    ★★★★½

    A perfectly made movie. Meryl Streep is a goddess.

    The way Spielberg frames her face so reminiscent of Dreyer's Joan of Arc.

    Yes the film is timely, and this added to how moved I was. But it's mostly the crisp, brisk direction and screenplay, along with Streep's greatness, that makes this thing so special.

    The female experience told in fragments. Quiet, beautiful, profound.

    Call Me by Your Name

    ★★★★½

    A beautiful, lush, erotic, devastating, magnificent film. So special, so well acted and directed.

    Timothée Chalamet is effortlessly compelling as the 17yo discovering his heart and his body. He is a revelation, delivering what will absolutely be one of the year's best performances.

    Michael Stuhlbarg's speech at the end is everything every gay boy has ever wanted his father to tell him.

    It's everything I've ever wanted to see in a gay romance on film. I could have lived inside of it forever.

    That last shot. That last shot.
