Had I seen this film when I was 10, I can only imagine my response would have been putrid. I say this 20 years later, knowing full well who I was and who I’ve come to be. I was more or less, just as uncomfortable as these two young men in my curiosity of the same sex.
Luckily, I did view this film in my 30’s, and can objectively respect sex in film regardless of gender. Life is short and the same can be said of love. This love affair is primal, it’s childish, it’s impassioned, and it’s beautiful.
