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

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.
[quote]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.

R97 Interesting that you mention he's 5'9'. I have this really dumb theory that Armie's height was one of the reasons he got the role. Timmy is 6'1'.

But why are you so angry about this r148? What the hell difference does this make in the scheme of the world??? Oh my god actors might be exaggerating things, ALERT THE NEWS MEDIA

R138, sta-tis-tics...sta-tis-tics......LOL. Love it.

They're so sweet together. I totally buy this friendship. Can we talk about how Armie went to Timmy's little shared apartment though!
|by Anonymous||reply 152||Last Friday at 1:37 PM|
This was one of the times he went. He captioned it 'a New Yorker in his environment'. You can tell it's Timmy's old building because his old roommate posted a photo of the same corridor.

R150 Tactic of selling movies in this fashion is ok for movies like The Twilight. It pisses me off in general least of all a good movie such as CMBYN. I don't blame the actors it's the PR machinery at work here. Luca's narrative of being in love with his actors and them being in love with each other is cheap.

Give it a rest R154. They like each other.

R154 what are you, prejudiced or something?

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.

" They like each other" Now that I can see. You're finally getting it!

Troye Sivan is reading CMBYN. I don't think it will ever happen but I'd like him to meet fellow twink Tim O'Tay.

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.

I find Luca very creepy his eyes are creepy. He made a good movie but the man is thirsty & creepy as hell.

It's just his Italianness. He's intense, that all. I know, an Anglo will never be able to get it

Not surprisingly, the North Texas Film Critics Association snubbed CMBYN in every available category, which contains 10 nominees each.

R166 'I'm not a member of the North Texas Film Critics Association, but I know several: CALL ME BY YOUR NAME was neither screened for nor sent to its members, along with a few other SPC titles. It was *not* a case of intentional shutout. attn @NextBestPicture and others (@reelchaselee)'

Why won't the members say something then?
|by Anonymous||reply 168||Yesterday at 6:50 AM|
R168 Has anyone asked them? I don't know. I do know someone from Dallas who said the same thing: screeners haven't been sent and there was one invitation-only press screening where 5 people turned up. SPC have never been great at getting screeners to the more regional places.

Lead all nominees with eight nominations at the Chicago Film Critics Association.

I just posted this in Timmy's thread but it was a CMBYN win too, so why not post it twice. Celebrate that Lil Timmy Tim is killing the award game this season!

You don't have to keep it to yourself, but multiple crosspostings bore us and make us hate you. Post something once. Who wants to read something twice?

I don't know. I tend to re-read books from time to time. Is that too weird?

I was talking about posting the same post in different threads, R175. Not books.

No, we don't.
I stay away from the Timothee threads because while I have nothing at all against him, he's not the focus of my interest in this film and there's only so much Tumblrina I can take. I stick with the main CMBYN thread and the Armie thread. I'm not bothered by someone posting info about an award win here - but yeah, cross-posting between the associated threads will probably wear out whatever goodwill there is toward you pretty fast.
|by Anonymous||reply 179||16 hours ago|
R179 so you are okay with the Frauen harping on whether Mrs Hammer should say she is pregnant now or in the 2nd trimestre or whatever, which is basically what goes down in Armie's threads. It's pathetic
