Rose Glass’ bigger, bolder follow-up to 2019’s Saint Maude only serves to confirm that she is up there with some of the most distinctive and exciting cinematic voices of this still young century. Love Lies Bleeding transports you back to 1980s New Mexico. There, we meet Lou (Kristen Stewart), who works a dead-end job at a scuzzy gym and who needs something more in her life. That something comes when drifter and ambitious bodybuilder Jackie (Katy O’Brian) rocks into town. Their connection is immediate, and as their relationship blossoms, it soon hits a sizeable roadblock in the shape of Lou’s misogynistic and abusive brother-in-law, JJ (Dave Franco). Many reviews will categorize Love Lies Bleeding as a queer parable, or a revenge odyssey with a dash of Thelma and Louise, or even a forward-looking yet retro-feeling noir. It’s all those things, granted, but like Saint Maud, it thrillingly defies easy classification and is stronger for it. A question which resides at the core of Love Lies Bleeding: What wouldn’t you do for the person you passionately love?–euronews.culture
