"Love" - "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."

I searched and didn't find a thread on this (doesn't mean there isn't one). Has anyone else seen it?

Very interesting movie, some will love it, many will hate it. This is a well done, low budget, scifi film more in the vein of "2001" than "Aliens", etc. (in other words, it makes you think!).

I went into to "Love" blind, having not read anything about it nor seen any previews. At first I was a little confused but little by little it pulled me in. By the time it was over I was fascinated.

Check it out if you like 'something a little different'.

Only in the sense that the astronaut is all alone, in this case completely alone, no robots, etc. (takes place on the space station vice the moon).

A sci-fi movie called "Love"? They might as well have titled it "Don't Ever Watch This Movie."

You'll understand if you watch it but I doubt you'd enjoy it Josh.

The title has something to do with AVA [Angels&Airwaves] who composed and performs the music on this film.

Chances are very good that I was drinking when I posted the above.

Actually, being sober and trying to follow Primer is also a waste.
