Good Morning, Call Me By Your Name Day

.
There are maybe a dozen shots I could list off the top of my head in Call Me By Your Name that I could call (thank you Charlie Kaufman) a synecdoche of it - meaning shots that in miniature represent the whole shebang. I already did it with one on Twitter a couple of weeks ago right here. And this shot of Timothée would be another, and maybe the funniest of the bunch - a young man lounging around nothing to do but to fiddle with his newfound manhood... here represented by the hair under his arm, but just a second later represented by... 

... well, you know. YOU KNOW WHAT THINGS. (And yes Timothée and I do in fact have the same allergy, thanks for asking.) Anyway I can't really make the joke that "Every day is Call Me By Your Name Day here on the blog!" anymore because the posting has totally calmed down a lot about the movie, but seeing as how the movie is finally in wide release across the States as of today i figured I should maybe call today Call Me By Your Name Day. So happy Call Me By Your Name Day!

Yes indeed I saw the film a thirteenth time last night, and I think I will have a couple new-ish things to say about it this afternoon if I can get around to it, so stay tuned. Although if you're smart you're already at your local cinema watching the first showing of the movie, and you're planning on sitting through every screening all day, because that's what I wish I was doing. But anyway stay tuned for that, and more probably, or whatever, we'll see.

I'm going to pull an Elio and say that my opinion doesn't matter, but you didn't oversell this film. It's special. You've done such an amazing job of trying to encapsulate it, but experiencing it defies words. But it deserves all the eloquent poetry of which is not in my vernacular that you have used. Sublime.
