I've been thinking a lot about what you said. And I need to find Sam, just to see her from a distance to see if she's okay.
Your Mom loves you, still does and always will. Maybe love is all chemical, maybe it's also "We'll keep the species going." But I think whoever or whatever planned it that way, must have known what love felt like.
That's a good enough reason.

A sweet exploration of the questions of love in the scientifically aware post-modern era.
I saw Dopamine at Sundance and I loved it. It was the first movie, to my knowlege that delved into how all humans are chemically programmed from birth, and how awareness of this can take the magic out of life and of love. The question is: Can we overcome our programming. Should we even try? The pitfall for this kind of topic, is usually the story gets bogged down with details and science, but that is not the case here. The characters are all extremely believable. You care for them and they make you laugh as well. Mark Decena did a wonderful job of creating a very good cast to deal with the script and the production value is very good. I was really blown away by the use of the High Definition video format because it looked beautiful. There are no explosions, no huge crane shots, just a tight, unique story that poses new questions about a classic topic, love. Ryan
