EP. 318 — Call Me By Your Name

This week, to celebrate the release of Luca Guadagnino’s Challengers, Paul and Amy break down the 2018 film Call Me By Your Name, starring Timothée Chalamet (sorry, no Zendaya in this one). The two talk about the beauty of the film’s title, Guadagnino’s obsessive messiness, and the delicate CGI’ing of a certain actor’s nether region. Plus, this movie has us all nostalgic over our first loves and our first heartbreaks.

 

Next week, Paul and Amy take a look at the 1991 film, Point Break, in honor of The Fall Guy release. Check out this week’s spotlight episode from the Unspooled archives, Brokeback Mountain here: https://www.earwolf.com/episode/brokeback-mountain-2/
