The Afterman: The Afterman (1985) is a Belgian film, directed by Rob Van Eyck, about a man (Jacques Verbist) who emerges from his destroyed bunker into a new post-apocalyptic world. The film, first made available on DVD after twenty-five years, is perhaps singularly notable, even in its obscurity, for its complete lack of dialogue. The Afterman also mixes arthouse cinema aesthetics with its accompanying intellectual themes and good, old-fashioned sensational cinema (e.g. sex and violence). The usual end result of a film mixing the two styles is that it finds no real audience and polarizes fans and/or critics in either camp.
