A new film that equals or even surpasses her landmark debut IN BETWEEN DAYS
15 March 2016 | by (United States) – See all my reviews

As we celebrate the official 10th Anniversary of the mumblecore genre, it's exciting to see the only female filmmaker (to be included in the cinematic hipster scene) presenting a new film that equals or even surpasses her landmark debut IN BETWEEN DAYS (2006). This time, actress Riley Keough, who also stars in the Amy Seimetz's new Starz TV adaptation of THE GiRLFRiEND EXPERiENCE (which also premiered at Sundance this year), takes the emotional reigns with gusto as Sarah, a young mother who is completely caught off guard by the sudden reappearance of her college friend Mindy (Jena Malone).

Much like So's overlooked FOR ELLEN (2010), which Paul Dano subtly referenced in Paolo Sorrentino's YOUTH (2015), the power in LOVESONG (named after The Cure's song) lies within the character's inability to express his true feelings. Independent Spirit Awards could be on the horizon for this bundle of true love, but more importantly, make sure you see this on the big screen so that you too can be transported into the whirling clouds during what has to be the most breathtaking sequence on a ferris wheel since Carol Reed's The THiRD MAN (1948).

This is taken from my 2016 Sundance Film Festival wrap up.
