Call Me by Your Name ★★★★★

NYFF55 FILM #5:

Upon a second viewing, I was even more impacted by Call Me By Your Name. The way Luca Guadagnino lets this beautiful romance unfold feels so organic and genuine. This is only elevated by the marvelous performances by Armie Hammer, turning in the best work of his career, and Timothée Chalamet, an instant star in the year's most emotionally powerful performance. Not a single moment feels out of place in this 130 minute triumph, culminating in one of the best endings I've ever seen in a movie.
