Technically proficient, good-looking - but what's the point?

An enterprising, depressive sci-fi movie in the meditative mode of La Jetée, 2001: A Space Odyssey and Solaris.

A fine example of budget filmmaking with this beautifully shot and thought provoking Sci-Fi tale of loss, isolation and loneliness ...

Wildly ambitious, Eubank's sci-fi often hits the mark.

At about the two-thirds mark, the film starts to wander off on its own, seemingly without really caring if the audience is following along or not.

Eubank is not strong on literal explanations - or on the science underpinning his story. He is an impressionist, alert to the waves of nostalgia that can be unleashed by a single visual metaphor.

Eubank may well have a future as a cinematographer, or in the special effects business. But a filmmaker he ain't.

Impressionistic, DIY sci-fi suffers from a lack of cohesion but is a finely crafted debut from a gifted director.

Eubank has a practised control of the frame, and an understanding of form that makes this micro-budget feature punch well above its weight.

Somehow - for only $500,000, using a set he built in his parents' yard - Eubank has fashioned an avant-garde Moon, harnessing greater ambition and technical flair than most mega-budget hype magnets.

Audience Reviews for Love

Love is part film, part music video and part poem. To review it as just a movie wouldn't really be doing it justice. Visually it's stunning, from futuristic spaceship to dilapidated prison cell, each shot is beautifully realised. The film is essentially about loneliness and abandonment but it embraces the melancholy through the poetic script, hypnotic music (courtesy of Angels & Airwaves) and the idea that when everything is taken away from you, the creative mind is all that you have to keep you alive. Humans are a social animal, we need interactive, we need each other, we need love. Probably one of the most over looked masterpieces of the last decade.

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.
