Call Me by Your Name

Call Me by Your Name

Ok, so I don't know what movie everyone else saw, but this was so laughably bad. The acting, horrific. The kid looked and sounded bored in every single scene. The writing, guys, you don't need to adapt every single line from the book, especially when your actors definitely cannot pull them off. Direction, boring as all hell. Super standard and bland. 

The two good things in this movie were Sufjan Stevens and the actors playing the parents. I'm a big fan of Sufjan and his songs here deserved a much, much better movie. The monologue from the dad at the end was also one of the few good points in the movie where I wasn't rolling my eyes. 

Overall though, just really bad (and somewhat unhappy queers ending, which is bleh and gross).
