The lack of dialog makes this movie unwatchable! Watching people farm is not interesting.

Original. Watchable. Plot leaves many major questions unanswered, and a few minor ones, such as: why does the main character take the time to intricately arrange his hair while the women wear theirs long, loose, and ratty?

This is definitely a slow burn. If you are looking for something that has a lot of flashy lights, explosions and hot people in spandex, don't watch this film. This is a film, not a Hollywood blockbuster. It is slow, sometimes uncomfortable, but compelling and interesting throughout. If you like that sort of thing you might like this. I get bored with high budget action that has me leaving the theater feeling nothing. At least I felt something watching this, a bit of horror mixed with suspense.

Clever film of a dystopian future where the survivalist protagonist has planned for what may well happen when we run out of fossil fools sometime ahead. His world is interrupted by a mother and daughter who seek his help, and forward goes the story. Don't look for special effects or a happy ending in this grim and gritty portrayal, which grabs you and doesn't easily let go.

at least 25% of this movie is no dialogue, including the first 10-15 minutes. slow. boring. i wanted to turn it off several times throughout, but it was on a list of "movies you must see before you die" so i stuck it out.

i wouldn't categorize it as unwatchable, but it's definitely a NO-GO
