Call Me By Your Name (2016)
Mr. Perlman: How you live your life is your business, just remember, our hearts and our bodies are given to us only once. And before you know it, your heart is worn out, and, as for your body, there comes a point when no one looks at it, much less wants to come near it. Right now, there's sorrow, pain. Don't kill it and with it the joy you've felt.
Without even doing a search I know that I have obviously posted this speech before in the course of the past six years of CMBYN being in my life (should I cross out the word "in" and just say "being my life" there?). But I'll post it again today in honor of it being the great Michael Stuhlbarg's 54th birthday and also in honor of me just feeling like thinking about this now-legendary speech too, dammit. You're not gonna stop me! Has anybody watched CMBYN lately? It's been several months for me, I gotta get back on it. In it. It is admittedly more... complicated... since all the Armie stuff dropped. But I manage. Thank goodness the homophobic world forced me to nurture my ability to compartmentalize since childhood! I'm real good at pretending, y'all.
