Loveless gives us a multicourse meal of social ills, too dispersed to feel like a thesis, yet too chilly to feel like a raw, unbridled tantrum.

It has a hypnotic intensity and unbearable ambiguity which is maintained until the very end.

Novikov is on screen for only a few minutes and has little dialogue, but that's all this young actor needs to make a devastating impression.

Zvyagintsev once again demonstrates his remarkable gift for creating perfectly formed dramatic microcosms that illustrate the bred-in-the-bone pathologies of Russian society.
