Cannes 2017: 'Loveless' Review

After loving Elena (and willing to fight anyone about how underrated The Banishment is), I was a little underwhelmed by Leviathan, which helped bring Russian filmmaker Andrey Zvyagintsev a larger American audience. (It was nominated for Best Foreign Language Film.) Well, his latest has restored my faith. Loveless is a real stunner, telling the story of an unhappy couple about ready to divorce who discover their 12-year-old son has gone missing. Chilly, chilly, chilly. Brilliant, brilliant, brilliant. My review is up at Paste.
