7PM: FEATURE FILM - LOVELESS is Ingmar Bergman's "Scenes from a Marriage" dipped in battery acid. The story centers on 12-year-old Alexey, a shy, solitary kid who spends hours reading in his room or wandering alone through a grim winter landscape. But really he’s just the collateral damage in his parents’ mortally wounded marriage, a union grown so toxic that their mere presence in the same room seems to release its own poisonous gas. Russian star director Andrey Zvyagintsev (Leviathan, The Return) shoots most of his scenes in long, unbroken takes that feel viscerally lonely even when there are dozens of people in the frame. And the metaphor of monster parenting — along with the ambient stream of grim national news burbling from nearby TVs and radios — seem pointedly aimed at a larger spiritual and societal decay; something both numb and rotten at the core. Jury Prize winner at Cannes 2017 and Oscar nominee for this year’s Best Foreign Language Film.
