Crazy Love is probably one of the more bizarre documentaries i’ve seen in a while. Here’s a great review of the film by Eric D. Snider.
Ideally, you would watch “Crazy Love” without knowing anything about it beyond what’s contained in these first few paragraphs. It is a documentary about two New Yorkers who met and fell in love in the 1950s, and the turbulence their relationship has endured since then. It’s a bizarre, riveting, and outrageously original story, and it’s 100 percent true. You’ll enjoy it more if you’re surprised by what happens, which you won’t be if you continue reading this review, or any other review or summary of the film, including the one-line plot outline at IMDb.com.
I would love to leave it at that, but it’s impossible to review the film without talking about some of its basic elements. And the fact is, despite knowing some of the story’s more jaw-dropping developments beforehand, I was still riveted and surprised by the movie. Reading a review won’t ruin it for you; you’ll just be slightly less flabbergasted when you see it.
“Crazy Love” does not mince words about its protagonists: These people are not right in the head, and their love for one another defies all reason. But then again, one is compelled to consider, doesn’t all love defy reason? Isn’t its irrationality part of what makes it true love?
(Here’s where you should stop reading and go see the film.)
