I Think We're Alone Now (2018)

 (182)
5.71 h 39 min2018X-Ray15
Del is alone in the world. Literally. After the human race is wiped out, he lives in a small, empty town, methodically going from house to house, collecting batteries and other useful items, and burying the dead. He dines alone, reads, watches movies, and shelves books in the local library he's made his home. He's content in solitude - until he discovers Grace, an interloper on his quiet earth.

Surprisingly good movie
Verified purchase
Dell thinks he's the last human being on earth until he finds Grace. Used to living on his own terms he doesn't want her to stay decides to let her.
But she has a secret she's keeping and it's a big one.

Part The Road and part Stepford, this is a very interesting film, where the quality of the actors carries what could otherwise be boring. But Dinklage and Fanning are excellent.

For those complaining about the low dialogue:
In the kitchen of his erstwhile home, Dell says "They weren't even supposed to be here, it was just supposed to be me. The first thing I saw was the school playground. They were on recess."
Not sure what Grace's 'mom' says, but it sounds like "I had to taunt him."

If you are not demanding a flaming apocalypse within the genre then you may well enjoy this.

Those moaning about the sound!? ..get a grip, I'm around 70% deaf but listened & followed the storyline well enough, with such a small amount of population in the world causing noise pollution you'd hardly need to make yourself heard above the "what noise" !? level 🙄 ..which is clearly recognised in the film, added to by respecting the quiet of the library which is another aspect of the quiet life Peter Dinklage*s character "Del" frequents.

I cannot really argue some of the number reviews here away without giving away too much plot (& that's not on) suffice to say this is a quiet apocalypse with no explanation of what happened (but clearly it was sudden & quick judging by the dessicated state of corpses in Dels small town.
I will say that this film is about keeping one's sanity (order in Dels case) by a continued sense of normalcy within your own ordered bubble, if you don't get that by the end of the film then you have missed the subtleties of the plot from start to end of the film.

Both lead characters are great actors in this low budget film which I enjoyed greatly.

Not quite "NO walking dead" 😉

& Yes the dog was spoken of (referring to another reviewers bilge, ..clearly they had zero attention span in the absence of the explosions & gore that this film doesn't have & didn't need).

Worth a watch but fails to deliver when it could have done so easily. Spoilers.

The movie has some good elements. An ambient soundtrack that is captivating, though don't watch the movie if you are sleepy. The acting is fine, and the casting works for the parts being played.

The problem with this movie is that there is an act missing. The first act should be about Grace and her life in the community with Patrick and how she copes with it. That way, for what would come later, we would be better informed and more certain of her motivations. That act would end with her leaving or escaping the community. The second act is what we are given at the beginning of the movie, with Del's life, his work cleaning up the town, and his role in the movie as human memory, the librarian that catalogues the people who once lived in the town, and keeps it ordered and cultured. His life alone ends with meeting Grace. Third act is them getting to know each other and living together, and that ends with Del's revelation that they are far from alone, when Del meets Patrick and his wife. The final act should be comparing Del's approach to the end of the world with that of Patrick, who has chosen the road of eradicating memory. This needs to be explored more thoroughly. Patrick is portrayed as something sinister, along with his Stepford wife. This doesn't work well, and in the missing first act it would need to be better understood that Patrick offered a way of life that helped people go on with their lives after the end of the world. In the final act of the movie we see the suburban community going about their daily lives as though nothing at all has happened to them. Aside from the problems of retaining an advanced consumer society with such a small community, and then taking at face value what it means is that Patrick's solution is an aberration. A mistake, but an understandable one. He had the ability to make the end of the world go away - pills and cognitive therapy would have been a better choice than experimental surgery, but the point is gotten across. Without a first act that shows his life and how he has coped with life after the end of the world, and the community he has built, we are having to put a kind of comic book villain veneer on him. How can he really have forced any of these people to do this? He is more of a soothsayer or a quack doctor that offered to make the pain of the end of the world go away. Does he then deserve to be shot dead by his adopted daughter? Why did she return with him? He didn't force Dell to go with him, and left an open offer to join them. So, for me, the writing has failed his character. And a chunk of story that would make the film work needed to be written and filmed. Finally, the dog, the murder of Patrick, and the silly drive off into the distance ending don't really fit into this movie. One could have cut them from the movie and used the time to create a first act that would tie this movie together better.

Long, quiet, meh. Very poor sound.
Verified purchase
Peter Dinklage gives a good performance, however this is the sort of film you watch if you want to pretend to yourself or someone else that you have an 'artistic' streak. It's long, slow, meandering. I will not go into plot inconsistencies. But things just don't make sense.

It is not helped that the sound balance seems off. The environmental sounds are loud enough but the dialogue is near inaudible.

A Post-Apocalyptic tale that's more 'The Quiet Earth' than 'I Am Legend'...
Verified purchase
...and that's why it works. The post-apocalyptic genre, one that I've dipped in for my writing, is replete with blood and thunder these days. Actual atmosphere is ignored these days and the mundanity of the situation is nudged aside in favour of people waving guns around and shouting. Which is fine. Sometimes. But what's nice about 'I Think We're Alone Now' is that it eschews that and focuses on an unlikely hero who is quite happy on his own. For this reason, I was reminded of the superb Kiwi 80s classic 'The Quiet Earth' - all routine and quiet madness. I appreciate that this slow examination of the subject will put quite a few viewers off. Yet there's much to enjoy in this hidden gem.

First of all, Peter Dinklage is pretty much brilliant in everything he appears in. In 'I Think We're Alone Now', the first twenty minutes is pure Dinklage and his methodical cataloguing of the world left behind. That will infuriate many, but it is such an effective, low-key way of approaching the subject. His world his disturbed by the appearance of an attractive young woman who desires company much more than he does. What I really loved about this was the very reticent (especially on his part) friendship that grows - it's a very beautifully drawn relationship that doesn't require blood, guts or horizontal tango to create an impression. It does develop into something more substantial, but even this happens organically and appears a natural plot device. There are a few major twists near the end - the closing one appears especially heavy-handed - but for most of its duration, this is a very enjoyable film. Not quite to the level of 'The Quiet Earth', but still a pleasant surprise.

Absolutely brilliant post-apocalyptic sci fi feature
Verified purchase
This is an absolutely brilliant post-apocalyptic sci fi feature, I'm not quite sure if it would have been as good if it had been cast differently and both Peter Dinklage and his female co-star are excellent in their roles. I enjoy books and films on this theme if I am honest, all available styles from horror, comedy, sci fi to diesel punk but this film ranks among the best for me, next to classics like This Silent Earth.

Dinklage does a great job portraying the solitary existence of the "last man" type character, both prior to and subsequent to his encounter with another survivor. The sorts of norms or behaviour that protracted solitude can give rise to are evident in a really great performance and there's little in the way of explanatory discussions and no narration. I like that a lot, the film doesnt spell anything out to the viewer, either about how the featured present came about, the past, the possible future subsequent to the movie's end, there's a lot left up to the viewer.

The soundtrack, music, even the volume and use of sound and silence in this movie are great. Its not the sort of film that is going to win a lot of acclaim maybe (I totally missed this and only found it by accident, I had no idea of the cast either and choose to stream it on the strength of the content alone) but its worth a watch if you like the themes I've mentioned. Liked it a lot and will probably watch it a second or third time around.

Bad sound

Ok, so normally I like subtitles, although I have average hearing. The final 15 minutes seemed just people whispering and mumbling to each other. I could not understand any of the dialogue at the conclusion, and whatever twist there was either totally forgettable or ruined by the mumbly performances. Not sure what I just watched after 100+ minutes.

Very Different
Verified purchase
This is a film about a sole survivior of a catastrophic event (a pandemic - now where did they get that idea from?) where the victims drop dead in the middle of what they are doing (you're probably wishing that of me so I don't finish this review, ha :). The man, named Del (the dingley has just entered my head!) played by Peter Dinklage (ok maybe that should be dinkley) has developed OCD and is going around his home town tidying houses to his hearts content! An OCD man's dream. (If he washes the cars is that an OCD man's wet dream?:) Anyway, he does all that and buries bodies and whatnot just to deal with the trauma. Actually Dinklage does a really good job at acting on his own for the first 13 minutes without saying a word and keeps it interesting. He really is a very intense actor and reminds me of Tom Selleck, both in skill and looks. I didn't like the introduction of a second survivor at first and neither did Del but got used to her and she added an extra dynamic to the film of course. He starts to bond with her but then rejects her after he finds that she is keeping a massive secret from him. I won't continue or I'll spoil it. I'll just say that actually this film was pretty good you just have to be patient with it. If you are looking for lots of zombie fight scenes this one is definitely not for you. I liked it, so why not try it, you might too.
