Awesome filmtip!

I just saw one of the best film's I have ever seen! It had no action, nothing more than a few people sitting around in a living room for the entire movie, but it was so mind provoking!

You have to see Jerome Bixby's 2007 The Man from Earth if you get a chance!

The plot is about college history Professor John Oldman who unexpectedly resigns from his teaching position, his startled colleagues invite themselves to his home, pressing him for an explanation. They're shocked to hear his reason for premature retirement: John tells them he must move on because he does not age (and therefore does not die of natural death); he claims he is a Cro-Magnon man who has walked the earth for 14,000 years and must move on to create a new identity before people begin to notice he does not age. Tempers rise and emotions flow as John's fellow professors attempt to poke holes in his story, but it soon becomes clear that his tale is as impossible to disprove as it is to verify. What starts out as a friendly gathering soon builds to an unexpected and shattering climax.

A nice change! I warmly recommend this movie!

Hm låter spännande och en film jag tror jag skulle gilla! :-)
Har du sett K-Pax förresten? En otroligt bra film tycker jag. Handlar också om en man som försöker övertyga sin omgivning att han är från planeten K-pax. Men den är ungefär som en "modern" Gökboet, eftersom den utspelar sig på ett menatlsjukhus. Men som sagt mycket välspelad och jättebra!
