Call Me by Your Name

Call Me by Your Name

Not dropping a star rating because I watched this wine drunk & talked loudly over the film with the person I saw it with, but I can’t wait to see it again & anticipate its score being quite high for me. Spectacularly shot, beautifully scored, sensually edited with those dissolves I live for, & authentically acted. I was really impressed with Timmy & found his portrayal of first love, homosexual specifically, to be heartbreakingly accurate & relatable. Armie Hammer is the sex god god of all the sex, but he’s also a great actor, particularly in his love scenes with Beautiful Boi where his tenderness shines. Everyone has breathless chemistry with everyone, & I love the lack of agency/conflict/tension in the plot, allowing it to unfold naturally & smoothly tell this coming of age tale like a bedtime lullaby. That monologue Michael Stuhlbarg delivers at the end is an absolute showstopper & had me in tears. But obviously the best thing about this film was Judaism. Thank you Luca Guadagnino, woke king, for doing the absolute most for the culture.
