Call Me by Your Name

Call Me by Your Name ★★★★

I haven’t seen this film in over a year, and I knew the next time I watched it I would be very emotional— I was right. 

But today, something was totally different. Maybe it’s because I’ve gained perspective since the last viewing of the film. Or maybe it’s because I’ve been in Italy the last month with thirty people I’ve never met before. Or maybe it’s because I’ve just grown up. Maybe it’s a combination of all of these random thoughts. 

Today in class in Tuscany, a fresco on the ceiling, the old wooden windows rattling with every breeze, I fell in love with this film all over again and for entirely different reasons than when I first saw it. 

It’s amazing how you can grow and rewatch a film, and feel totally different. 

I can’t remember the last time I had such a visceral viewing expierence.
