May 10, 2018
An emotionally stark indictment of middle class malaise and the broken promises of an empire, Loveless is one of the best films you'll see this year.
Full Review | Original Score: 4.5/5
May 9, 2018
Beautifully shot and acted, the story and themes get deep under the skin
Full Review | Original Score: 4.5/5
April 27, 2018
A masterpiece, a brutal, uncompromising, stunningly well crafted and extraordinarily observant depiction of modern life, relationships, parenting, and society ... At every turn it is revealing and stunningly precise about the human condition.
Full Review | Original Score: 5/5
April 26, 2018
Thin on character and narrative.
Full Review | Original Score: 70/100
April 26, 2018
A fairly devastating critique of contemporary Russian life, now that such a thing is possible.
Full Review | Original Score: 7/10
April 25, 2018
Something vital, his films intimates, has been lost in Russia, and perhaps not only in Russia - some warmth of the soul, a sense of civic accountability. As with the child, no one even noticed it slipping away.

Sometimes [Andrey Zvyagintsev] can fall into the didactic, his symbolism and criticisms too obvious, but at his best (thankfully most of the film) the director applies an admirable subtly. [Full Review in Spanish]
April 24, 2018
It's a kind of thriller, but without easy resolution. Zvyagintsev does not deal in reassurance: there is none to be had in this cold, hard place.
Full Review | Original Score: 4/5
April 20, 2018
Is this what Russia is really like today? Obviously there's more to it than this, but this cold yet extremely gifted director's dissection of his society is never less than riveting.
Full Review | Original Score: 4/5
April 20, 2018
It's the kind of premise that - in the hands of a more sentimental director - might deliver a glimmer of reconciliation between the two, but Zvyagintsev is not a filmmaker interested in letting his characters off the hook.
April 19, 2018
A haunting, heavy-hearted affair...
Full Review | Original Score: 4/5
April 18, 2018
An unapologetic lamentation, not just over the state of its leading characters' lives but also -- like Leviathan -- over the state of life today in Vladimir Putin's deeply apathetic Russia.
Full Review | Original Score: 3/5
April 17, 2018
The premise seems to be taken from a Ruth Rendell novel. The search for the kid will not unite the marriage but to spread the lack of love between man and woman to all those around them. (Complete review in Spanish in newspaper Reforma).

April 17, 2018
Andrey Zvyagintsev, who wrote the script along with Oleg Negin, makes this a merciless film, implacable, severe and uncomfortable... [Full review in Spanish]
Full Review | Original Score: 4.5/5
April 12, 2018
A depressing but engrossing Russian blend of a domestic drama and police procedural crime drama
Full Review | Original Score: B+
April 10, 2018
...Zvyagintsev shows us characters wasting their lives and becoming morally adrift...
April 10, 2018
Zvyagintsev is a powerful teller of the truth, and his latest is a modern-day masterpiece.
Full Review | Original Score: 5/5
March 29, 2018
All three leads give subtly wrenching performances that wouldn't have been out of place in Ingmar Bergman's oeuvre.
Full Review | Original Score: 3/5
March 28, 2018
'Loveless' is not so much about finding the boy, but about how easily a person can be discarded or abandoned by parents who - because of their resentments and recriminations - already have moved onto new lives.
Full Review | Original Score: 3.5/4
March 26, 2018
Loveless is about a state of mind, a lament, an indictment of crimes against the human spirit.
