Alongside Weekend and Moonlight, Call Me By Your Name is the greatest queer film I have seen in the past ten years. It's a gorgeous, quiet masterwork - Luca Guadagnino has given us something truly special here. I'll cherish this one for a long, long time as it's extremely human and very personal. The fact that the legendary James Ivory wrote the screenplay for this shoots this over the top and slam dunks it into the cinematic stratosphere. Truly stunning work that deserves to be remembered, preserved, and celebrated for decades to come.
Until the last 25 minutes, this is a near-perfect movie. Unfortunately, it ends not in a climax but a dissipation, lacking the necessary precision to make its desired impact in the last minutes. Despite a last-minute fumble, there's so much else that's so good and so effective that you can't help but be invested in the relationship between the leads. Call Me By Your Name is an achingly gorgeous, beautiful, intense portrayal of small-town life and first-time love. 👌
