Armie Hammer, Timothee Chalamet: Call Me by Your Name

Links to my reviews published this week in the Herald and Seattle Weekly.

Call Me by Your Name. “Although the material occasionally steers in the vicinity of a 1980s teen romance directed by Randall Kleiser (Summer Lovers fans, you know who you are), there’s enough torment and joy generated to cast a real spell. ” (Herald link here.)

Downsizing. “Its saving grace is the loopiness of its basic idea.” (Herald link here.)

Darkest Hour. “Aside from Oldman’s frisky pleasure in hamming it up, Darkest Hour collapses in a great pile of hogwash. ” (Herald link here.)

Jumanji: Welcome to the Jungle. “Johnson is in his usual self-parodying mode, and he banters well with the perpetually adrenalized Hart.”
