I watched this movie almost two years ago after watching the trailer nonstop for weeks. I probably had never been excited to see a movie so much in my life. My sister was dog sitting for a family friend so I stayed the night with her and we watched it. I was in no way a movie person at that time so I had a weird perception of “indie films” and the movie looked somewhat grainy and at the time I didn’t know if it was the tv quality or the movie because maybe it was “low budget”, and for some reason that really disappointed me and negatively impacted my first viewing experience, stupidly. I know it seems too old to be doing this at that time, but I was 14 or 15 and pretty much closed my eyes for any sexual scene for the whole movie. I felt that I didn’t really get a taste of the movie and that I didn’t understand it, so ever since I’ve been wanting to rewatch. This was also the film that introduced me to Timothée Chalamet, who I’ve loved ever since, as well as Mystery of Love, which has become one of my all time favorite songs. So now I’m almost 17, and I’ve finally decided to rewatch this beautiful film. Not a lot has changed between now and then, but I definitely got this movie now more than I could’ve two years ago. It was like watching it for the first time almost. I’m honestly glad I waited this long. Almost everything about it is so peaceful. Timothée Chalamet is just such a wonderful actor, I love him so much. I use this word all the time but it truly is a simply beautiful film. This review is kind of all over the place but overall, I love this movie and I look forward to watching it over and over again.
