Unfriended

One of the most powerful and revealing moments in Alfonso Cuaron’s Y Tu Mama Tambien comes when life long best friends Julio (Gael Garcia Bernal) and Tenoch (Diego Luna) reveal to one another that they’ve been sleeping with each others girlfriends. This insight  forces the viewer to reevaluate everything that preceded it, while at the same time turning the film from what was up until that point a funny road trip to a melancholy experience that will alter these two young men’s lives.

That a gimmicky horror film attempts to do that with a game of Never Have I Ever is formidable. That it mostly succeeds is memorable.
