So much potential and such a messy film.

It's a shame that "The Death And Life Of John F. Donovan" isn't as good as it should be. A messy, mismatched, and overly long film.

In this drama, years after the death of a TV star, a young man reminisces the written correspondence he shared with the famous actor, as well as the impact those letters had on both their lives.

As much as writer/director Xavier Dolan's latest effort isn't really confusing, it kind of feels like it is. After you're done watching "The Death And Life Of John F. Donovan" you feel as if you've spent hours and hours watching this film and it goes nowhere. The film does feature some good performances from the all-star cast but in the end the story is what is at fault here. The film does have a powerful moment which features the song "Hanging By A Moment" by Lifehouse; you wish "The Death And Life Of John F. Donavon" was that great throughout. It could've been a better drama but Dolan's film is just a disappointment.

Simply wonderful!

True to form, Xavier Dolan has given us something original and profound. This is a beautiful story about time, progress and boundary-crossing forms of friendship and love. The film has its minor flaws but the acting is great from everyone involved (even Kit Harrington, usually rather one-note in my opinion, gives a wonderfully nuanced and haunting performance), an awesome soundtrack, equal parts style and substance, and exquisite cinematography. The critic reviews are shockingly unfair and not at all representative of the great quality that this piece of art embodies.

Well done

I had been wanted to watch this and then read the reviews and thought I wouldn't bother. I only ended up putting this movie on as I'd seen everything else and couldn't sleep. Did I watch the same movie as the people who hated it? I understand each to their own but for me the acting was great and the story would have resonated with so many different people on many levels. A rare script to have so many great actors in it so they obviously saw the wow factor.
