    ★★★★

    It's not easy to talk about this movie. While it has its technical problems from time to time, there are times of emotional impact that far exceed anything a film has made me feel. Very shocking and disturbing, but it had to be exactly like that in order to achieve what it did.

    Like a car crash that you can't look away from. Everything that happens in the movie is so amazingly awful. Every twist and turn is worse than the next and just when you say "it can't get any worse", that's when it gets worse. It's also mind-boggling how confident everyone working on the movie was, from the on-screen actors to the crew and the director, everyone was doing their best to make a good movie. And it failed in such a spectacular way. I haven't stopped thinking about it, please see it if you haven't already.

    The Man from Earth: Holocene

    The thing that made "The Man from Earth" so popular and loved despite its lack of budget and general flaws is that its main focus was the "game" between the lovable characters. A no-budget sci-fi "12 Angry Men" with some philosophy sprinkled on top. Religion only became a part of it during the third act and it was handled as the big "twist". It was a charming, quiet, funny and mysterious little movie.

    What this sequel does, is take everything…

    When I first heard that there was going to be a Blade Runner sequel, this is exactly what I feared it would be.
