James Gray United States, 2008

David R Williams's rating of the film Two Lovers

Jeremy Carr wrote "poignant melodrama and carefully considered art film, without any pretention whatsoever." Sadly I find just the opposite...melodramatic yes but hardly poignant. Neither carefully considered nor art. And heavily pretentious. You never forget that Joaquin Phoenix is Joaquin Phoenix or that Gwyneth Paltrow is Gwyneth Paltrow. Both actors wearing shallow characters going through the motions.
