    From Berlin With Love: How Nick Hornby’s ‘A Long Way Down,’ Starring Aaron Paul and Imogen Poots, Rejects the Conventions of Valentine’s Day

    Valentine’s Day is always a mixed proposition: a celebration for those in love or doom’s day for the lonely singletons desperate for companionship. At least, that’s what most romance films want us to believe — not to mention the lists. All sorts of lists: the top 10 romance films, the top 50 romance...
