I Am Love


No surprise that Tilda Swinton is flawless as ever in this astonishing film. Seeing her come alive through the transformation of a love affair (a classic one: passionate and impossible) is as beautiful and sudden as when grief comes knocking, awake like a blackbird and violent in its reach. Each frame looks like it could have taken years to build; camera angles are as careful as calligraphy and John Adams’ music as startling as the consequent turn of events.

It felt like nothing I’d ever seen before, and I’ve been thinking about it all day.
