Call me by your name, a film review
Spoiler-free, of course.
top 5 scenes I absolutely loved:#1 the war memorial scene
simply can’t get over how well-directed and gorgeous this scene is. Literally perfect.
#2 the first kiss
Monet’s berm. Both Armie & Timothée are AT THE TOP of their acting game in this scene.
Also, the way it’s shot.
Also, the way it’s written / adapted from the book.
#3 goodbye scene
Oscar-nominated Timothée Chalamet, there is just no need to say more.
#4 Elio’s dad monologue, aka Michael Stuhlbarg breaks everyone’s heart
GOD I JUST CANNOT GET OVER THIS SCENE. My heart broke into pieces right there and then.
#5 end credits
My heart broke into even smaller pieces, if that’s even possible.
Bonus thing I really loved
Sufjan Stevens’ songs are gorgeous and incredibly well-timed in the film.
top 5 scenes I didn’t love:
literally none because this film is PERFECT.
