Call Me by Your Name

Call Me by Your Name ★★★★★

holy crap usually re-watches dull visceral emotions for me into a kind of bearable fondness but something about this movie just never fails to make my heart physically ache. the thesis of the movie is summed up in the wonderful michael stuhlbarg scene (nurse all your feelings, even your sorrow! feel!) and it holds really true and becomes more rewarding the more you watch. this film makes you want to do everything, feel everything with your body - pedal a bike, dance, cry, fall in love, scribble furiously in a journal, spring into a room, sing drunkenly - and it makes you hang onto every tiny interaction, subtle micro-expression & quiet, vulnerable admission of feelings. i love romance!
