Call Me by Your Name

Call Me by Your Name ★★★★½

Armie Hammer and Timothée Chalamet are just tremendous in this. They both give a profoundly touching performance and their chemistry is wonderful. It's also worth nothing the great supporting performance from Michael Stuhlbarg. Luca Guadagnino's direction is fantastic. Some takes are actually pretty long and really well done. Guadagnino seems to know exactly where he's going with his movie and it shows. Sufjan Stevens' Mystery of Love fits the movie perfectly and is such a lovely song. The rest of the soundtrack is also pretty good. The Italian landscape is shown beautifully and ever image looks great. Yet, even though this movie is a technical marvel, it's Elio and Oliver's story that shines the most. A story of friendship, love and heartbreak, Call Me by Your Name is a movie that takes its time, but eventually hits really hard.
