The Killing Of Two Lovers
Cutdown & Socials
Dir. Robert Machoian
Robert Machoian’s terse, Utah-set drama explores the anguish of a couple whose relationship has disintegrated, but with only one of them wanting out.
Played out in long takes, amidst a landscape that dwarfs its residents, The Killing of Two Lovers skilfully maps out the complex terrain of a marriage in freefall, holding off judgement of characters’ actions until we are fully immersed in their lives.
