furtive glances at a hot rippling body, the shuddering tingle of a first touch. If you let it, Skyscrapers will carry you away in its slowly building rhythm, the asymmetry of the lead character's life jolting you as he tries to reconcile the fire of his desires with the cold harshness of his reality. The haters in these reviews seem to forget that not everyone lives the experience of a comfortable, well adjusted middle class life. This film is no anachronism, nor is it throwback; ugliness still abounds in our world, and this film is a reminder that everyone deserves the freedom to find beauty.
