The only thing to fear is people

San Francisco. Population: 186

Twelve years after a devastating plague has emptied the world of people, two San Francisco filmmakers traverse the nearly deserted city with a camera and a microphone. In a series of encounters and interviews with a ragtag handful of fellow survivors, they explore the harsh realities, the day-to-day challenges and the tough - sometimes shocking - choices facing everyday people struggling to build a community on a large and lonely planet.

3.0 out of 5 stars Like, Wow Man! Pass a Cigarette March 19, 2008
Format:DVD
This "documentary" has its good and insightful points, but ultimately it grows old halfway through. After the first 20 minutes "Ever Since The World Ended" feels more like a 60's hippie commune than a group of end of the world survivors. I imagine if you live in San Francisco this film will seem very real, but for those of us outside this culture it comes off as a group of 21st century hippies playing pretend.

Format:DVD|Verified Purchase
OK, I'll admit up front that I stopped watching this movie before it concluded. I stopped right about the point where the young woman announced she had decided she wanted to "parent" a child by herself and had publicly approached some male visitor to assist in her impregnation. That happened right after a lovely older woman wearing nail polish and lots of jewelry -- holding court in her perfectly-appointed hilltop home where she hosted communal "book club" type gatherings -- announced sternly that there would be "no guns at the table." (This sent a young woman who sported a sidearm scurrying off apologetically to remove her weapon before taking tea.)

To imagine that any of these scenarios would play out in any form after a plague has reduced the San Francisco area to a population of 186 is frankly absurd. To imagine that only those who are artists and free-thinkers would survive is absurd. Where are the hooligans? Where are the high school dropouts? Where are the minorities? (Was that chic Aleut-looking guy the only non-white who made it?) To imagine that a room-full of 20-somethings would listen raptly, jaws open, as the attire of French courtesans is explained to them by a volunteer teacher -- that, too, is absurd.

What were these people eating? Canned food left over at the Piggly Wiggly after 12 years? Who was cutting their perfect lawns? Where were they getting water? (There was a stab made at explaining that, but not a convincing one.) Where were the dogs and cats? The rotting cars? The rust, the dirt, the blight? We were given to understand that there was only one "not nice" guy alive, and he was basically only made that way by some weird type of PTSD from being a "care-giver" during the plague.

I realize science fiction does have the obvious fictional component. But it really does need to have some semblance of reality to work.

Save your money. This movie is just plain stupid.

1.0 out of 5 stars Just not a good movie at all June 3, 2008
Format:DVD
WARNING!!! THERE ARE SPOILERS BELOW!!!!

SPOILERS WITHIN

Sorry, but this movie is just not that great. I know it's a low budget film, but that doesn't excuse the poor plot, unbelievable scenarios, and massive plot holes. the basic plot: a plague wipes out the world's population, leaving 186 people left in San Francisco. one issue: we hear so much about this plague, yet learn nothing about it. we aren't told a single bit about it's origin, initial outbreak, symptoms, how it spread across the world, or how it's spread (it's assumed it's not airborne, given the lack of face masks, but that's all we get). we don't know why some people were apparently immune (and why the majority of those people are white, fairly educated people. I counted 2 minorities in this whole film) or whether it affected the environment (there are mentions of wild dogs, and we see birds and fish). overall, we get zero information about this plague, other than the fact that it's deadly. even if this movie was less about a killer plague and more about the people that survive it, this info could have been worked in somehow, espcially since we get several interviews w/ a doctor

also lacking is info about the current situation. we hear over and over how there's only 186 people left in S.F. but get no info about the outside world. we don't learn how the rest of the country and world survive, what sort of political structure is left, or even if the crisis is really over (we're just left to assume the plague magically disappeared from the face of the Earth). also, everything is very, very clean. it's a bit unbelievable to see the streets completely devoid of trash, bodies, burned cars, scavengers, or other signs of an apocalypse.

1.0 out of 5 stars This movie is awful. July 22, 2011
Format:DVD
It's poorly filmed, poorly acted and full of pseudo-intellectual garbage.

The movie is filmed as a documentary, and as a documentary it's just plain bad. The whole thing is put together haphazardly. There's at least five separate storylines, none of which are very interesting, and are cut together in a weird way. There's no focus to the movie whatsoever. There's no beginning, middle or ending. It looks and feels like something a high school kid would put together for film class. The "post apocalyptic" scenes consist of being either out in the forest, or closeups of people in their nice clean house with the lights off and a candle burning.

The actors are obviously ad-libbing for most of the movie. You can see the internal dialog reflected in their eyes. They're not acting, they're sitting there talking. They're not present in the movie at all. Every character is clean, well groomed and coiffed.

Apparently, the only people to survive in San Francisco are artists, teachers, film makers, sculptors, hippies and one emotionally disturbed ex-fireman. The society they've created for themselves has no purpose and no direction. Everyone seems to be only looking out for themselves, and they don't even do that very well. How they've lived on their own for 12 years after the world ended is mind boggling.

The only redeeming quality in this movie is the engineer played by Adam Savage. His character seems to be the only one taking the end of the world seriously. He talks about what it is like and what is needed to survive in the world they currently live in. His character has plans for the future and realizes that eventually everyone will have to move out of the city and get back to living off the land and making simple tools in order to live. Most of the deleted scenes on the DVD are him talking about life in a post-apocalyptic world, and are just about the only thing worth watching on the entire DVD.
