The Man from Earth

Happened to watch this movie "Jerome Bixby's Man from Earth" yesterday in office. Initially I was lil doubtful as to whether I should continue watching the movie, but then as the movie went on I found myself deeply involved, sitting at the edge of my chair, waiting for the next dialog. This movie, shot mostly in a single room with 8 characters without any hi-fi visual effects and whatnot, is undoubtedly one of the most intelligent and thought provoking movies I've watched.

The movie leaves you with an experience that cannot be explained to another person; it has to be experienced personally. I never happened to write a post on a movie, but this movie is quite different. I want people to watch this movie and feel it.

You can find more about the movie here, but I strongly recommend not to read it now. Go experience the movie and be a part of Prof. John Oldman's farewell meet.



  1. Thank you for taking the time to not only watch our film, but be compelled to write about it as well. Although we had a very limited budget, we were honored to be able to bring Bixby's final work to the screen.

    I urge you to check out the postings and user comments for The Man From Earth at the IMDb at (and please post your wonderful comments and plug your blog). You can also check out for more information.

    Thanks again and best wishes.
