Surprisingly brilliant - The Quiet Earth review by DJ

Spoiler Alert
29/01/2021

I only chose this film out of a vague interest in Antipodean cinema, and when it got allocated i was a little disappointed. However, it really is a remarkably intelligent, well performed movie, with some interesting ideas and great lines. Bruno Lawrence - i think it is the eyes - is especially good, and it's with him that we spend the first 45 minutes or so. I would recommend not reading anything too much about the movie. Suffice it to say, if you like cerebral sci-fi, this will appeal.
