Man in Love

Man in Love ★★★★★

They had us in the first half, not gonna lie.

Wonderfully lives up to the genre-clash premise of a manic, merciful gangster collector helplessly falling for one of his debtors. A well-tuned mix of violent confrontations, slow-burn problematic-till-adorable extortion turned into romance, touching family drama and social critique, with funny moments all around. Then, it builds into this grand, obliterating, unapologetic melodrama that's equal parts beautiful and the saddest movie of all time that really turns on the waterworks.
