Call My Be Your Name wrecked me. By the end of the movie, I was a crying mess and I had to go with my friends to get a drink right afterwards. What an incredible movie! The direction, the production design, the camera work, the music, and the performances! Everything. The exclamation points are necessary. What a script!
I’ve always been uneven as a reviewer for film. I’m either highly critical or, if I loved the film, I’m just gushing and gushing. This film made me the latter. It’s so well done that I’m amazed at how affecting the movie was and I was in a cinema jam-packed with people from the LGBT community and the energy was palpable. It hit all the right notes. What a fantastic film.
