An unusually perceptive examination of fraternal rivalry and failed ambition.
A 2010 Sundance favorite, this inventive (and inventively thrifty) character study from Austin indie stalwart Bryan Poyser never flinches from the intractable sibling resentment at its core.
It's among the most unjustly underseen American indies of the year.
It lingers in the mind, thanks largely to its trio of actors -- especially Alex Karpovsky, who brings a riveting sense of spontaneity to depicting the younger brother's slow-burning rage.
Designed to make you laugh and squirm, Lovers of Hate does more of the latter.
The film is at its best as a comedy milking an elegantly simple locked-room premise.
Doubek, Karpovsky, and Kafka should be commended for making their characters thoroughly unappealing while eschewing villainous flourishes.
Transforms from an awkward-and unsatisfying-mumblecore comedy to a surprisingly intimate look at the ways people deal with hurt.
Often feels like a film school exercise in how to handle three major characters in mostly one location ... doesn't skimp in the key area of complicated relationships
Lovers of Hate would be a family tragedy if the immature antics of the three characters didn't send you ping-ponging from sympathetic chuckles to guffaws of disgust.
Lovers of Hate does a superb job of tapping into a lot of our worst nightmares with some dark, intelligent comedy, and then completely screws us over by making it relatable and believable.
An experience that's strange, unsettling and wholly unpredictable.
