    Call Me by Your Name


    Flying to Melbourne to see this at MIFF on my birthday was the best idea I’ve had at least all year. What better gift could I give myself than the sight of Armie Hammer in billowy shirts and short shorts, cycling around the Italian countryside? Except, perhaps, Armie Hammer dancing to Psychedelic Furs – I never knew that was something I needed to see, but, oh, how I needed to!

    In all seriousness (well, I am serious about Armie in…

    It is achingly beautiful (visually & otherwise); exquisitely shot (on 16mm) it is…

    Honestly one of the most relatable depictions of mental illness I've seen in a movie. There's so much in here that really expresses how I experience depression and anxiety.

    The sense of detachment, then those bursts where you just don't want to, can't, be alone. (When she goes to that diner with her neighbour). How you are followed by fear (here taking the form of the undead man). Those periods where you feel you're not part of the world and/or…
