5.0 out of 5 stars The last man alive is a one man band January 8, 2009
Format:DVD
If you were looking for a punk rock musical version of The Quiet Earth, then you have found it. A nuclear war has wiped out the world, and only one single human being remains alive. That man is Tomata Du Plenty, and he is about to get weird for you.

In the vein of films such as Phantom of the Paradise and The Rocky Horror Picture Show, "Population 1" is an eclectic mix of music, imagery and bizarre I-took-way-too-much-acid state of mind. This is the kind of movie that was passed from punk rock kid to punk rock kid during the 80's, on an old VHS copy with no label and barely visible from too many viewings.

5.0 out of 5 stars a classic 80s experience and visually very bold October 10, 2012
Format:DVD|Verified Purchase
May take many watches to see all the meanings. High quality well done independent film at the head of its time. The actors are characters that's for sure. Worth watching to see all the influences and the musicians trying to make it big. The world lost out but it's not too late! Pay your respects to music history.
