    Mattei's script was written in 1998, and the absence of any sense of the impact of 9/11 on New Yorkers is palpable. While watching "Love," I was thinking what great potential there was - still is - for a Manhattan "La Ronde" set in the days following 9/11, when strangers sought comfort from each other in spontaneous sexual alliances. show more

    The idea, I suppose, is that love connects us all, even when it goes wrong. Fortunately, even love doesn't usually go quite so badly as this movie does. show more

    An exercise in cynicism every bit as ugly as the shabby digital photography and muddy sound. show more

    It is a great character study that ranks with Paul Thomas Anderson's epic "Magnolia." show more

    The characters who cross paths here in the hard shadows of late-'90s New York City are meant to convey loneliness, bitterness, neediness, loss, and bad karma. Mostly, they convey bad Sundance. show more

    Guaranteed-to-bum-you-out conclusion. show more

    The film ultimately offers nothing more than people in an urban jungle needing other people to survive. Kane's character observes that "We’re all connected by love" -- and that sounds familiar, too. show more

    Michael Atkinson Village Voice

    Mattei is tiresomely grave and long-winded, as if circularity itself indicated profundity. show more
