Call Me By Your Name is one of 2017's highly praised and hyped films. It is about the romance between Elio, the son of a professor, and Oliver, his father's research assistant, as Oliver spends six weeks with Elio's family somewhere in Northern Italy. Of all the films circulating the awards circle, this is the one I am excited yet nervous to watch. With all its high praise, my expectations have been escalating and finally watching the film gave me an anxiety, hoping that it doesn't disappoint.
This is going to be short, since I don't think I'm ever going to digest what I just saw. The first Park Chan-wook film I saw was Stoker, and I loved that very much so I decided to stop putting off watching some of his Korean films from my watch list. I decided to go with Oldboy, which is the second film in the Vengeance trilogy (I don't think there's a need to watch the films in chronological order, but I might be wrong) because it was his most popular one, or at least the one I keep hearing of. It is about a man who seeks revenge to his captor after imprisoning him for 15 years. I knew the twist in the film beforehand, but I didn't realize how disturbing the entire ordeal was until I saw the film.
