“‘The Killing of Two Lovers’ Shoots Its Hollow Heartbreak Beautifully”

I can’t help making that joke. Sorry*.

The Killing of Two Lovers falls under the category of “movies I wish I liked more than I actually do.” This is the second movie this year** where “it looks too pretty” is my central complaint, which feels like a real bullshit criticism except when “pretty” distracts from abiding emptiness. I don’t care how nice your movie looks. If you can’t back it up with story, you’re just shooting pictures.

*No, I’m not.
