“A love story with barely any dialogue (our two leads muster three words between them) doesn’t sound like the kind of film I would normally watch, but 3 Iron, about a transient young man who breaks into empty homes to partake of the vacationing residents' lives for a few days, is a wonderful achievement, with as much savageness as there is sentiment.

Such jolting, cleverly executed scenes are worthy of your attention alone, but there’s also plenty of heartbreak here, most notably when our young lead and his silent partner break in to an elderly man’s home as his lifeless body decorates the kitchen floor with his head wound. Why our lead chooses to fix broken appliances and wash their dirty laundry while they enjoy their vacations is baffling but wonderfully quirky, and the movie zips by at a beautifully realized pace despite drifting a little too far into weirdness during the final third - certainly demands a watch though.” DW
