Love (12A)


The shadow of Duncan Jones's Moon hangs over this low-budget space oddity.

Gunner Wright stars, alone, as an astronaut whose craft has lost contact with Earth and become stranded in deep space.

The ache of boredom and loneliness gradually give way to a fugue of existential despair, which writer-director William Eubank cleverly conveys in flashbacks to other eras (the American civil war) and lifetimes. Kubrick and Caspar David Friedrich are also notable influences.
