In the tradition of such psychologically-charged sci-fi outings as The Next One (1982) and K-PAX (2001) comes the cerebral science fiction opus The Man From Earth (2007). The story concerns Professor John Oldman, a scientist who summons a group of associates to a cabin one freezing night, and strikes them with a fantastic revelation: he is not a traditional human, but a 14,000 year-old immortal, who has survived centuries of evolution from the Cro-Magnon Era to the present. In the hours to follow, Professor Oldman's earth-shaking assertion about himself challenges the men on spiritual, scientific and historical levels. But the most incredible is yet to come - an even more astonishing truth in which the men's discussions culminate.

k FOR THE RECORD, this movie isn't about "evolution from the cro-magnon era to the present". Nathan Southern obviously had no idea what he was talking about when he wrote the editorial review. We are living IN the cro-magnon era. We ARE cro-magnons. So this story is about a fictional cro-magnon who happened to survive from waaaay back when cro-magnons had been around for about 4,000 years (14,000 years ago) to the present, and watched his species (or our species - same thing) grow from tribes to city states to countries etc. This movie is a fascinating account of his long life. If you're big into special effects and don't like using your imagination, go away. Also for the record I am a math major. I'm not a geologist. Everyone should know their basic science. Nathan Southern is a god awful writer. He should retake high school.

This film / video, though a human creation, is well done and closer to the real world, day to day experiences, than the currently expressed dogma of any religion, however old they may be. There is, a Force for Life, in the Universe, but it has nothing to do with Man. We are a very small part of the process of this evolution. We are currently experimenting with ways to cause our extinction, and destroy, in a few hundred years, what Nature has made possible, over billions of orbits of this ( particular ) planet. How then does anyone ( think ? ), we are special ? It takes a deranged mind to believe there is a God, in the image of a man, anywhere in the Cosmos.

Written by acclaimed sci-fi author Jerome Bixby (who apparently finished this on his death bed), who also wrote "Mirror Mirror" for Star Trek, "It's A Good Life" for the Twilight Zone & the film Fantastic Voyage, "The Man From Earth" is an thoughtful & entertaining character study not like any movie I have seen in decades. What it lacks in locations and special effects MORE than makes up in tension and smart dialouge that I haven't seen on film since "12 Angry Men". If you are fan of Star Trek, Twilight Zone or Sci-Fi in general, you should BUY THIS MOVIE. You won't be disapointed.
