Movie Night: Save The Green Planet

I’m at a loss for words of my own to describe Save The Green Planet (IMDb page), so I’ll have to crib from others.

Amazon’s description:

A sensitive, blue collar sad sack hopped up on conspiracy theories and sci-fi is convinced that aliens have infiltrated human society and are planning to destroy the planet at the next lunar eclipse. He sets out to kidnap his boss to torture him until he confesses to his alien identity and stops the invasion. Of course, it’s hard to confess to something that’s just a delusion in a sick man’s mind.

miffy, from Alberta Canada remarked:

The poster is entirely misleading, this is the creepiest movie I have seen in a loooooong time. That doesn’t mean that the movie is bad, far from it, just don’t expect a lighthearted B-movie style romp. I won’t reveal any of the plot, but damn is it good.

And, from Celluloid Czar:

The tone swerves wildly from whacked-out comedy to brutal violence to teeth-on-edge suspense, swinging from one to the other as rapidly and disorientingly as possible. […] It’s a visionary film, if an undeniably strange one.

This movie is truly different. It’s not always easy to watch, but I imagine we might later learn that it has inspired a new generation of filmmakers.
