Audience Reviews for Love
This directorial debut of filmmaker William Eubank was a little bit different from what I expected. I wasn't aware of the story, which portrays the personal-psychological effects of isolation and loneliness. It was interesting scratch on the surface of the possibilities what could happen when an astronaut becomes stranded in space ... what is the importance of human connection and love in those moments?
This movie tried to touch a little bit of everything but mostly emphasized fragility of mankind's existence (explored through a dying Earth-apocalyptic doomsday scenario) inspired by the cautions of Carl Sagan in Pale Blue Dot. For the creators - the importance of memories and stories is huge and they actually are the humanity's legacy.
When you think, all these questions were a part of the movie which tried to go deep as possible, but somehow didn't manage it right. The actual space-station set was built in William Eubank's parents' backyard. According to Tom DeLonge, the production was going to rent the space station from the movie Apollo 13 but instead opted to construct it from salvaged materials for budget reasons. I could not see a problem with it (check the photo of the "space station").
If you like movies which are clear, sharp and the time linear, after watching this work of art you will be frustrated like never before. Everyone else in the audience could engage in a challenge of understanding what is what ... and may lead to a desire for repeat viewings... I didn't enjoy it s much as some of my RT, but I am glad I didn't miss it.
Indie sci-fi film about a lone astronaut on the ISS, who is left completely alone with no contacts after something happens on Earth (it is slightly ambiguous, but it seems likely all out war took place) and he has to deal with the effects of absolute solitude. Pretty decent film, and fairly impressive for a movie made on a half of a million dollar budget. The ISS set in the movie was built from spare junk in the writer/director's driveway! I enjoyed this film, and was impressed by what had been done on such a limited budget, and a very small cast (one guy for the bulk of the movie, and a few people he imagines who have very little screen-time or dialogue). When I see an independent film like this, it gives me hope about cinema.
