James Gray United States, 2008

Francisco Leitão's rating of the film Two Lovers

Two lines into each character and we already know what kind of people they want to depict but it never feels like the director has any clue of how they're minds could work. The depression, the bipolar disease, the wealthy middle aged that doesn't leave his wife, the addict, the class differences between the characters... all these very stong elements belong to the story but we never feel them or believe in them.
