God of Love

Winner of the 83rd Academy Award for Live Action Short Film, God of Love is the story of a lounge-singing darts champion Raymond who finds his prayers are answered (literally) when he receives a mysterious package of passion inducing darts. The catch is that the one woman he loves - Kelly, a drummer in his band - is already in love with Ray's best friend Fozzie, the guitarist in the band.

An overlooked masterpiece.
Verified purchase
This will be in my list of best movies ever. I am truly amazed there are not thousands of five * reviews. It has everything I love: beauty, a poetic quirkiness, a believable and sympathetic lead, an unpredictable ending. I laughed and cried. I cannot imagine anyone being disappointed with this gem.

As a baseline, my other favorites include Night on Earth, Brother from Another Planet, Brother Where Art Thou, Being John Malkovich, Down By Law, Adaptation, Eternal Sunshine of the Spotless Mind.

Aaaah Love

I don't necessarily agree with the stated premise of the movie, but I love everything that happens during the film. Love is unpredictable and so is this film. A lot of good acting and emotion is packed into a short time frame. The characters are great and so is the music. To top it off, Mr Bethany is one of the most interesting people I've ever seen. Think I'll go watch it again, I'll bet there is some little quirk that I missed the first time around,

Hilarious, touching and beautiful production.

Just loved this so much ~ parts are pants-wettingly funny but overall I found it more touching. The retro aesthetics and very nice production values were the icing on the cake. WANT MORE!
