Sometimes I am like a moth to a flame when I see a poster covered with
those awards all over them. "Winner, best international film, Siberia
film festival!" I just can't resist checking them out. So, that leads
me to watching Love… What a mess a movie. Someday I will learn my
lesson. I didn't know anything about this movie but from the trailer it
looked promising, even if it did seem to be a rip off of Moon. The
premise is pretty simple. An astronaut is orbiting the earth on a space
station. There is an undisclosed incident on earth and now the
astronaut is trapped on the space station with no way to get home.
Sounds interesting right? Nope. The movie bounces between the astronaut
and another story involving a soldier during the Civil War. The soldier
has been sent on a mission to investigate a mysterious object.
Apparently the soldier left a diary that the astronaut has with him on
the ship. The astronaut becomes enthralled with the story and with a
bunch of old Polaroids that he finds. Eventually due to loneliness and
boredom the astronaut starts having crazy hallucinations.
The movie for me was 90 minutes that felt like an eternity. It is a movie that doesn't really go anywhere. It is really just a prolonged music video for the band Angels & Airwaves who did the soundtrack. I would have preferred if they had just done a movie about the Civil War story. I think it would have been a much more interesting film. Love starts off fairly strong and dissolves into a mess of visuals and abstracts that made me understand why I had never heard of this movie. It is just not very good. Listen to the first line in the trailer below and I think you will get an idea of the type of movie that you are in for; "When all that is left is a simple shadow, what will we want it to say?" I want it to say "Pretentious drivel." If you are a fan of Angels & Airwaves then you may get some joy out of watching this but, I recommend everyone else go watch Moon instead. It is a much better film. Love gets 1 guy from me.
After losing contact with Earth, Astronaut Lee Miller becomes stranded in orbit alone aboard the International Space Station. As time passes and life support systems dwindle, Lee battles to maintain his sanity - and simply stay alive. His world is a claustrophobic and lonely existence, until he makes a strange discovery aboard the ship.
