Love Lies Bleeding Is A Great Sophomore Feature From Rose Glass

Her First Movie Also Scored In The 90s On Rotten Tomatoes

Love Lies Bleeding may be Stewart’s first collaboration with A24, but director Glass comes to the film with an A24 feature already under her belt. This was 2019’s psychological horror film Saint Maud, which follows a pious nurse who develops an obsession with saving her ailing patient’s soul. Saint Maud was also Glass’s debut feature film, making Love Lies Bleeding her sophomore feature.

Saint Maud
features a leading cast of Morfydd Clark, Caoilfhionn Dunne, and Jennifer Ehle.

In Saint Maud, Glass laid the groundwork for what is looking to be a flourishing career in the realm of deeply psychological thriller. In the debut feature, Glass also exhibited her propensity for showing a highly idiosyncratic and twisted form of sensuality between two people of disparate backgrounds. As the Love Lies Bleeding trailer suggests, Glass’s sophomore effort follows some similar themes, making it an interesting addition to her oeuvre.

Saint Maud also created a reception divide. While it scored a Certified Fresh 92% on Rotten Tomatoes, the audience score was a comparatively lower 67%. As Love Lies Bleeding hits theaters on Friday, it will be interesting to see how its audience reception tracks (or doesn’t) with the pattern set by the Glass debut.

While Stewart has starred in some great movies over the years, she’s also starred in a few which have not been met with favorable reviews. For example, Benedict Andrews’ political thriller Seberg, where Stewart stars as the main character, received poor ratings and has a lowly 35%. Same with 2015’s Anesthesia, which received an even worse 27% rating.
