Its strength is that it really does seem like the character played by Timothée Chalamet made the film himself. Who else but an actual actor-director would end his film by staring tearfully into a fireplace in winter because he’s realized he will always be separate from other human beings, even though he spent last summer having sex in Lombardy with two kind and very attractive people (Armie Hammer and Esther Garrel)?

Guadagnino finally reels in his penchant for the immoderately sensational to arrive at the truly sensual.

He also charms everyone almost instantly–except for the awkward adolescent Elio, who at first views this swaggering interloper with a mingling of contempt and envy. What unfolds between them is, in Guadagnino’s hands, a kind of languorous hypnotism, a meeting of spiritual ardor and tender physicality.

    Call me By Your Name. By my name. By our name. Call me names. Any names. Just call me. Think of me. Let summer last our whole life. Let them abs remain unaltered as our minds read Greek poems or german translations of French novels. Let us dance till we fall. Fall till we're hold. Puke till we're rescued. Love till it hurts. Hurt till it scars. Live till it ends. It will, but we rode bikes, ate apricots&swam in love.

  • Daniel S.'s rating of the film Call Me by Your Name

    I don't understand those who reject here this film because, according to them, it idealizes reality. Stop me if you want but it seems to me that 90% of the annual cinema production idealizes reality and I don't see why a gay film shouldn't do that. Strongly recommended.

  • Roscoe's rating of the film Call Me by Your Name

    Snivelling little teen weepie fantasy for skittish straight people who want to pat themselves on the back for being A-OK With The Gays as long as they don't have to watch one of them get fucked up the ass and act like he likes it. For an actual depiction of a young man's recognition of his homosexuality, check out BEACH RATS, which actually has something to do with life on earth.

  • dionysus67's rating of the film Call Me by Your Name

    Quite an original narrative to gay romance aided by a naturalist aesthetic. This is transformed into an ontology of a normality, as spontaneous, as socially uncalibrated -over and above the family's and Oliver's academically liberal yet upper middle-class veneer- as unreflective as plantlike nature can be. This blossoming comes across with ingenuity with no risk of idealization of the ability to defy one's habitus.

  • saitosouta's rating of the film Call Me by Your Name

    Nu pentru mine, cu tristețe. Eu cred că nu există niciun moment decisiv în peisajele discursive ale dragoste. Cinematografie plină de lumina soarelui este frumoasă în aparență dar nu a adîncime. Poate zici "Acest e prima iubire" dar nu pot. Am plîns cînd a apărut "în memoria lui Bill Paxton," totuși. // 哀しいが自分には合わなかった。とりとめない愛の風景には決定的な一瞬が存在しない。陽光豊かな撮影も表面的に美しいだけで深みはない。あなたはこれを初恋と言うかもしれないが私にはそう言えない。"ビル・パクストンの思い出に"には泣いたが。

  • Skinnedteen's rating of the film Call Me by Your Name

    Guadagnino captures the masterful illusion of Elio and Oliver's desire for each other. Who wouldn't fall in love with Chalamet and Hammer's alluring presence and chemistry in front of the camera? The prolonged shots are like memories that you don't want to end. You're seduced by the colours of summer on the gorgeous architectures of Italy while Sufjan Stevens strums his banjo whispering your feelings to your ears.

  • Matthew Martens's rating of the film Call Me by Your Name

    4.3. Half a star deducted due to being repeatedly kicked off sugar mountain by the gratuitous, dubious grace of Sufjan Stevens' voice (sorry!), and another .2 due to my slight (and shameful) shame at being so ravished by all this overripe, achingly perishable beauty, which constantly threatens to become merely pretty--but never (rarely?) does. "Do you know how happy I am that we slept together?" Total disarmament.

  • Huey McEvoy's rating of the film Call Me by Your Name

    There is literally nothing wrong with this film. It's faultless. Being 17 and in love hurts like hot bees, no matter how much fucking gorgeous Italian countryside you have to hide in. Hammer and Stuhlbarg are perfect, but Chalamet gives what is easily the best performance I've seen all year.
