  2. Effendi Ben Smith-Malick's rating of the film Two Lovers

    I counted at least 8 lovers in this. There was Joaquin, that vapid chick who's married to the dude from Coldplay, a much more attractive woman, Joaquin's parents, Casey Jones, the attractive chick's parents. Oh also there was Joaquin's ex in flashbacks. That's 9. 9 lovers. Read your own script, dude.

  3. Catarina C Gomes's rating of the film Two Lovers

    I was supposed to watch it today but my parents can't catch a sex scene and endure it like everybody else.

    My new favourite filmmaker.

  5. Isabel Ferreira's rating of the film Two Lovers

  6. Kays Vanderest's rating of the film Two Lovers

    Brilliant. Incredible, astonishing filmmaking. High volume emotional filmmaking. An absolute and complete masterpiece from an understated master. 5/5. I LOVE THIS FILM.

  7. Emily O's rating of the film Two Lovers

    Something in particular that strikes me about this film: Two Lovers harkens to a doomed teen romance, in a sense. Here is Leonard, a man child, struggling to create a life independent from his parents (rebellion!). However, his attempts to break free from familial obligations are continually marred by his stunted maturity (teen!). Also, this is the first film I've actually liked Gwyneth Paltrow in. Yes, remarkable.

  8. Alisdair Hurst's rating of the film Two Lovers

    Acted with a beautiful subtlety, shot with a cold and removed yet intimate quality, everything given time to breathe and move at a natural pace. A wonderful piece of film-making as quiet and restrained as its central character.

  9. lukasbicho's rating of the film Two Lovers

    Una gran película, te deja huella, y eso es lo mejor que se puede decir de una cinta, que no sea simple divertimento; pero va más allá del poso, porque la historia que cuenta, y cómo se mete Phoenix en la piel del personaje, hace que el espectador se sienta arrastrado hacia él, hacia sus elecciones y sus dudas perpetuas. Gran fotografía y música.

  10. Miasma's rating of the film Two Lovers

    As my third James Gray in a row, this was a marked improvement.

  11. meg1's rating of the film Two Lovers

    I experienced this film as superficial and tedious in its synthetic depiction and reductive dismissal of the reality of experience in life of men with Leonard’s CV and how others respond to them. I’m surprised so many have fawned over it and found it “honest”. I thought it was hollow, phoney and unconvincing, an emperor with no clothes indeed. 2.5/5

  12. Ryan M.'s rating of the film Two Lovers

    Can't wait to watch this again immediately.

  13. Lee's rating of the film Two Lovers

    Joaquin Phoenix is mesmerizing. Stunning film.

  14. Bjanicas's rating of the film Two Lovers

    Let me speak to the silly little me from 2009: three stars, seriously? Today I rewatched this movie and felt completely devastated. Now I won't be able to forget that final guitar melody for a while. Hopefully. https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=KV30Zh3vaIM

  15. As'ad's rating of the film Two Lovers

    The only reason to see this, is to watch Phoenix in his last film before "I'm Still Here". Great performance, not such a good film.

  16. PatriciaFlorrick's rating of the film Two Lovers

    This was simply one of the most cringe-worthy films I've ever seen.

  17. Miguel Ferreira's rating of the film Two Lovers

    James Gray shows us, with the most classic and therefore the most modern filmmaking of today, the good gone days. Old values we thought were gone from our world forever. People come out of the shadows - to love or to destroy, no one filmed them with so much respect and care before. In the end, the full room becomes empty with the strongest embrace of cinema's history.

  18. Patrick's rating of the film Two Lovers

    This film might seem predictable and as if it is not doing much of anything. At times life seems predictable and as if it is not doing much of anything. However, as with life, what keeps it interesting is people and what is going on inside their heads, the acting facilitates this allowing us to project into the minds of the characters. In my opinion this was the strength in this film.

  19. Cody Hoskins's rating of the film Two Lovers

    This was the most realistic love story I'd ever seen. The characters were so believable and never over-the-top. The subtle emotions and the quiet atmosphere made it beautiful and haunting. It really captures what everyday life in an urban environment is like with its depressing and bright days, personified through Joaquin Phoenix's character, that it was moving and heartbreaking.

  20. Dimitri's rating of the film Two Lovers

    The beach scene at the end is definitely inspired by Truffaut. Marvelous.

  21. LaTortula's rating of the film Two Lovers

    Isabella Rossallini's stare is memorizing. Other players are all people I've known. The tragedy: women scooping men.

  22. João Eça's rating of the film Two Lovers

    james gray's best film. period

  23. N. C.'s rating of the film Two Lovers
