Love Lies Bleeding, a film with an ultimate lesbian-gaze in which all the words from the title are mentioned. This is absolutely not your average film, and has the potential to become a cult classic. A typical A24 film. With every character that appears on screen you think 'wtf' at least once, and as the story progresses that thought often comes up. I find it very difficult to give a grade for this. I really appreciate the movie. It seems like a real love-it or hate-it, but I'm somewhere in between and rounding up.

I also find it difficult to appreciate the film at its true value. The film starts off a bit slowly and when it gets exciting - according to the usual pattern that the main characters have gotten themselves into trouble and have to find a way out while at the same time old corpses fall out of the proverbial closet - it also gets crazier (more crazy) with certain drugs play a leading role, making it almost a comedy. That caricature has been there from the beginning (e.g. the behavior of the girl who is in love with Lou) and degenerates into the grotesque and bizarre in the style we know from, for example, Aster (Hereditary). The silliness, such as how the steroids transform Jackie into a kind of Hulk, as well as the bizarre twists are somewhat distracting, while the story is actually well put together and has familiar themes - how love can get in the way of simple solutions, how daughters who want to distance themselves from their criminal father still have their way - take on an original form.

It's 1989 and Daisy [Anna Baryshnikov] is hitchhiking from Oklahoma to Las Vegas to participate in a bodybuilding competition in Las Vegas. That's how she ends up in a small desert town near a gym. There she has an affair with administrator Lou [Kristen Stewart] who offers her shelter and anabolic steroids. Lou is embroiled in a family feud with her sister Beth [Jena Malone], who does nothing to stop the domestic violence of her husband JJ [Dave Franco], and father Lou Sr. [Ed Harris], who smuggles weapons into Mexico and has involved Lou in some settlements in the past. Glass complements this bloody, unpredictable crime thriller with a pleasant dose of dark humor. The cinematography and editing are also excellent.
