    Where Eagles Dare

    ★★★★

    Rewatched this after having seen it at age 13 with my grandfather, then again in my late 20’s. There are some shenanigans in the last hour that strain credulity but you just don’t care. So much good time has been spent up til then building Burton and Eastwood as a team. And the patience with silent scenes of them just getting shit done is hypnotic.

    Call Me by Your Name

    ★★★½

    A really amazing cast. Great performances despite a shallow script. Gorgeous cinematography suffers from the diminishing returns of the script. Sense of the period and use of music are both terrific! Really really wanted to like it more.
