    Down with Love

    ★★★★½

    Discovering movies like Down With Love is a major reason I love Letterboxd. This film clearly made approximately zero cultural impact, because despite being in high school when it came out, I had no recollection of it whatsoever. Even if I had, a 2003 rom-com starring Renee Zellweger and Ewan McGregor wouldn't have been high on my list of priorities. But a couple of people I follow on here reviewed it positively, I added it to a watchlist, I'm looking…

    First, the good. Murnau's direction is outstanding. There are creative uses of double exposure. There are mercifully few title cards. Every shot is well framed, and a few are really remarkable. To the extent this movie works at all, it's because of the phenomenal direction and the beautiful score.

    That brings us to the bad. I'm sort of shocked that this remains a nearly unanimous classic,…
