The end of the world has fascinated humans inexplicably for thousands of years. What is it about the topic that is so enticing? Films dealing with the apocalypse tend to be big budget action films where the crisis is conveniently avoided just at the right moment. Very few filmmakers (or studios backing a film) have the guts to go all out and make an end of the world movie actually about the end of the world. There won’t always be Bruce Willis to save the day. “Seeking a Friend for the End of the World” isn’t afraid to take risks along the way to keep itself apart from the average rescuing the world flick.

In fact, the entire apocalyptic backdrop isn’t the main conflict of the film. Sure, it’s what causes all of the action, but the film is about regret, love, »
