Call Me by Your Name

Call Me by Your Name ★★★

Don't really have anything constructive to say about this as a piece of queer cinema. As a romantic drama I found it sort of inert, lots of very pretty privileged people dancing around each other in sunny Italy shot like a perfume commercial. To that end it irritated me in precisely the same way that some of Ivory's later films, like LE DIVORCE, do, and it definitely bugged me that the women are mostly nonentities. Armie Hammer is indeed hot.
