Your Name. ★★★½

It has shades of Eternal Sunshine and occasionally hints at the magic contained in Kaufman's magnum opus, but it flounders in its ending, dragging beats out for too long. There were at least three time when the film should have just cut to black and rolled credits, but it carried on, softening the emotional punch every time. Still, the fusion of body swap and another sub-genre I won't name for fear of spoiling the film's greatest asset: surprise makes for a fresh coming of age tale; one of the better films I've seen this year.

I give Your Name a 3.5/5.
