    Voting begins on the 20th. Timothee is doing Kimmel on the 22nd. That’s campaigning.

    I just want everyone to actually see Timothee’s performance before they vote.

    I was thinking someone more along the lines of Alden Ehrenreich, Taron Egerton, Xavier Dolan, or Harris Dickinson

    I really liked the film and thought Chalamet was incredible but there is just something so wooden about Hammer as an actor. I haven’t seen him be really good in any film, although he was decent in The Social Network. His performance certainly didn’t ruin what was a great film though.

    Maybe Zach Efron

    He’s a lot shorter than Chalamet. There’s no way that someone under 6’1 would make Oliver work. Height matters.

    Hammer’s performance was borderline cringey in CMBYN, but at least he looked the part.

    Amazing Armie made Timothee look so short. Armie is such a big guy 🙂 I think Armie did a great job and was actually the perfect guy to play Oliver. I was just thinking about the possibility of another actor making the relationship more acceptable to our conservative money spending friends who HW seems to cater to so much. In reality I loved the movie so much I wouldn’t change anything.

    For some reason I can see Robert Pattison or Dave Franco pulling off a mid twenties look and a possible Oliver. Even Armie’s size and height were over whelming for Timothee. Maybe Zach Efron  Saying that I thought Armie and Timothee we’re awesome.

    Omg. I just looked it up and Dave Franco is a year older than Armie Hammer. Mind entirely blown. HOW. I was thinking someone more along the lines of Alden Ehrenreich, Taron Egerton, Xavier Dolan, or Harris Dickinson for the Oliver role, but none of them would’ve been available at the time of filming anyways. Timothee and Armie have great chemistry together, at any rate. Doesn’t change how big and old Armie looks on screen, though. Lol

    I don’t think any of those actors would have worked. Chamalet has a very specific energy that one needs to work around if what I have seen from both Lady Bird and Call Me By Your Name suggests. I think Hammer played it right all things considered. The character of Oliver is one that is remote and narratively inaccessible – you don’t know what he is thinking or how he is feeling. You only know of him through subtle clues and inferences because the entire narrative is from Elio’s perspective. I think he did well with what he was given.

    Agreed. There are all of two scenes in the entire movie where we are not seeing Oliver through Elio’s POV- the scene with the father reviewing slides, and the brief moment in Bergamo the morning he leaves. That’s it, and are the only real clues we get to his interior life outside of his interactions with Elio. It’s a difficult role that could easily be overplayed or underplayed.

    First post in a while (and I’m predominately a TV poster) but I need to say that I need Amira Casar as a family member. Seriously loved her underappreciated performance (maybe even more than Stuhlbarg’s until the monologue).

    On the soundtrack, I actually like (like being an understatement) Futile Devices more than the two original Sufjan Stevens tracks- needless to say all of them are deeply affecting. All of the music is perfectly curated and should be acknowledged by an award somehow (could say this for many films ineligible for Score on any given year).

    Reading through the thread everything else has already been said, but despite loving the film I don’t really mind it not winning anything next Sunday (it helps that imo Three Billboards is also very deserving). It’s just a great, low-key piece of cinema and doesn’t need anything to validate it.

    Call Me by Your Name was the last film I saw before the Oscars and it turned out to be my favorite film of the year. To me, it is a complete masterpiece. It immediately transformed me into the Italian summertime – I practically felt the heat. It was so refreshing to see a gay movie with nobody dying, suffering from terminal illness, being beaten, etc. Loved it. Can’t stop thinking about the film to this day, which happens extremely rarely to me.

    The acting was superb across the board.

    I am surprised that so many people here think Armie Hammer looked too mature for portraying a 24 years old student. To me, he did not look much different from his The Social Network’s day when he actually was 24. Anyway, he gave a beautifully nuanced and very generous performance and I cannot imagine anyone else in the role. Also, he is clearly supporting despite getting top-billing and should have gotten an Oscar nomination for it.

    The parents were wonderful as well, I liked Amira Casar as much as Michael Stuhlbarg, who also should have gotten an Oscar nod for it.

    Now the wonder that Timothée Chalamet’s Elio. Hands down the best performance of the year. I hope he will have a bright future ahead of him.

    Shame it underperformed at the BO even compared to other LGBTQ films, because it certainly deserved to be seen by a larger audience.

    Beyond happy that the legendary James Ivory has finally gotten his due. Nevertheless, In terms of Oscar love, it certainly deserved more than it got.

    Luca Guadagnino should have made it over Christopher Nolan and I fail to see what was so special about Darkest Hour cinematography when you have films like this and Phantom Thread in consideration. It rained for almost every day of filming, but you would never guess it due to Sayombhu Mukdeeprom’s masterful work.

    Can’t wait to find out more about the sequel.

    10 /10
