Your Favorite Song Today
« on: December 21, 2017, 01:59:23 PM »
It's simple really, what's that song that you've got stuck in your head today.

For me;

I just saw the movie "Call Me By Your Name" and can't get it out of my head. Fantastic movie (the book as well). I highly recommend seeing it when it comes to your area. I drove an hour and a half to see it yesterday. Totally worth it.

I've never seen a movie end quite like this one does. Elio's emotions play out before us as we listen to this song, Visions of Gideon by Sufjan Stevens. Rumour has it that Timothy Chalamet, the actor who played Elio, was listening to the recording during his performance, so it is perfectly choreographed with the song and, as you'll see, the end titles of the movie. But I wasn't watching the titles, just the raw emotion on Elio's face play out. The artistic effect of all this, the acting, the song, the setting in front of the fire, the director's decision to lay the titles over the scene all underline the thematic antagonism that Time plays in the movie. Elio and Oliver run out of Time. Elio is reaching an emotional crescendo while the movie is in the process of ending and you just don't want it to end. Brilliant.

Enjoy Visions of Gideon: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=NJLs-4J5ZYk

Here's another Sufjan song, Mystery of Love, that's also from the movie and fits perfectly with for the movie: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=N0CP9zpbmAQ

See the movie when you have a chance. Even better read the book. But, fair warning, they will stick with you.
