    Timothée Chalamet
    Bria Vinaite
    Jake Gyllenhaal
    Michelle Williams
    Joseph Gordon-Levitt
    Jason Mitchell

    Your choice of director and principal cast for a 1950s Hollywood version of Call Me by Your Name (pretending homosexuality wasn’t taboo back then)?

    Call Me by Your Name 1950s directed by Elia Kazan (only director that really willingly dived into intimate adaptations of literary work, so Aciman’s novel would be in good hands):

    Slio Perlman: James Dean
    Oliver: Montgomery Clift
    Mr. Perlman: Karl Malden
    Ms. Perlman: Grace Kelly
    Marzia: Audrey Hepburn

    So my takeaway from this is you are a fucking faggot assed loser who has shit taste in performances, as evidenced by your dislike of actually great performances? You also can’t spell names properly because fuck it right? Fucking idiotic.

    New question: what are your thoughts and eating out of five for Mark Ruffalo in Spotlight?

    Ruffalo – 1/5 (Spotlight as a film takes a specifically rather unassuming approach, guided by a steady directorial hand of the material, just imagine if say Danny Boyle helmed the film instead. Although there’s a definite emotional aspect to the whole ordeal, the performances are often very subtle. Each performer generally has to internalize what they’re doing, through pitch perfect reactive work that are mostly self-contained (without unnecessary manner)…well except for Ruffalo.

    From the outset, everyone’s just doing the work right? Just trying to get by. But with Ruffalo, there’s something amiss with him. He’s doing work too for sure, but what’s with the strange, monotonous cadence he uses? What is with the desk leaning? Is Mike Rezendes preparing for Hunchback of Notre Dame?

    And that’s not a minor blip as well. In every scene, Ruffalo is just trying to do something atypical. He makes off putting gazes, he has a James Dean nickle in his pocket which he’s trying to reach at. He’s hunched over like a fucking idiot. Okay, what I’m trying to say is Mark Ruffslo is overly mannered. As mannered as you can get. He sticks out when in a cast like this, you’re supposed to blend in. His mannerisms just stem from nowhere, as if he’s trying to add something to what is supposed to be a subtle, naturalistic performance. Schreiber gives a, technically speaking, mannered performance, but what he does is a lot more unassuming and naturalistic with the physical manner he chooses. No question then, he should have been nominated for the Oscar, not Ruffalo.

    My favorite performance of Ruffalo is Foxcatcher. In that, he’s mannered as fuck as well, but those mannerisms were carefully accentuated into his work through his naturalism. But here, he just sticks out like a sore thumb. His performance shocks me, not only by the critical acclaim it got, but by how it came from a once Brando-esque natural actor in the 2000s. Mark Ruffalo simply fails here. He’s a nice guy, but he nearly toppled this film over with his self-centered performing. Ruffalo sticks out like a sore thumb with his excessively mannered turn that seems off for a film going for a strict and intimate realism.

    Oh thank you so much for your insight .. thank god you have a miserable enough live to be able to criticize my choices .. I have a full right to like or dislike any film or perform ace I like, and I dont give you shit for liking boring , slowly paced and boring performances.. You have your shitty opinions and i am allowed mine.
