Michael Glover Smith’s third film is a three-part anthology film built upon sharply observed parallels between multiple couples at crucial turning points in their relationships. In the tense and sexy “The Brothers Karamazov,” a Russian-lit major calls a pickup artist’s bluff by challenging him to a game of Strip Literary Trivia. “Cats and Dogs” is a Rogers Park stroll with a gay couple who seem made for each other–but can they bridge the gulf between cat-people and dog-people? In the metafictional “The End Is the Beginning,” an enraged woman throws her unfaithful mate out of the apartment, then transfers her affections to an unexpected replacement.
