What are people saying?

  • inquisita's rating of the film The Lovers

    Sometimes Lovers's “So intimate, [...] that its soul Should be resurrected only among friends Some two or three, who will not touch the bloom That is rubbed and questioned in the concert room.”, that it is alcove, private-screening cinema, not one for crowded halls. Then awkwardness takes over it like rash & you wonder what they were thinking. Uneven, bumpy ride, sprinkled with elemental and architectonic splendours.
