Call Me by Your Name

Call Me by Your Name ★★★★★

The only other romance that I can think of that truly blurs the meta line without ever having to acknowledge it is Before Sunrise (and that’s of this magnitude of quality). This truly is lightning in a bottle, and it just might be perfect. Everyone is incredible in this (a feeling I never felt on any prior watch), and that had to make the crew just feel alive/on fire every day, which is matched in their superb looseness in capturing the magic.

Sincere. Complicated. Fragile. Tangible. Ultimately, real. Or, better yet, more real than real; which is the best the movies can usually offer us.

Ok, but. Chalamet is an actual revelation here. Once in a generation performance. It's unreal to witness in the moment; undeniable.
