Feast of Love
Robert Benton directs this Oregon-set meditation on the permutations of love among a constellation of characters.
starstar
Film Review  October 5, 2007, by Marjorie Baumgarten
"...No one's cup runneth over, and it's unlikely that anyone will return for seconds. What Feast of Love lacks in nutritive value it makes up for with heaping wads of artificial sweeteners that coax each character's frown to turn upside down or find the silver lining in the sadness or latch on to any kind of handy cliché to keep the sorrow at bay..."

Gaspar Noé does the impossible: He gives us a boring, 3-D sex odyssey
starstarhalfstar
Film Review  November 13, 2015, by Josh Kupecki
"...When the news hit that Argentine/French director Gaspar Noé's new film would be a long-gestating dream project involving lovers engaged in unsimulated sex and shot in 3-D, my first thought was, "Ugh." My second thought was, "There will be a penis ejaculating toward the audience at some point." Alas (or happily, depending on your fancy), I am here to report that that second prediction comes true around two-thirds into Love, as an erect member faces the camera and showers the viewer with semen, which then may or may not elicit that initial thought (alternative responses include: "Oh, Gaspar, you're so provocative!" and also, "Ew."). Unfortunately, I was unable to experience this sensation in its entirety, as the distributor couldn't provide a 3-D press screening for this review, so I was left to ponder its lesser, 2-D analog..."

"...As romantic comedies go, Danish helmer Susanne Bier’s follow-up to her Oscar-winning In a Better World, percolates more than it froths – but that’s a good thing. Steeping in its flavors rather than chasing bubbly gags, Love Is All You Need breaks no new narrative ground but trusts the genre’s formulas to provide the underpinnings for a realistic comedy about marriage and its discontents..."
