Daniel’s review published on Letterboxd:
There’s so much beauty in this world that it’s easy to miss, it’s easy to focus on the headlines that constantly perturb or distract us from what life’s really about. Some of us are forced to hide who we are, living in fear of the bigotry and hatred from those who surround us; when everyone really wants the same thing in life, happiness. It’s films like this encapsuled with endless bounds of goodness to remind us of how beautiful it all is, our bodies and our thoughts and our desires to be who we are and cherish it with those we love. The film of the year, of a lifetime, and simply one of the most affecting pieces of art created; a gift to all of the senses and to anyone with feeling. A film made with emotions, not formulas; a staggering achievement that reminds movie fans and filmmakers everywhere that cinema is the most powerful form of creation, and that it’s far from being dead when works like “Call Me By Your Name” can make me feel so alive.
