quietearth [Celluloid 02.20.09] post apocalyptic movie news



Not just 9 days ago we reported on a new post apocalyptic flick about the last man going mad called Straw Man and as I've been in touch with one of the producers, she kindly gave us the heads up some stills were available. I'm already digging this considering it looks more like an arthouse interpretation of the end of the world.

Straw Man is the harrowing tale of one man, a lone soul in an empty world. To combat the loneliness of isolation he surrounds himself with people made out of straw, hand-crafted and moulded from faded memories of friends and family. They offer little in the way of company yet they hold insanity at bay. This Lone Man is a contradiction, his rambling thoughts battling against his need for structure and routine. In his quest for normality he spends each day teaching pupils, reading to them from the classics as they stare back at him with blank, featureless faces. But when the line between reality and fantasy is blurred by madness his ordered life is sent into a downward spiral.

Why do the straw people stare at him with blind judgement?
What are the children trying to tell him?
Who is the beautiful woman... ...and does she offer salvation?


Stills after the break.
