Call Me by Your Name (2017)

Written by Law on January 7, 2018

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. 👌
