The twink-on-college daddy love story Call Me By Your Name takes place in the 1980s, so it would be a crime if the makers didn’t include one of the oh-so-many musical jewels from that time. They did, and Sony Pictures Classics released a clip of Armie Hammer feeling every part of the beat while dancing to Love My Way by the The Psychedelic Furs. Armie is dancing like a frat boy whose coke buzz hasn’t ended even though the party is over and the lights have turned on. Dancing like nobody’s watching: Armie is.
Even though Armie Hammer has the rhythm of an actual hammer, the curly-topped twink (played by Timothée Chalamet) is feeling the awkward moves that he’s laying down. Armie’s dancing has also inspired someone to create an Armie Dancing To Twitter account, which is basically this scene paired with a bunch of different songs. But to me, the real master of dance in this clip is the girl with the Ogilvie home perm and polka dot body suit who slides into the shot at the 0:26 mark and steals our gazes. Now that is someone who knows how to translate the music of The Psychedelic Furs through dance!
I haven’t read the book or the seen the movie, so I have no idea if this dance scene goes down before or after the peach fucking scene. Armie is into it, so if this dance scene happens after the peach fucking scene, then I guess eating the combination of peach and jizz gives you tons of energy.
Here’s Timothée and Armie at the BFI London Film Festival premiere of Call Me By Your Name the other night.
