Me: A24, why have you terrified me so much with this movie & your other horror movies?
A24: 🎶BECAUSE WE’RE A24, & LIFE IS A FUCKING NIGHTMARE!🎶
(Seriously, though. This is the scariest film I have ever seen in my entire life).
I might as well say this… I’m bi.
I’ve been out as bi since March. In fact, Love, Simon was the film that led me to realize that I was bi. When I saw it, I saw something similar to how I felt (minus the blackmail part, of course). I didn’t feel ashamed about being bi, like how Simon didn’t feel ashamed about being gay. I was just afraid to tell the people closest to me, out of fear that…
The performances are great, the direction’s very good, the cinematography’s excellent, & the soundtrack’s amazing, but the screenplay is an absolute disaster, as it’s incredibly bland, hard-to-follow, & doesn’t tell the whole story of its titular figure. As a Detroiter & as a film lover, I’m very disappointed by this film.
Also… fuck Rick Snyder for cutting the film tax incentives in Michigan. If he didn’t do that, this probably would’ve been filmed all in Detroit, & not in Cleveland.
