Movie Diary 3/23/2020

The Quiet Earth (Geoff Murphy, 1985). The nicely-turned end-of-the-world movie from New Zealand, with Bruno Lawrence as the apparent Last Man after a puzzling global “Effect.” Hadn’t seen this one in a long time, but it holds up well, with an intelligent approach and only a few contrivances. Crackerjack ending, too. Murphy, who died in 2018, also did Utu and Goodbye Pork Pie. A nice big sci-fi score by John Charles. I really must find my review of this and post it to What a Feeling!

Miracle Mile (Steve De Jarnatt, 1988). A periodic viewing for a Horton household favorite. Makes perfect sense that the end of it all would be scored to Tangerine Dream.
