Call Me By Your Name Writer Slams Movie’s Lack Of Dick!

Film veteran James Ivory won his first Oscar this year for adapting Call Me By Your Name — but that doesn’t mean he thinks the final version was exactly right!

One key way in which the film falls short, in Ivory’s view? No dick!

Ivory tells the Guardian his script specifically referred to Elio and Oliver’s bodies being shown — but nudity clauses in Armie Hammer and Timothee Chalamet‘s contracts prevented it!

Director Luca Guadagnino has said shying away from the D was an artistic decision — a claim on which Ivory is literally calling B.S., saying:

“When Luca says he never thought of putting nudity in, that is totally untrue. He sat in this very room where I am sitting now, talking about how he would do it, so when he says that it was a conscious aesthetic decision not to – well, that’s just bullshit.”

Ha! Leave it to the man who made Howards End to spill tea that strong!

Ivory, who directed a few dozen films himself, thinks the lack of nudity is always a bit jarring in sex scenes:

“When people are wandering around before or after making love, and they’re decorously covered with sheets, it’s always seemed phoney to me. I never liked doing that. And I don’t do it, as you know.”

He then refers to his 1987 film Maurice, a gay love story adapted from the E.M Forster book and costarring a babyfaced Hugh Grant, and its key love scene:

“The two guys have had sex and they get up and you certainly see everything there is to be seen. To me, that’s a more natural way of doing things than to hide them, or to do what Luca did, which is to pan the camera out of the window toward some trees. Well. [derisive snort]”

We hope Luca and the boys give Ivory his heart’s desire (and all of ours, really!) in the much-hyped sequel.
