Anyone else watched this?

http://www.imdb.com/title/tt1470827/

It's billed as a sci-fi/horror type movie - just look at the poster - and I went in expecting that but got something completely different. Sort of like how LiT was branded as a comedy.

It is set against a sci-fi backdrop (aliens on earth) but that's about it. It's a really well done movie about two people stuck together, unhappy with their current situations, lots of conversation, slow scenes, great music. Very much like LiT, Sunrise, etc.

One of my favorite movies of this decade. Definitely worth a watch. The director, Gareth Edwards', next movie was the new Godzilla though which was pretty awful, although there were a few scenes where you could see his style. Hopefully he can get away from that sort of Hollywood blockbuster and back to something more his speed sometime (he's set to do the next Godzilla as well though apparently :( ).
