Scraps: “Call Me by Your Name”

Director: Luca Guadagnino
Cinematographer: Sayombhu Mukdeeprom
Writers: James Ivory (screenplay by), André Aciman (based on the novel by)

  • Surprised that this movie somehow is still echoing at the back of my mind long after I’ve seen it.
  • The music in the film definitely helps engrain it into my head further. Sufjan Stevens did a wonderful job.
  • Timothée Chalamet is very alluring and charismatic. Definitely stole the show, despite all the “buzz” over Arnie Hammer.
  • For the first time in a while, noticed the blocking in a film. Guadagnino and Mukdeeprom created a very hypnotic dance between the actors and the camera that helped create a sense of dizzying romanticism and tension.
  • Walked in with heavy skepticism and very low expectations but definitely seduced by the end of the film. Appreciated how internal the film felt, despite it being set against a setting that I am lately very cautious/ apprehensive of.
