Reed Morano’s I Think We’re Alone Now opens with a wonderful, calming sequence in which Peter Dinklage’s Del meticulously cleans a house. He strips it of resources and takes a family photo for his records. A little later, we learn he also wraps the nearly mummified bodies he finds and buries them outside town. It’s a gentle process, telling us a lot about this character while also offering the dark vicarious fantasy many share of being the last person on earth.
