Netflix Deep Cuts: William Eubank’s “Love” – A Lesson in DIY Cinema

With thousands of films across every conceivable genre available to you at any given moment, the incomprehensible depth of Netflix can sometimes be a bit overwhelming.  That’s why Perspective Daily offers “Netflix Deep Cuts,” spotlighting those hidden gems you might have missed.  This week, we invite you to queue “Love” – the 2011 existential sci-fi debut from director William Eubank.  A fascinatingly dichotomous example of budget-conscious filmmaking and cinematographic beauty, “Love” approaches the lost-in-space genre (all hats off to star Gunner Wright, carrying the film almost entirely on his own) with something unique: hope.  Scored by Angels & Airwaves (and produced by Angels frontman Tom DeLonge), “Love” offers a cinematic meditation on the importance of human interaction in the face of technological failure.
