When the movie opens, a man and a woman appear to be the only two people left on earth (in a setting that looks like Texas). Was it a global apocalypse? The Rapture? Nightmares that mimic reality seem to suggest there is more than meets the eye. This is not a typical post-apocalypse movie, and it is not a horror/survivor story either. It is original in many ways, but we have seen some of it before, too.
Writer, director, and actor Marshall Mills has created a movie with striking images, ominous atmosphere, and characters that seem like people we have seen in these kinds of situations. When we are shown things that are familiar and unfamiliar at the same time, we try to find some kind of reference with which to make sense of it as a whole. Marshall's screen play gives us precious few hints to help us; mostly he keeps us in the confused, dreamlike/nightmare-like world of the two protagonists.
Because it is like a dream at times, uncanny things can be accepted at face value, since they almost make sense, while other things conform to normalcy. The characters (and audience) have no choice but to keep on. This makes for a challenging experience where things are not what they seem and we are continually wondering who these people are, how they got in this situation, what will happen, and what does it all mean?

One of those "dreamy" films - meaning the autofocus and color regulator probably didn't work. The washed out sepia tone of the film lost its "innovative glimmer" after about 11 seconds. The sound quality makes it seem like they were using tin cans instead of microphones...
As for the 'script' - I'm not sure, but I'd say it was written by hipsters who live in Texas and have French film posters on their walls... but were being funded by the Texas Farm Board, or Texas DoT or something, since they're trying to pay homage to Truffault and Fellini but have to show Texas farmland to please their patrons. Toss in some Biblical references (most likely gained from half-reading a Wikipedia page on Revelations) - and you have 7 Angels in Eden. Oh - and dream scenes that seem like "hey, this would be SOOOO freakin' cool, it'll blow MINDS, dude" ideas they couldn't fit into the "storyline" but they wanted in anyhow.
Happily when we watched this, we didn't have a drinking game where you take a swig when you see a "WTF?!?" moment, or we'd all be dead of liver failure. It's one of those films that make you think "wow, I'd actually rather be at the office than watching this".

I give credit to the creators for trying. I also wish them well in their new endeavors. Film-making is not one of them. Enough said.Published on September 24, 2013 by PR GUY
I cannot possibly fathom how movies like this ever make it to distribution, this has to be some form of money laundering for fake movie sales. Read morePublished on August 5, 2012 by Les Gallia
