    ★★★★½

    Absolutely elated that this was actually a cannibal love story, and not just a love story with cannibalism. Every single scene is saturated in an unsure sense of trepidation. Every kiss, ever character interaction in general, dripping with hazardous hunger. Guadagnino balances the moods and character dynamics in a way that never lets the viewer get comfortable; that always keeps us expecting the worst. The cast is magnificent all-around. From Taylor Russell and Timothée Chalamet, whose performances are completely different…

    Michael Fassbender should get a nomination for this. He won't, but he should. He's so fucking good.

    Outside a handful of problems (mostly some minor pacing issues in the second act, but also some minor horror movie clichés here or there), I loved every second of this film. Fassbender's just a wicked delight, the production design is amazing, and Ridley Scott manages to build up a great deal of tension and dread throughout the film's fairly basic, familiar story arc.
