All Critics (91) | Top Critics (20)

Zvyagintsev has always been wildly ambitious, sometimes to a fault, and Loveless is perhaps his most encompassing indictment of Russian society.

There's something profoundly affecting in its ugly truths, a sliver that gets under the skin and stays there.

February 15, 2018 | Rating: A- | Full Review…

It's relentlessly cold-hearted that you get the sense that Zhenya and Boris might prefer it if their son doesn't turn up - they are so deeply selfish and resentful of his existence..Loveless is a beautifully shot and elegantly constructed film.

After his last two dissections of modern Russia, Zvyagintsev takes a more people-focused than system-exposing approach this time to laying bare his country's psychological fault lines.
