Goofs

When John returns from the woods, he opens the driver side door of his truck. The window changes from open in the shot from outside the truck, to closed in the shot from inside. Then, when he drives off, the windows is open again. This was possibly done intentionally to avoid reflections of the camera crew, but it is still a continuity error. See more »

Dont expect it to be the same
16 January 2018 | by alfarinrmSee all my reviews

The man from earth is my favorite movie ever made. It is amazing. I love it for the narrative style yet mind blowing content. This movie made my sci-fi loving imagination explode, in the end I gave it a standing ovation while being in my room in front of a PC.

And they made a sequel. And it has nothing to do with the first one, dont expect it to. Yes it is about the same fictional persona, yet the movie style is completely different. Now its a teenage adventure, and, to be honest, I wouldnt even watch it to the end if it wasnt out of respect to the first masterpiece.

So give it a shot, but dont expect it to be on the same level. Its different.. and flat.
