    I don't really know what this was, and it didn't do a good job of trying to make me care.

  • Lovesong



    The performances are tremendous.

    The central relationship is also tremendous...for a couple brilliant scenes.

    The rest of the movie is good as slice-of-life stuff goes, but when you remember what the movie's supposed to be focusing on, a lot of it ends up feeling a little random.

    The filler is nuanced, realistic, and well-done...but I could still tell it was filler.

    (shoutout to it for being a lesbian-themed movie where parents and husbands, while present, aren't villains keeping them apart, though. it doesn't make the movie less frustrating to watch, but it's a change of pace at least.)

    Excellent, riveting film. Feels like Hitchcock made a Jazz Musician Psychological Drama, but slicker, wound even tighter, etc. Most intense movie theater experience of 2014 so far. Feels like a Best Picture Front-runner, to me anyway. Only con: Its early, sudden ending feels like a cop-out.
