Ratings & Reviews

  1. Katya Kazbek's rating of the film Swoon

    Important story but told in an excessively confusing fashion, with very unevenly distributed emphasis. It seems as if the film can't decide whether to be a true crime dramatization, or a sensual, sad story. Either way, it could be a great social drama, and instead, leaves a taste of art-school in one's mouth. (I adored the scene of picking warblers out of his briefs, though.)

  2. Wee Hunk's rating of the film Swoon

    Definitely my favorite adaptation of the story of Leopold and Loeb. Moody, and beautifully shot.

  3. santiago alzate botero's rating of the film Swoon

    i "netflix and chilled" with someone to this movie and we made out awkwardly and it's not the movie's fault but i'll probably never watch it in full

  4. Samuel Donath's rating of the film Swoon

    Tom Kalin needs make more films! Swoon is fantastic.

  5. Mx Nihil's rating of the film Swoon

    "I'm a believer in equal opportunity homicide, I also want to claim the right to kill with rage and murder for irrational reasons and obsessive passion in the same way heterosexuals have had the latitude to do so in the history of storytelling since storytelling has begun." - Tom Kalin

  6. Pymo's rating of the film Swoon

    A chant d'amour in Brest...

  7. Kelvin Thompson's rating of the film Swoon

    Very strikingly directed, but thematically pointless, and socially irresponsible. Unpleasant for the sake of being unpleasant.

  8. Wortzik's rating of the film Swoon

    Though it goes beyond Rope and Compulsion in the sense of presenting Leopold & Loeb finally as they were (and out of the Hays Code tradition, so they're finally a couple who share romantic moments instead of implied scenes), Swoon doesn't get near the grandiosity of the classic fictional movies but it's a good film, brilliantly well-acted by the lead actors.

  9. Adam GR's rating of the film Swoon

    Straight people have Romeo and Juliet, us gays have Leopold and Loeb.
