Trivia

Marks the second film both Marton Csokas and Michael Shannon have worked on. The last one being Kangaroo Jack (2003) from 13 years ago. See more »

Goofs

Regarding the drag race scene, the brake pedal shot indicates that the car had a 2-speed Powerglide transmission as there was no clutch pedal. Also the shift lever was in the Park position making it impossible for the car to move. This would be the only Chevy small block ever hopped up with a "slip and slide Powerglide" transmission. They all had stick shifts, later with close ratios. See more »

Important Story, But the Film Itself Falls Flat
25 November 2016 | by See all my reviews

Unfortunately, I think the movie itself just doesn't work and isn't overly interesting. I can appreciate a slow movie, as long as it builds to something worthwhile. With Loving, it's slow and there's no overarching momentum. There's no fluidity. It just inches along through a collection of scenes. And these scenes end up being incredibly repetitive. Not only do we see the characters doing a lot of the same things they were doing before, but a lot of information is repeated over and over. Scenes happen that give us no new information, or repeat what we learned from an earlier scene. It's not just that some scenes needed to be cut, the entire film needed to be restructured. As it stands right now, there's no connective tissue making this a cohesive film. It's just scene after scene. And yes, there is an endgame, but it's glossed over and trivialized in the scheme of the entirety of the movie. There was just nothing captivating about this movie, nothing really reeling me in...
