 Call Me By Your Name knocked me the fuck out, out of nowhere.


wanted to feel this, yet ended up more like this:

didnt love this but expectations were fairly high.  still, id like to think i can meet a film on its terms and i felt this was a chore to sit through for most of its running time.  the last twenty minutes or so is pretty lovely but in a way that wasnt necessarily earned by what preceded it.

pretty overrated.

but oddly still kinda feel this:



I can't wait to watch it again. Failing to grasp it totally again.

I think the problem for me is that the film has a lot of lulls in the middle, these begin shortly after Elio and Oliver first fool around by the lake - it feels like a long time until their next interaction with Oliver ignoring him and Elio losing his virginity to Marizia, then the guys schedule a midnight rendezvous with Elio slowly counting down the hours and all that stuff was pretty boring.

Upon further contemplation, I did like most of the movie. It felt different from the same ole Hollywood romances, but the pacing had me spacing out after being so jazzed about the first hour. The whole lead up to the guys' first physical encounter was great, after that only intermittently so. Still, those performances, the setting, the music, all fantastic (Luca, too). Overall I'd say 3-Stars.

That pacing is one of the reasons why I love the movie. To me, like I tried to say previously, I don't really care about the plot of this movie since everything is pretty clear since the beginning. All the spaces between/during/after the events are what gave it a lot of life for meand when you have those performances, too...

All the scenes with the watch: I find them pretty spectacular. Waiting is such an important part of infatuation.
I'm so many people.

what happened between me and Luca Guadagnino in Call Me by Your Name is what i was open to let happen between me and Denis Villeneuve in Blade Runner 2049. but even when you're open there's still the chemical reaction, and i didn't chemically react to BR2049 but i did to Call Me by Your Name. so i should go back and rewatch I Am Love while i'm at it.

um rich people and culture is this thing for me that i'm working on overcoming. because if you let it happen, the guiding principle isn't money but art. that can happen--in Europe more often (rumor). the narrative here is thin and the movie is pure sensuality, revolving around the concept of art aesthetics which are even mentioned in a literary sense. it's about meaning more than aesthetics while being aesthetic, it's about what aesthetics can mean.

it's pure emotion and pete didn't spoil about the ending. the ending overall closes a predictable narrative. again, it's about more than the narrative. it's about how the narrative feels. and the certain principle i have to apply toward liking this movie affects me as a person from a richer and more vulnerable principle than that which i applied to mother! and BR2049.

therefore by verifiable principle this has to be one of my favorite movies of the year or else, what i'm saying is, if i didn't say it's one of my favorite movies of the year i'd be lying to myself.
