Jupiter Love (2007)
Chromosome X clashes with Chromosome Y in Michael Andre and Nikka Kalashnikova's acidic road movie concerning a female artist's encounter with an unpredictable lone male. As the artist (Kalashnikova) makes her way down the interstate en route to her first solo exhibit, a man (Andre) with a video camera pulls up alongside her and points his lens in her direction. In the thrill of the moment, the artist reacts by sexually taunting the camera happy driver. This response sends the man into a frenzy, and he repeatedly begins ramming her car. Strangely, all the woman can do is laugh at this potentially violent development. As the encounter continues, the sexual psychosis of the male gender becomes increasingly pronounced and the situation quickly spins out of control. ~ Jason Buchanan, Rovi … More

Audience Reviews for Jupiter Love
Jupiter Love, which started out intriguingly enough, very quickly became incredibly difficult to watch. Not because of any disturbing subject matter, but just because it's so dreary, un-relentless, pointless and boring. Anyone familiar with the cult UK TV Series Spaced will remember the character of Brian Topp: a struggling artist, whose pieces were filled with wanky self-worthiness; 'arty' and surreal for the sake of it. Of course in Spaced, it was played as pastiche and was extremely funny, but here Director/Writer/Actor duo Michael Andre and Nikka Kalashnikova are serious in their motivations. According to the statement on the official website, the film is about the "biological evolution of the sexes and the friction from their genetic collision". Which is presumably why the characters are merely know as "X chromosome" and "Y chromosome" (see what they did there?). With so little dialogue and not one, but two, repulsive characters whose reactions make no sense, and with an ineffective contrivance that wraps the film, the only thing that kept me watching was some admittedly stunning shot compositions, which include beautiful landscapes, sunsets, yellow grass etc. I suppose if you managed to find artistic merit in the thematically similar twentynine palms then you might appreciate this.More
