Jackson’s review published on Letterboxd:
If you know me, you know how important the words I am about to say are:
This is the best Timothee Chalamet movie, this is Timothee Chalamet's best performance, this is probably the most attractive he's been in a movie. (Though Taylor Russell still outsells him on all fronts)
I was so intrigued by this movie before seeing it, but was of two minds. The premise got me excited but Chalamet and also Guadagnino had me reserve myself. I am so happy to say that this is a genuinely great movie. I resonated with it and the themes so much, seeing myself in its queer allegory. The further along it went, the deeper in love I fell. Before the "August" scenes, I was so happy. I loved what I'd seen. But, I'd told the person I was watching it with that, I felt like it had to end a certain way, no way it could end any other, and sure enough, that ending came, and I was ruined.
I want to be people.
