THE MAN FROM EARTH: HOLOCENE REVIEWED
“The Man from Earth: Holocene” was meant to be a pilot for a Man from Earth TV series. For those that don’t know, Holocene is the follow-up to the now 10 year old Man from Earth film. The film deals with the idea that the Man from Earth might be 14,000 years old. But, he’s also dying. What follows is old bitter men and college students trying to bridge the truth behind the titular character’s origins.
Given the TV origins of the project, it makes sense that the film doesn’t end in a satisfying way. Could there be an effort to tie things up? Sure, but why not wait another 10 years? I can’t say that I didn’t like the film. It works like a semi-religious movie take on the Vandal Savage story. That being said, it’s not a film that is essential viewing. If any of this sounds interesting, then you should check it out.
Everyone else can stick with that Star Trek Original Series episode about Methuselah. Remember that one? It’s another Sci-Fi tale about an old man in space.
