Okay, I’m sorta lying. There’s not a ton of love here, not at first, because at first there’s mostly ego and animosity. It’s a rock ‘n roll story. It happens. What I like most about Love Spreads is how clearly it lays out the importance of each role in filmmaking – editing, directing, cinematography – without making them obvious. Love Spreads is not about the “best” editing being the “most” editing. It’s about how these basic choices impact the rhythm and tone of a story as it’s told.
The performances are great, too, with Alia Shawkat showing off how talented she is when she isn’t playing Maeby and Eiza González showing off that she’s a movie star.
