Intriguing Science Fiction Film
16 February 2017 | by See all my reviews

An intriguing science fiction film, The Man Who Though Life remains little known in the United States. However, viewers who enjoy films like The One I Love or Being John Malkovich should like this film as well.

Max Holst, a neurologist, is summoned to the hospital because a patient has asked for him. Holst finds the patient in his room, smoking a cigar. This is not hospital procedure, and Holst is curious how the patient smuggled the tobacco into his cell. Shortly after the patient escapes, somehow managing to get a key to his room. What is going on? As the title suggests, this patient, by thinking hard enough about an object, can summon it into existence. This man wants something from the doctor and will not take no for an answer.

Shot in stark black and white, The Man Who Thought Life seems a fairly low budget film, at least by American standards. What the film has to offer is something that costs very little, an unpredictable plot. The viewer tilts on shifting ground with the film's plot. The one complaint is that the ending seems too easy. That aside, The Man Who Thought Life should be sought out by curious viewers.
