24/01/13 The Man From Earth (2007)

Excellent low budget film about a college lecturer who, during his leaving do, tells his colleagues that he's 14,000 years old. What a fucking Tory poster boy, working that far beyond retirement, eh?

Anyway, his workmates are doubtful, y'know, being sane academic types, but slowly start to question their own assumptions as his story seems more and more plausible. There is a twist, of sorts, as the man claims to be a fairly significant figure from history...

Low budget, well acted, intelligent, great script and funny. There's a final moments reveal which seems a little tacked-on, but that's a small niggle in an otherwise excellent film.
10/10 (Yeah, why not.)
