Call Me by Your Name

Call Me by Your Name ★★★★★

Call Me By Your Name very much feels like a poem or a beautifully done painting. A film so filled with emotion and artistry that is complimented by it’s visuals, music and magnificent cast. Timothee Chalamet and Armie Hammer are incredible together. Michael Stuhlbarg delivers one of the most poignant and touching speeches I have ever heard in a film. I could write a thousand words on how much this film touched me , how important it felt, and the emotional experience I had watching it. I was left speechless at the credit scene. I think Call Me By Your Name will be remembered as one of the most incredible films ever.

Also I love the subtlety of the movie. Elio never actually says “I’m in love with you.” to Oliver, he just hints at it. And Elio never actually says says “I’m gay” or “I’m bisexual” to his parents, it’s just hinted at and they eventually figure the clues out. Normalizing the idea that being gay is natural and coming out should be nonchalant? I love it.
