"The End of Love" is an exceptionally intimate, human-scaled picture. It's also quite a special piece of work.

There is plenty of evidence that Webber has something significant to say, and the gifts with which to express himself. Once he's ready to commit fully to his own vision, there's no end to what he might accomplish.

Shot with tiny digital cameras to minimize the sense of intrusion, The End Of Love sometimes feels like a home movie, but that's also the source of its strength.

Though the loss that underlies Mark's emotional state feels like a scripted conceit, The End of Love excels at conveying the moment-to-moment frustrations and exhilarations of being a dad.

Not sure if The End of Love's Mark Webber got that callback from Paul Thomas Anderson, but the Mark Webber who made The End of Love deserves to be getting a few.

Despite its flaws, however, the film is fueled by poignancy and an emotional rawness that's mostly understated and only rarely forced.

Mr. Webber, a skilled actor, has not devised a narrative with sufficient momentum or tension to sustain much interest.

There are some lovely and moving things here, but over the long haul it's more like watching an hour and a half of someone's weekend trip to Knott's Berry Farm.

It's the kind of indie in which shrugging naturalism means nobody has a distinctive personality or energy, and the claustrophobic sense of young Industry workers collarbone-deep into their own navels is hard to shake.

Webber appears to be making an audition tape with his second directorial effort, using screen time to display a range of moods and dramatic encounters that could go on to secure future jobs for the actor.

Feels like the navel-gazing West Coast answer to the more caustic East Coast sensibility of the recent Daddy Longlegs.

Too often toddles over the fine line between cute and cloying before finding its footing in the final reel.
