    It is Canadian prodigy Xavier Dolan’s third feature, after I KILLED MY MOTHER (2009, 7/10) and HEARTBEATS (2010, 5/10), the first one he doesn’t hog a leading role for himself.

    The story reveals it to be an epic romantic in its run time, and the performances are ballsy as well as being very vulnerable, ending in the only way it possibly could. A very emotionally fulfilling film.

    Laurence Anyways is like a big, ornate, overstuffed pillow of a movie. It’s attractive and comfortable, even if there’s just too much of it.

    At nearly three hours, it's by turns an extraordinary and exhausting work.

    At nearly three hours, it’s entirely too long, needlessly padded out with an intrusive interview-framing device.
