Review of Two Lovers Starring Gwyneth Paltrow and Joaquin Phoenix

Summer Netflix Challenge: Gwyneth in Two Lovers

Editor S here! As I pushed onward in my Netflix challenge with Gwyneth Paltrow, I felt that it made the most sense to pick my next movie based on current events, that is, Joaquin Phoenix's glorious re-entrance into acting. The last movie he made before he claimed to be retiring for a rap career was this, Two Lovers. He plays Leonard, a man torn between two women — Michelle (Paltrow) and Sandra (Vinessa Shaw), so it seemed like the perfect time to watch.

Heartbreaking and cerebral, this might be my favorite performance from Phoenix — and maybe even from Paltrow. Her role — as an emotional wreck that Leonard can't help but love — is kind of a departure for the Oscar winner, but she's so tortured and distant that it brought me back to appreciating what a fantastic actress she is. If Paltrow made more movies like this, I'd be a bigger fan.

I dunno. I saw this movie a while ago and wasn't blown away. For what it was, the acting was great. The storyline? Overdone. And I'm tired of seeing Phoneix as this monotone tortured soul. It's strange that I'm straying so far from the positive review of this film -- maybe I'll have to go back and re-watch. But I do recall being extremely bored.
