I Think We’re Alone Now
I Think We’re Alone Now: Directed by Reed Morano. With Peter Dinklage, Elle Fanning, Charlotte Gainsbourg, Paul Giamatti. The apocalypse proves a blessing in disguise for one lucky recluse — until a second survivor arrives with the threat of companionship.
I’m a fan of both Dinklage and Fanning, so it’s no wonder that I enjoyed this post-apocalyptic story so much. This is the first piece of content that I’ve seen from Reed Morano, but it looks like she’s been doing some pretty well received work on ‘Billions’ and “Handmaiden’s Tale”. The story is one of those “last man on earth” stories which always happen to involved multiple people left on the earth instead of just one guy, but in this case there’s a good reason behind all the misdirection and I’m satisfied with the ending. Just once though, I’d like to see one of these types of films that actually do feature the last guy standing, instead of the last guy standing, his new girlfriend, her high school buddies, the guy from across the street, and a whole cast of bad guys.
