Consensus: Call Me by Your Name offers a melancholy, powerfully affecting portrait of first love, empathetically acted by Timothée Chalamet and Armie Hammer.

Richard Roeper

Call Me by Your Name is a perfect, lazy, worry-free day, practically devoid of any real-world concerns and absolutely dripping with intellectual and artistic stimulation, and all manner of sexual enticement.

A spellbinding, almost ecstatically beautiful movie that gains even more heft and meaning in its final transcendent moments.

It is incredibly pleasant to spend a couple of hours with characters as unashamedly smart as this. It is rare these days to find English-speaking characters who revel in the pleasures of intellectual discussion, who celebrate each other's braininess.

A complicated movie, erotic yet never graphic, heartfelt yet highly stylized. Chalamet delivers one of the year's best performances.

"Call Me by Your Name" is enough to make you move to the town of Crema, even if your rational self realizes the director Luca Guadagnino trades in a heightened, miragelike state of mythic yearning.

By the end of this 132-minute journey, I had grown somewhat weary of the tug of war between the two leads, despite disarming efforts from Hammer and Chalamet.

One of the year's most romantic movies, and also one of the best.

"Call Me By Your Name" is transcendent in its first hour, communicating much through the camera's evocation of nature and the screenplay's clear yet subtle dialogue.

There's a lot of the unspoken in Call Me by Your Name, a perceptive film about lust, jealousy, uncertainty, repression, and, maybe, love.

Not to single out this particular premise, but films revolving around gay couples have been terrific over the last decade or so. There was a spark when… More

I didn't anticipate how deeply moving this film was going to be. Each moment feels earned and the performances are remarkable.

Although it is not always subtle and can be a bit repetitious sometimes, this is a touching coming-of-age drama that benefits from an excellent performance by… More
