You feel for them. of course you do. Coming of age is a journey which none of us take lightly, yet still fulfills our emotional scars. But, increasingly, you are afraid of them. Or are you afraid? for them?
It’s a stress we are who we are, Such as HBO’s other recent “Can You Believe How Teenagers Are These Days?” Chain excitement, Accepts, but does not attempt to answer. Instead, debauchery and defacement, a fatal negligence as interpreted by this new generation, appears there and sits uncomfortably. What you are left with is how clearly you understand, and how much you cannot relate at all.
On the surface level, a lot of we are who we are Quite incredible.
It begins with 14-year-old Fraser (Jack Dylan Grazer) and his mom, Sarah (Chloe Sevaneg) and Maggie (Alice Braga) arriving at an army base outside a quiet, quirky and seductive Italian country town . Sarah performed her duties, leaving her esoteric son, to find her place among the litter of other inhabitants of a foreign army, though a more pleasantly free country. Whatever difficulties Fraser has, he can dispense with the bottle. vino rojo.
Before he starts talking, you understand that Fraser is an outbreak. His hair is bleached and unruly like a bleached mop. His nails have been painted yellow and black. He is wearing an orange hoodie over a leopard-print wide leg that falls through his shin, and his apple earbuds are exploding and exploding, as if to separate him from reality.
We follow him as he walks amok to the base, disappearing into his head and flashing only bits and pieces of dialogue over the music playing in his headphones, the camera often adopting his point of view as he searches.
Almost immediately there are clues to his developing sexual identity as he stumbles into the pool locker room and showers and turns on naked men. And there are clues to her mother and her non-traditional relationship with the behavior issues that underlie it. I am still unsure I understand why, after he suddenly slaps her in the face and calls her a fool, he starts to cradle and hug her. Maybe mysticism is the point?
Everyone knows who Fraser is, because he is the new kid, because he is the new kid from New York, because he is the new kid from New York, whose mother is the commander, and because he is the new kid from New York, whose mother is the commander and Also gay. It is a lot of qualifiers, descriptors and attention seekers for a person who, when it becomes clear, is not yet fully capable of describing himself.
Episode 2 listens to all the half-baked conversation in the periphery and the characters who seem to be lurking in the background during Fraser’s scenes and the recent tales narrating the narrative through them through the eyes of Katlin (Jordan Christine Seamon) Huh. Caitlin and Fraser become fast, intimate friends, a partnership that baffles the rest of their classmates and only makes sense to themselves. Those two people are not entirely sure who they are or who they want to be, taking solace in each other’s confusion.
The series is constantly bouncing back and forth between classmates and focus, chasing other classmates and families of Katilyn and Fraser for brief yarns before another character and fleeting adventure. This negligence culminates in a fourth episode, during a party for a forced wedding, when one of the older boys in the friend group discovers that his deployment is speeding.
The party is as mesmerizing as it is restless, a lilting ballet of carelessness as these children drink, wrestle, dance, destroy a house, do drugs, kiss, strip naked, fuck, gossip, and, It seems, just do your damnedest to capture their time. If there is one thing we are who we are What seems to be more widely explored, is: trouble and epiphanies juvenile discovery while simply trying to fill their days.
It’s a fascinating puzzle, and, in some ways, we are who we areThe most impressive win is. How do you capture the lives of teenagers finding ways to waste time, yet making television that seems to be on hold? Something that moves without a hook?
Guadagnino is able to capture the typical listlessness of that period of life — a decidedly bored disorientation — speaks for his intense emotional intelligence. He is able to visually transport his audience to the feeling of a special part of our own lives, as he most powerfully proves to be with Elio’s pain, in which longing was tortured. Call me by your name.
“He is able to visualize his audience for a sense of a particular part of our own lives, as he most powerfully proves to be with Elio’s pain, torturing longing in ‘Call Me By Your Name’.“
In that teens we are who we are There does not seem to be one for the music of the 80s and their phones are not the same as children today helping to discard things, such that the series is not set in a particular time period, but of all our collective teenagers for.
The actual setting is the morning of the 2016 election, which sporadically factors in what appears to be an outcome before it is fully realized. A certain “decency” when it comes to sexuality and gender embodies more recent narrative through cultural perspectives than anything else in the show.
Nevertheless, I watched four episodes made critics available to wait with warm anticipation for the “thing”, which clicks on how all these vibes, diversions, and spontaneous forces surround the lives of investor characters There have been – which rotates through so many circles – so much in this series, as if waiting. But this never happens. Whatever nectar you are expecting Guadagnino to finally get the package, at least in these first four hours, it will spill over the screen as it will.
It is not accidental that this limitless exploration, both as Guadagnino’s narrative structure and the ways in which the characters play with sexuality, sex, friendship, and family, contrasts with the conformity that gives the action its background Is: an army base.
Thoughts of goallessness, isolation and expectations are in constant battle. While these first four episodes focus on teenage characters, you are given a glimpse at the lives of the adults in the room who all feel as if they are unrelated to their own ways, as well as want to follow them. (Thanks to a mix of subtle performances from Sevanega, Braga, Faith Alabi and Scott Mascudi aka Kid QD, and underlining the character’s moments, you’re almost desperate to dive deeper into their arc.
we are who we are Sits comfortably in Guadagnino’s resort, tracking the interactions and experiences of non-Italians in Italy. Dialing the clock back to the inner workings of 14-year-olds Call me by your nameAllio makes this an interesting companion piece to the Oscar-nominated film.
but unlike CMBYN, In which pheromones were as synergistic as sweat in each hormone — and sun-soaked shots — as lush and horny as the cinema — things here are dusty and cumbersome. People are working class, the city less delightful and the vibes less grand and more concerned. No one knows how they feel, it is to clarify. We expect viewers we are who we are She will face the same struggle when she comes on the show.
