3.0 out of 5 stars No need to make this point again., June 7, 2012
This review is from: This Is Not a Love Song (DVD)
This is an extremely difficult film to watch. Most of us already know that the world is often a brutally cruel place where the destruction of innocence is mere happenstance, and stupidity and insularity reign supreme. There's no need to make this point again. Nevertheless, the members of the cast, especially the two leads, play their parts to near perfection. Perhaps this is why it's so easy to identify with Heaton and Spike, even when Spike is at his most annoying. Rural life and those who live it are decidedly not romanticized or favorably contrasted with the grime and graffiti that plague the lives of the urban working class. Some viewers may be put off by the portrayal of the vengeance seekers as demonstrably more evil than their hapless, ineffectual, socially lost prey. Yes, the irony may be a bit heavy, but it seems believable enough. All things considered, however, I think I would have been better off not watching this film. My outlook is bleak enough as it is.
