The Little Death (aka A Funny Kind of Love) and The Overnight movie review: sex tragi-comedies

The Little Death The Overnight green light

Hooray for movies about sex and love that aren’t about teenagers trying to get laid but adults still trying to figure it all out.
I’m “biast” (pro): nothing

I’m “biast” (con): nothing

(what is this about? see my critic’s minifesto)

Hooray for a couple of grownup movies about sex and love and the intersection between the two. Hooray for a couple of movies about hangups and neuroses and anxieties about our bodies and our desires that aren’t about teenagers trying to get laid but adults still trying to figure it all out. (Sorry, teenagers trying to get laid. It doesn’t necessarily get better once you do.)


See also my #WhereAreTheWomen rating of The Overnight for its representation of girls and women.

If you’re tempted to post a comment that resembles anything on the film review comment bingo card, please reconsider.
