Critic Reviews for Death in Love
Yakin and his cast are up to the job, but the current they tap into is so charged it proves overpowering. Still, their bravery is commendable.
There's something seriously wrong when you assemble actors this good -- and can't believe a single stilted word coming out of their mouths.
How do you explain a movie as hermetic and perverse and ultimately repugnant as Death in Love?
It's not as if we learn anything or feel any insight or catharsis from watching his characters destroy themselves and others.
Audience Reviews for Death in Love
Boaz Yakin has created a provocative, perverse, angry and highly uncomfortable film that has one too many twists for its own good. I suspect the audience who will like this film is much smaller than the one who will hate it. I found it to a fascinating and surreal exploration into psychological and pathological self-loathing. The use of the The Holocaust is a very bold and repugnant choice -- but this film is absolutely riveting. The acting is top notch. Bisset gives a solid and unforgettable performance. While the film verges on prevention is somehow manages to pull back just enough to leave an impact. Yakin's film is as ambitious as it is disgusting. There are so many dark themes regarding human nature and survival it is both impossible to simply dismiss it and nearly impossible to fully embrace it. But, in my opinion, this is a haunting and powerful little film. Be warned: a movie about the darkness of humanity, pain and survival is not going to be suitable for popcorn and a date.
I was surprised by the number of "name" actors in this low-budget movie. But, from the opening sequence, I was impressed with the writing and directing and can understand why they would want to be associated with this project, because it was a true work of art. That being said, apparently this movie is not for everyone. But if you like something different that pushes the envelope give it a shot.
What a terribly depressing movie. I watched about half of this and I wanted to slap Lucas for the ridiculous character that he was playing. There was absolutely nothing impressive to convince me to watch the whole movie.
