trying to explain that I love this film NOT in an "Elio and Oliver are goals," fetishizing gay men, armie hammer apologist way
but in a "this is a predatory relationship dynamic shown from the rose-colored perspective of the one who was changed forever from it," devastating coming of age, emotionally honest, gorgeous Italian aesthetics way
