The Quiet Earth (1985)

Dir. Geoffrey Murphy

I’d guess Grace would have the best chance of liking this, although I wouldn’t strongly recommend this to her. I didn’t think this was a great pick for the 1001 book.

Like Omega Man/I Am Legend, this is one of those “last men on earth” stories. This time and an accident involving tapping into the eath’s energy is what kills everyone…except one person. Zac (Bruno Lawrence), a New Zealander, is a scientist who was involved in the energy project.

I’m not sure why the writers of 1001 book chose this film. While the film kept my attention, I didn’t think it was interesting enough to warrant a selection. There may have been a subtext to the relationships between Zac, Joanne and Api, and I just never got that.
