May be the most raw and visceral cinematic portrayal of infatuation I've ever seen, with nearly every shot conveying aching, unrequited desire.

In Dolan, the hipster crowd might well have found their latest poster boy.

Who knew being young, beautiful and hip could be so tedious?
Full Review | Original Score: 2/5
May 28, 2011
It's likeable enough, though there's far too much slow motion.
May 27, 2011
A subtle and painfully amusing battle of wills.
Full Review | Original Score: 4/5
May 27, 2011
Lushly, not to say swishly made, the whole thing is really just a pseudo-poetic trifle.

There is something rather flimsy about Heartbeats. That said, it certainly shows that Dolan has quite a career ahead of him.

Hipster's delight.

Every frame is a joy to look at, and the three leads very appealing.

May 26, 2011
Ultimately, Dolan's image-led central characters and their shallow, bitchy concerns won't appeal to everyone, but those who've experienced l'amour fou themselves will find plenty to enjoy.

Dolan has a gift but he hasn't fully unwrapped it.
Full Review | Original Score: 2/5
May 25, 2011
It can seem as if style is all in Dolan's films, but as well as revelling in its pleasures, they also dissect its limitations - sometimes without anaesthetic.
Full Review | Original Score: 4/5
May 25, 2011
Opening with a recurring set of interviews with love scorned young people, Heartbeats lays down a tonne of 20-something sarcasm communicated through tongue-clicks, snide smirks and eye-rolls galore.

Sumptuously photographed and elegantly stylised, Heartbeats' exterior is as seductive as Schneider's R-Pattzalike. Dig beneath the surface, though, and there ain't much there.

A fizzing delight that tips a nod to the masters of the French New Wave without sacrificing its identity or sense of freshness. Recommended.

At 21, actor-filmmaker Dolan proves that I Killed My Mother was no fluke. This is even bolder filmmaking that continually takes risks with its material
Full Review | Original Score: 4.5/5

Ultimately what makes "Heartbeats" tick is that it's less about love objects and more about friends who are stuck with each other, for better or worse.
Full Review | Original Score: 3/4
April 28, 2011
Too many musical interludes, too much posing, and generally not enough meat in the sandwich.
April 15, 2011
Dolan's characters may for the most part be keenly observed, but it all becomes eye-rolling when he takes his stylization into overdrive.
April 15, 2011
Spends 100 minutes dispensing painful examples of how infatuation turns people into idiots.
