  • A modern-day Visconti, Italian director Luca Guadagnino (I Am Love) grants us entry into a world not only of wealth but of culture, which can be just as liberating.

  • This coming-of-age love story is all texture, tone and nuance...Luca Guadagnino has made a lovely cinematic feather. And it floats down beautifully, riding a soft breeze of melancholy and grace.

  • It's a story less about the characters involved than it is about the dynamics between them, a late addition to the Symposium's accounts of the great god Love.

    I found myself awestruck by the beauty of this film, the locations and cinematography was nothing short of amazing. Timothy Celaman let's his presence be known with this roll, I appreciate every moment he was on screen, just memorizing. The writing and direction was also fantastic, story was a little choppy but no problem with me.

    Beautiful scenery but about thirty minutes too long. Hammer and Chalamet are good but it is Stuhlbarg who really shines...his father-son chat at the end of film is quite moving and emotional. Nice to see people on screen reading for enjoyment. (2-17-18)

    I am not sure why I enjoyed this film as much as I did. It doesn't communicate primarily through dialogue, the story is choppy, its heavy with the metaphors, and there are many scenes that seem to serve little to no purpose. However, the way the characters convey emotions and communicate without saying a word is amazing, the aura of escapism is wonderfully portrayed by using beautiful shots and the soothing sounds of Sufjan Stevens, yet not overdone like some fairytale. If this story were put in a vacuum it wouldn't interest me, but it makes you feel a certain way and takes you to a place that is pretty enjoyable.

    Sun drenched and hazy like a dream to pass along the summertime, Call Me By Your Name is a quietly romantic and gorgeous film, full of aching melancholy and subtle storytelling. It is a quiet and slow paced film, sometimes emotionally distancing, but entrancing and by film's end, wholly enrapturing. Armie Hammer and Timothee Chalamet give incredible performances, so natural and casual, as to appear completely authentic. Michael Stuhlbarg gives another fantastic supporting performance and his late film monologue is stirring. Call Me By Your Name is not a big film in any sense. It is a small, intimate little sliver of budding sexuality and summertime nostalgia and is unsentimental and non-judgmental in every way. Rating: 89
