Other Movies Seen By This Director (0)
A made a special trip into Chicago with my friend Jay to see this movie on the big screen (caught it on the last night it showed too). I liked it a lot then, and I liked it even more after watching on Blu-Ray.
The interaction between the two characters, whose journey is is an emotional transformation for both of them, is great; and the "monsters" really just provide the backdrop and dramatic context for the story of these characters to paint themselves into.
I think this movie succeeds BECAUSE of its tiny budget; given constraints, it works within and beyond them to do some great storytelling that so many big budget films don't manage to pull off these days.
I know Edwards is set to direct the next Godzilla reboot, and I have no doubt he'll do a good job, but I do hope he doesn't get pigeonholed as this SFX sci-fi director. The man can tell a good story no matter the genre.
