The Man from Earth ★★★½

This movie takes place primarily in a single location and is 90% dialogue. Fortunately, the script is compelling and keeps you interested for the length of the film. Like the characters, viewers aren’t sure if the protagonist is telling the truth, playing a joke, or just plain crazy. As the film progresses, the characters make their own opinions and so can we. Most of the ensemble cast is quite good here, but there are a few performances that I found oddly distracting (too theatrical) which ruined the movie's flow at times.

Final Grade: C+
