The Dangerous Lives of Altar Boys 
The Folly of Youth
3/4 stars

Oh, the folly of youth. I love it when it runs amok in unconventional teen dramas. I must admit that I did enjoy this film a lot primarily because of Emile Hirsch (I'm quickly becoming a really big fan). According to some critics' reviews, the animation is too distracting and it seemed like the film is trying to become something it's not. I disagree because the animation symbolizes what the characters were going through, things that they can't explain using words. I also think that the animation is supposed to be that integral part of youth that the characters try to hold on to, especially when their problems got tougher and more "real." Without the animated sequences, I think this film would've been reduced to one Saturday morning to the next. Therefore, the animation made this film richer. If one is a fan of films that deal with the loss of characters' innocence, this is a pretty good pick.
