Love is complicated stuff. You can keep your Love Actuallysand Sleepless in Seattles—these movies don’t sugarcoat relationships and explore them in raw and fantastical ways. Here are 15 we’re into, in no particular order.
“What could be better than a black comedy romance between a suicidal teen and a feisty 79-year-old widow? NOTHING. It’s one of the best stories ever. I never feel like killing myself after seeing this movie!” – Super Cooper
What is Purgatory, exactly? Writer/director Goran Dukic imagines it as a slightly shittier version of real life, except no one can smile and your car seat might have a black hole in it. Such is the setting for an unlikely story in which suicide victims seek love in the interim afterlife.

And there’s at least one obvious Americanism toLet Me In, which is the title itself. "Me" is more personal than "the Right One," a little more demanding and a lot less arbitrary. The title of the 2008 Swedish film—the Tomas Alfredson-directed Let the Right One In, a tender prepubescent romantic vampire story unlike much else before it—focused on key elements to the John Ajvide Lindqvist book, mainly the relationship between the two main characters (a meek boy, and an irregular non-girl vampire). Otherwise Låt den rätte kommain stayed loyal enough to leave bare footprints in the snow.
The Matt Reeves-directed film Let Me In of 2010 just had to distinguish itself, suggesting, for me anyway, a sense of that old “Let Us Americans Show You How It’s Done” bit. Plus there was the usual exchange rate caution that this could be another dumbed-down version of something already done right once if you could but get over your allergies to subtitles. In other words, the American film made me nervous, having liked the European one so much, and I don’t speak ka-ching the way Hollywood execs do. I feared the modern-day Wicker Man with Nicolas Cage that scandalized the original 1973 Scot version with Christopher Lee and Edward Woodward, that strong sick feeling of pointlessness. To my happy surprise though, Let Me In was more akin to how close The Ring got to capturing the non sequitur creepiness of Ringu. Did it have to be touched up for American audiences? Probably not, but then again, why not?
