Phoenix (2015) Review: Mired love

Phoenix is not a plot driven film but it is driven by the estranged emotions that are mired by deception and yearn for true love. It is very intriguing and has subtle sense of suspense on how both the characters unfold. Their guilt, their redemption. “Phoenix” ends with a haunting performance of “Speak Low,” the Kurt Weill/Ogden Nash by Nelly that will chill us to the bone. Phoenix may seems like ‘A Separation’ in its structure of emotional labyrinth and it does asks it audience to vicariously decide the moral and emotional consequences of both the leads.
