“Love Lies Bleeding” is the name of this romantic thriller that has stood out at the festival. At the Rotten Tomatoesthe work already has 90% critical approval, while in the Metacritic the average is 74.

To the EntertainmentWeeklywe are faced with a “brutal, bloody and disconcerting journey” but it is still worth it.

A Variety believes that the feature film is a noir “that exceeds our expectations, but arrives where it should, in a place where even brave people need to go to extremes”.

Rolling Stone warns that this is not a slow burn but rather a “film that arrives hot and leaves in a blaze of glory”.

In turn, the site highlights that not all of the bolder and more ambitious moves completely work, especially with regard to the frantic ending, “but that’s a minor complaint for a film that confirms that Glass is a great talent with an uncompromising vision.”

The praise is not just for the director and is also extended to the two protagonists, the Vulture says that “Stewart, who in her best work turns anxiety into poetry, has probably never been more vulnerable, and O’Brian displays a boldness that comes not only from her extraordinary physique, but also from an inner innocence she brings to her character.” .

“Love Lies Bleeding” is scheduled to premiere on March 8th on Portuguese cinemas.
