Editorial Reviews

A man regains consciousness at the bottom of a cave, with no concept of how he arrived there, nor any idea who the dead man is at his side. Only one thing is certain - he has to escape the menacing creature that s pursuing him. His journey back to the surface takes him through a cemetery - like world that s been abandoned by a mysterious organization called Eden Log.

Ages ago when I was in high school I wrote an extremely abstruse short story for an English class that was riddled with references that no one could decipher except for myself. I thought it was oh-so-clever, a mini Finnegan's Wake. When after reciting it I was presented with a room of blank stares I proudly went about explaining the symbolism. No one cared. I realized then that if one wants to create both a successful and weird/obscure/dissonant story, at least include a layer that is accessible to the casual reader. Eden Log doesn't make such an attempt.

If an interminably long-feeling movie centered around an amnesiac man groping around in near darkness in an environment filled with broken plastic junk, tubes-n-wires, and columns of tree roots whilst pursued by cheesy looking humanoid monsters sounds appealing then this movie is for you!

The movie is about a not-too-distant world where energy is harvested from an enormous tree. The "power plant" (haha - cute) named Eden Log is a secret subterranean facility where columns of tree root are exposed for study, experimentation, and work associated with energy generation. Eden Log is populated by human subjects, mutants, technical staff, and a militaristic guard. Humans are intravenously given sap from this special tree which does (2) things: 1) creates a symbiotic relationship between plant and human wherein both species develop a biological understanding of the other and 2) humans are subsequently infected during sap exposure and mutated into dumb humanoid monsters that are then boxed and suspended in the tree canopy. The tree generates energy while digesting the subjects. Things would be dandy except that there is a revolt among the Eden Log population forcing an intervention by the militaristic guard.

After reading reviews of Eden Log, and after seeing the movie myself, I agree that you either love it or hate it. There is little room for a middle of the road reaction to this one. As with so many others, it's all about what you expect and appreciate from movies that break the mold of formula and predictability.

I tend to be more in love with the movie for its uniqueness above all else. In a world where everything has already been done, making the newest of movies a clichéd rehash of something seen before, this movie goes all out to avoid those pitfalls, becoming something refreshingly new. Of course, the inescapable and limited themes (man vs. man, man vs. nature, man vs. himself, etc.) are there, but that's where the familiarities end.

I must stress, however, that creating something new these days also involves a large amount of courage to create what can largely be disliked. The director and writer of this movie had some serious courage, for sure. Eden Log is incoherent much of the time, defying most attempts to make any sense of the plot through the better part of its running time. However, any astute viewer will quickly realize and appreciate the fact that this movie is confusing by intention rather than by chance or failure. Of course, I'm not suggesting that a movie can be good merely because it is confusing. There is, I think, in this movie, order and meaning to be discovered, with enough patience and thought, within all the chaos and confusion. Yes, from the very beginning, the viewer is offered a most unique puzzle to be solved.

The viewer is introduced to the main character in the pulsing bright light of an otherwise pitch-black cavern. As for where this dark place is, no one can possibly know at this point.

Have you ever wanted to see a movie that is all about a mud-caked man creeping around in dark rooms full of tubes and metal fans, listening to other people talk about nothing?

Well, too bad. It exists anyway. "Eden Log" can be added to the long, long list of sci-fi movies that might have been interesting if they were only fifteen minutes long, and didn't have endless, ghastly scenes of the protagonist slobbing around in near-darkness, raping women and not having any personality. There's clearly meant to be some kind of metaphorical or symbolic quality to the "story," but it's so torturously unpleasant to watch that it's impossible to care what it is.

A man with amnesia wakes in an underground cavern, with a corpse next to him. At least, that is what I think happens. It's so dark and the camerawork so choppy, with only the occasional strobe light, that it is nearly impossible to see what's going on. There's water, and mud, and he crawls out of it... very slowly... and walks... very slowly... and some some things with electronics in the dark that I can't make out because THEY'RE IN THE DARK. This goes on for several minutes. Then he climbs into something that I can't see because it's still dark, and bangs on a metal door.

He continues wandering around some underground facility, encountering some maps covered in fishing nets, holograms talking in corporate cliches about "citizenship" and "Eden Log," and a crazy man being slowly absorbed by massive plants. There are also mutants roaming through the place, infected by a mysterious pathogen.
