‘Call Me by Your Name,’ ‘Phantom Thread’ Rule International Cinephile Society Awards

Two very different love stories split the top prizes at the awards, voted on by film critics, academics and industry pros worldwide.

Perhaps because it broke so late in the season, Paul Thomas Anderson’s surprise six-time Oscar nominee “Phantom Thread” under-performed a bit on the critics’ award circuit, bagging fewer prizes than its adoring critical reception might suggest. But it made up for lost time in the International Cinephile Society honors, voted on by over 100 critics, academics and industry professionals worldwide: Luca Guadagnino’s “Call Me By Your Name” won best picture, but Anderson’s film ran it close and ultimately took five awards, the most of any film, including best director.

Indeed, the two films’ tallies were almost in perfect balance. While Guadagnino’s gay coming-of-age romance also took best adapted screenplay and both male acting prizes for Timothée Chamalet and Michael Stuhlbarg, Anderson’s more eccentric love story won best original screenplay and the female acting categories for Vicky Krieps (finally getting some attention this season) and Lesley Manville. Only an additional best score prize for Jonny Greenwood put “Phantom Thread” a nose ahead in the final count.

While that pair of films consumed most of the oxygen, two other titles earned multiple honors: French AIDS activist drama “BPM (Beats Per Minute)” won best best ensemble and best foreign language film, while “Blade Runner 2049” was honored for its dazzling cinematography and production design.

Meanwhile, a special 15th anniversary prize was given to Leos Carox’s surreal 2012 odyssey “Holy Motors,” voted the best winner of the ICS’s first 15 years.
