R5 I don't get the age complaints either. Here in Europe, my 15-year old girlfriends were always boasting about dating guys over twenty and kept saying how they can't wait to turn 16 to get fucked legally. And yet people lose their shit over a 17-year old guy who is about to start university in a year getting off? Talk about misplaced hand-wringing.

Do people honestly believe guys should only start having sex at the stroke of midnight when they turn 18? Because that's totally not how the human body works. I was performing on cam at 15, begging strangers to come and fuck me, while my libido was completely subdued even before I hit 18.

Having said all that, I still think it would make more business sense to age him up a year or two.

He's 17, which is the age of consent in most states. Yeah, any state where a newspaper isn't published... I personally didn't care for CMBYN anyway (definitely not my choice for a best anything), but yes, given how INCREDIBLY close it is to the headlines, a very short sighted choice.

I got that it was completed before all the Spacey/Levine/your-name-here headlines, but bizarre for the critics to trumpet the film. Definitely an unnecessary backfire.

FWIW, I thought all the acting was fine.

What's more it doesn't matter how old they look. They were 20 and 29 when they filmed. They could fuck all day and night if they wanted to and no one would be able to say anything about it. Chalamet is going to look like that for a long time unless he starts working out. He'll still be having plenty of sex with other fully grown adults I'm sure.

17 is also legal in something like 40 US states.

Surely the sign of a solid argument is when you keep needing to add to it, like R50/R54 just did.

What's more it doesn't matter how old they look

Are you actually an idiot? When you have people like Corey Feldman going around saying this promotes pedophilia, it absolutely matters. Because people will google the film, see photos like this, and make a judgement. And yes, those people are ignorant, but there are a lot of them. And if the Singer story breaks, they're fucked. Especially because of his fondness for the "he may look like a kid, but he's legal" argument.

The widely acclaimed Call Me by Your Name dares romanticize a youth-to-adult sexual relationship. It’s dressed-up as both nostalgia — set in 1983 — and Continental sophistication: Seventeen-year-old Elio (Timothée Chalamet) becomes obsessed with Oliver (Armie Hammer), his father’s 24-year-old research assistant who has joined the family’s summer retreat in Italy. But the dreamy, erotic story (languorous, sun-bright idylls, visual fetishes such as overripe fruit and wet swim trunks) has been queered by the film’s belated release, which, after its premiere last winter at the Sundance Festival, is strikingly mistimed ...

R87 Says someone who lives in an echo chamber.

Everyone likes to have this image of Hollywood being super liberal, but a lot of the executives - and notably Academy voters - aren't. This controversy stands a chance of hurting Timothee's Oscar chances. Sure, it's nice to think we live in a world of idealism where the only thing that matters is talent. We don't. And if something does happen with Singer or someone like him, or if enough people think giving CMBYN an Oscar win will give them bad stories the next day on Fox News, it could change votes.

This is about the Emmys, but you should read it to get an idea of how people *actually* vote for awards like these.

Elio is well above the age of consent to have relations with an adult person but he's underage in that he's still under the care of his parents and his life is on the brink of adulthood for most intents and purposes. That's why he's a teenager in the novel, that's why he's a teenager in the film-- he doesn't think he's being taken seriously at times because he's at that awkward child-to-adult stage. You may argue that it's not so terribly vital for the character to be under 18, despite this being very helpful in a coming-of-age story, but it's not like you can seriously insist that it's arbitrary and pointless to keep him being 17 in the movie.

Do tell me what I've said that is over-the-top or melodramatic. I've said I find some of the images somewhat uncomfortable because Timothee does look questionably young in some, especially compared with how old Armie looks (which you've agreed with). And I've expressed concern that this could harm Timothee's and the film's chances with Academy voters. I suggested the rightwing reaction could've been predicted and avoided by one little change. So, what exactly there is so over-the-top?

As for this being a thread for LA Film Critics awards - well that wasn't exactly necessary was it? It could've quite easily gone in the general CMBYN thread, but some fool decided they needed to create a new thread, so it feels fitting to shit on their thread by diverting it this way.

Their age of consent is 14. Before they started fucking with the food supply, puberty was ages 13-16 for most people.

Now that CMBYN has won several top critic awards and been nominated for 8 Critics Choice Awards (including 3 acting nods) and gaining steam as we speak, expect a lot of bad-mouthing about it and its actors. Oscar season and all that.

R125 a poster on one of the previous CMBYN threads stated that he had known Stuhlbarg once upon a time and was apparently insufferable, believing himself to be better than the average person. Now, don't shoot the messenger. Just reporting that there is at least one person who bad-mouthed him.

When you consider what a backwards and reactionary people they are, it bothers me to see everything they do put on a pedestal.

And consider how they are under the thumb of an anti-gay death cult that allied with Hitler and is still trying to marginalize us any way they can.

I'm tired of seeing the art and culture of non-Jewish white people put on a pedestal, and I'm tired of gentiles getting all the press in gay culture.

complete bullshit (r131) Italy is not under the thumb on any religion

"Roman Catholics and other Christians make up 80 percent of the population, though only one-third of those are practicing Catholics. The country also has a growing Muslim immigrant community, according to the University of Michigan. Muslim, agnostic and atheist make up the other 20 percent of the population"

So only 26% of Italians (80%x33%) are practicing catholics, ergo 74% of italians are non practicing catholic, other religions or agnostic/atheist, and is probably much higher among the younger generations.

meanwhile in "freedom of church and state"USA the republican party controls all three branches of government and endlessly caters to religious christian fanatics and hypocrites.

Spain's demographic makeup is really similar to that of Italy regarding catholicism and the influence of the Church, yet gay marriage and adoption were approved many years ago. Mediterranean culture, although full of contradictions, is far more open-minded and relaxed that most people give it credit for.
