Have to share this with you -

We just finished watching one of the most astonishing movies I have ever experienced - low budget movie, to be sure, but nonetheless amazing story, told very well.

It's Jerome Bixby's "The Man From Earth." It's science fiction, but not because special effects or the setting, but because of the subject matter involved.

If you have some time, check it out, I found it on Netflix...think I'm going to watch it again myself...

1. I'm going to watch that one

I like this comment from the wiki article:

"The screenplay for this movie was conceived by Jerome Bixby in the early 1960s and was completed on his death bed in April 1998, making it his final piece of work. The movie gained recognition in part for being widely distributed through Internet peer-to-peer networks and its producer publicly thanked users of these networks for this."

2. A very good movie. Simple, yet...riveting.

It had the intimacy of a stage play.

3. Thanks for the heads up. Actually, about five days ago ...


... I did a search on Netflix for that film because I saw the title on a list of 'movies that take place in one room/location' (I love those type of films) and it said it was unavailable.
I now see that it IS available.

Thanks
