Call Me By Your Name has reached peak Call Me By Your Name-ness (Part 14)

Call Me By Your Name has won a major critics association's Best Picture Award, but that has led people to question whether it is really a queer masterpiece or simply a retread of something Lasse Hallstrom would have made at Miramax in 2003. Meanwhile, its stars turn to new projects (below) and people are questioning the apparatus by which straight actors are repeatedly cast and praised for acting in gay "prestige" projects.

Here is the direct link to the aciman interview, rather than just that excerpt.

But I never read the ending of the book as so open-ended, so I did find it interesting that was his intent.

Also I love he is perplexed by the fangurl culture.

Why do you think young women connect with it? How could I know?
I don’t know. All humans connect with it, really. But the people that I see on Twitter all the time, all girls.

Yes, it's quite ambiguous, and there's room for all sorts of scenarios - I've never understood the readers who claim that it's so definitively closed. There seems to be an idea that the possibility of an ultimate happier ending for the two is somehow a betrayal of what came before. I don't know, but the openness of the ending always seemed obvious to me. It ends on the note of Elio hoping that once again, Oliver will call him by his name. And since we don't know if Oliver does or not, there's hope that he might.

Well of course. I would this goes without saying for a sequel.

I sort of get why Luca made a point of saying that they'd have sex again, though - between him leaking some of his plans for the sequel, which seem very hetero, and the fact that in the novel they don't have sex in the ensuing 20 years, he probably just wanted to throw some raw meat to the base, so to speak.

Somebody needs to give Dr. Aciman a primer on slashy fangurl culture - love them or hate them, they're a part of pretty much every m/m-themed pop culture phenomenon, whether it's Queer as Folk, Brokeback Mountain, etc. They have gone into a frenzy over this one, and you can't buy that kind of promotion/PR.

R53 correct. Movie making is a business. At the end of the day someone invests money into the product, and they want to see a return on their investment that yields profit. Just like any other business, it is about returning a profit.

This is a low budget movie because they are realistic about its box office potential, it doesn't need to be a blockbuster, but they are definitely counting on making money off of it.

Armie Hammer looks like no 24 year old I know. So it exaggerates the age difference to make it look more extreme than the 7 years it is supposed to be.

R118 actually, by all accounts, Chalamet is known to be intelligent and mature for his age, so it appears that he is at Hammer's mental age, not the other way around. Hammer is not some dumb blond himbo, either. He sounds like he has a head on his shoulders and worries about the state of the world. He just needs to work on that filter.

R142 you sound cynical.

Awards season can be intoxicating to an actor. You are getting so much attention, praise, constant events to go to.

But all of that ends, and the world moves on. Enjoy the limelight for now, but recognize this is not real life, it will end.

There's a big difference between loving and being in love. All these guys have said is that they love each other, which we can almost guarantee is true considering how they all talk about each other and willingly spend time together. I guess we'll see if they're still such good friends in a years time or something.

I agree, but Armie has actually said he fell in love with Timothee. Repeatedly. The last time I remember him mentioning that was during an interview where he said he falls more in love with Timmy every time he sees him, which was completely gratuitous. Just saying he loves him would have been enough. Then again that's Armie Hammer, king of saying stuff that's not really that necessary.

CMBYN got nods for Picture, Actor, and Supporting Actor (Hammer & Stuhlbarg) from the Boston Online Film Critics Association and the San Francisco Film Critics. Circle. I know they're meaningless in the large scheme of things, but they do often point to a trend. Both Hammer and Stuhlbarg seem to be getting in the critics awards, so they could both get nods. If so, it would be the first time since 1991. However, Luca seems to be missing out.
