The Man From Earth (1997, imdb)
Written by Jerome Bixby
Directed by Richard Shenkman
The observant reader will notice “Written by…” unusually being above “Directed by…” in the paragraph preceding this and the same reader will naturally (being so attentive and clever and beautifully well informed in matters of taste in blogs) wonder as to the reason of this. Well, let me tell you that it is no mistake and this is simply one of those rare movies where the writer is the star.
The Man From Earth is a heady movie of dialogue taking place entirely in one small location. Needless to say if you don’t like people talking a lot you should not watch this movie. Enjoy!
