In the end, however, LOVE AFTER LOVE is the kind of movie I respect but don't really enjoy. Grief can be numbing and LOVE AFTER is after a time as well.
October 23, 2018
A gorgeously wrought drama, and hard to believe it's only Harbaugh's first, but it buzzes from the anxious energy that comes from searching for what's next

So what does Love After Love deliver? Performances. Harbaugh and Mendelsohn are less interested with plot than creating an environment to let their characters screw up.
April 27, 2018
I wish the pieces of Harbaugh's domestic jigsaw fit more elegantly together. Sometimes, it seems as if he's tripping into scenes the way a person might stumble into a darkened room before turning on the light.
April 27, 2018
The film is a bit messy at times, but considering the circumstances on screen, that seems appropriate.
April 27, 2018
The story of Love After Love is one of grieving, and it's about that process in a specific, particularly sad sort of way.
April 25, 2018
Maybe the most damaging factor is that [director Russ] Harbaugh does nothing to establish that the paterfamilias, first seen in reasonably good health at a family gathering, is such an emotional touchstone to his wife and sons.
April 19, 2018
It's a film intentionally adrift, rambling between a loose succession of family gatherings and dinner parties with subdued style, the camera feeling like just another person at the edge of the room.
April 17, 2018
An unflinching portrait of how grief can unravel a tightknit family in ways both banal and heart-wrenching.
April 5, 2018
Challenging, unflinching and deeply honest.
April 3, 2018
Yet this movie, for all its laudable aspects, left me wanting for more, a personally frustrating turn of events to say the least.

Andie MacDowell [displays] one of the best performances of her career.
March 30, 2018
First-time director Russell Harbaugh presents grief as it is, in all its pain and ugliness, rather than using the convenient, uplifting short-hand that Hollywood prefers.
March 30, 2018
I found it a great masochistic experience.
March 30, 2018
The three leads are particularly strong, with MacDowell getting a rare, meaty role.
March 30, 2018
This first-time feature from writer/director Russell Harbaugh has an understated, intimate, pointillist style, with a cool jazz score that matches its improvisational tone.
March 30, 2018
Central to the film's vision of love and loss is a certain realism marked by unshowy performances, un-stagy mise-en-scne, and eye-level, frequently handheld camerawork.
March 29, 2018
Writer-director Russell Harbaugh's Love After Love is a remarkably cool-headed, composed piece of work.
March 29, 2018
Intimate, brittle tale of a family quietly spinning apart after the death of the patriarch.
March 29, 2018
This unflinching debut feature from Russ Harbaugh delivers something rarely seen in American movies: a warts-and-all examination of extended grief.
