The Man from Earth – An impromptu goodbye party for Professor John Oldman becomes a mysterious interrogation after the retiring scholar reveals to his colleagues he never ages and has walked the earth for 14,000 years.
An interesting movie that starts out pretty slow and never gets fast. It’s very b-movie-ish in it’s acting, but there’s an interesting dialog underneath it all. The description tells you it’s about a guy that’s a 14,000 year old caveman, but the parts that were most interesting were about all the people he’s met and been throughout all those years. There’s a few too many “right place, right time” scenarios, but it really gets you thinking about what you believe in or not. Not the best of movies, but recommended for the thought provoking point of views.
