Io sono l'amore

Luca Guadagnino Italy, 2009

Jake Cole's rating of the film I Am Love

Like a Ferrari towing a yacht, I Am Love is luxurious but lugubrious and absurd. It wants to be a melodrama, but it also knows that the word has become a slur lately, so it tries to split the difference between opera and glacial Euro-art drama. Swinton is great, because she's Tilda F&@!ing Swinton, but this borders on the interminable.
