Went to see the Russian language drama, Loveless
(2017) on the strength of its director, Andrey Zvyagintsev, the director of 2014's Oscar nominated black comedy, Leviathan
, a top film favorite film from that year.
His latest pulls no emotional punches between the two lead characters who are in the midst of a contentious separation/divorce only to have their 12 year old son disappear altogether. Great acting and stunning cinematography. The film is also scored like an existential horror film which only makes the film even more emotionally draining. A 9/10.
