Call Me by Your Name ★★★★½

TIFF 2017: Film #2

Cinematic experiences don't really get as pure as this. Call Me By Your Name is one of the most honest, fully realized, and emotional films I've seem tackle what it means to go through a sexual awakening. Aesthetically, the film is a wonderland. So many lush shots of beautiful Northern Italian landscapes. Armie Hammer is at peak form, Timothee Chalamet is a revelation, and Michael Stuhlbarg gives one of the absolute finest monologues in cinematic history. One of the best directed films that I've come across this year. There isn't much more that I can say that people haven't already said. Believe the hype. This film is a marvel.
