Michael Marino’s review published on Letterboxd:
Letterboxd/Film Twitter in a nutshell:
Mom: Hey Michael who is this Luca, is he a new friend of yours?
Me: No Why?
Mom: Because for the last two nights I’ve woken up to you shouting that name in your sleep at 3 o clock in the morning.
Me: Oh sorry mom, yeah he is the director of that movie you watched on cable a couple of weeks ago Call Me By Your Name, yeah mom I’d do anything for him
Mom: So Mike, would you jump off a cliff if this Luca told you to do so?
Me: Well yesterday morning I did put my penis in a peach for him, so I’d be up for anything at this point.
Mom: Oh Jesus Michael, not this shit again I thought we were passed this type of behavior. I can’t handle another incident like the Lady Bird fiasco that happened last December.
Me: What Lady Bird fiasco?
Mom: You don’t remember the gas station?
Me: No I don’t?
Mom: Do I really need to explain it to you again?
Me: Yeah sorry I forgot?
Mom: Okay I'll tell you one more fucking time. Well, last Christmas on the way home from your Aunt's Christmas party you made me stop on the way back at a gas station.
Me: Yeah so fucking what?
Mom: Let me finish goddammit. Well, next thing you know you tell me that I have to stop the car screaming at me that you had to pee and that you couldn't hold it till we got to the house.
Me: Mom get to the Point!
Mom: Okay, well one-minute later I park the car, you got out, and I glance overseeing you walking into the store. Well, next thing you know 2 minutes later I see you walking out of the store with a bag full of two packs of cigarettes, four 15 dollars scratch tickets, and an issue of Playgirl in your hand.
Me: So what?
Mom: Michael Stephen Marino, you fucking spent all of your Christmas money that your grandma gave you on useless junk!
Me: Well yeah it was for Greta.
Mom: For Greta? Michael what is fucking wrong with you, she doesn’t even know that you exist!
Me: YES SHE DOES!
Mom: And why a playgirl? Like I didn't even know that they fucking even made Playgirl anymore, what the fuck! And Mike if you were gay you would have told me years ago, are you, Mike?
Me: Hey Mom don’t be a Republican
