James Gray's "Two Lovers" (2008)
It's a very great movie! Such a pleasure to confront a relatively new director with such original sense of humour and a profound sense of light. There were moments my eyes could not follow the story cause the three-dimensional rhythms were too interesting...
Many thanks goes to Zach Campbell, who wrote in 2007: "I think James Gray may count as my favorite American filmmaker working in Hollywood right now". I like Michael Mann more, but James Gray isn't far below. You can read his post here, it's full of wonderful commentary on We Own the Night, which I haven't seen. Most of what Zach says is also true for Two Lovers.
