The Man from Earth
Scott Hardie: “It ruled.”
A professor tells his colleagues that he is a caveman who has survived to the present day. They question his story, and in the process debate biology, history, philosophy, and religion.
That's the whole movie. What a great concept, if the ideas and performances can back it up, and they do. The late Star Trek writer Jerome Bixby made this script his life's work, and it's packed with his considered thoughts on a wide variety of subjects. It's also packed with Star Trek actors, which might be how it wound up in my Netflix queue in the first place. It's very thought-provoking, although possibly insulting depending on your religious beliefs. It's the best movie I've seen in some time now.
