  1. Love is a mournful thriller about the myth of assimilation and the way nurture - or, more precisely, the lack of it - fashions identity and character. Elegantly directed by Vladan Nikolic using multiple viewpoints and an elliptical, nonlinear narrative, the movie presents a New World disrupted by old grievances and a neglected community living by its own rules.
  2. The film is an atmospheric and complex thriller that, while not quite living up to its thematic ambitions, more than sustains interest along the way.

    The finale - a shootout in a church - seems inspired by Hong Kong filmmakers like John Woo and Ringo Lam.
  4. 75
    Yugoslavian-born writer-producer-director-editor Vladan Nikolic weaves together the intersecting stories of lost souls who bring their international miseries to New York in this cool, cynical thriller.

    A multi-perspectival film vastly superior to "Crash," Vladan Nikolic's dynamic thriller Love reinvigorates a stale cinematic format and imparts a compelling message all without a single head-on collision.

    The action is compelling, the film good looking, the acting first rate and the circumstances -- people from neglected nations in an alienating if not hostile urban landscape -- is moving.

    Just watched the dvd. I would say very good but given that this film was made for Nothing, it's outstanding.

    A really interesting and different film but not for everyone.

    Perhaps the worst film I have seen in a long time. Bad enough to prompt me to write my first "review". The acting is horrible, thin and dull. Perhaps the worst film I have seen in a long time. Bad enough to prompt me to write my first "review". The acting is horrible, thin and dull. The score is abysmal. The photography amateurish and often from illogical angles. I initially turned the film off about 30 minutes in. I then gave it a second chance. It's often best to go with first instincts, especially so in this case. A must miss. Full Review »
