    In Between Gays – Film Review: Summer Of 85 ★★★★ Prolific French filmmaker, François Ozon, has made a career out of finding dark crevices in the most unexpected of places. Here, with Summer Of 85, he tweaks this New Wave era gay romance just enough to upend our expectations. In pure Talented Mr. Ripley meets Call Me By Your Name meets Luca fashion, Ozon spins what could have been that sun-dappled, seaside summer that changed everything into a love that perhaps never was, zeroing in instead on a young man's obsession for something unobtainable. Beautifully shot and acted, Ozon takes the story to more provocative places than you'd initially expect while still maintaining the boppy fizz of a great Cure song. Despite the mish mash of tones, the film has a pulse all of its own. It'll make you swoon, pull the rug out from under you, and then make you wonder how he managed to quietly get a little twisted.
