Now on Netflix: You Should Watch 'Seeking a Friend for the End of the World'
I guess I've been thinking about these kinds of ideas for about ten years. There were those end-of-the world movies in the late 90s that sort of obviously covered it from a different angle. I really liked the idea of telling a story like that from a much more personal, human standpoint.
So I frind suddenly in a new city where I didn't have any friends or family, I didn't know anybody. I was just so desperate for human contact. And that stayed with me for a long time.

I love relationship movies, I'm a romantic, I love movies about love and n falling in love. I wanted to use that epic backdrop but tell the story in an intimate, character-driven way.Sex With Married Woman Corydon

I think that without that, we wouldn't understand anything about living and be able to put things in perspective and understand what's important.
Love, I think, is another sort of heightened, surreal feeling.

I've always sort of found a link between the two, in my life even. I do think they are both heightened and surreal and as painful as death is, I think it's almost equally as beautiful. It's that kind of poignant end to something that helps you appreciate the rest.
When I was thinking of it, in terms of the movie, I was thinking that if there is a metaphor to be seen in here, the end of the world impacts the main character Dodge like a breakup or a divorce.
