Monsters - One of the best films that I've seen in a long time. And what's really amazing about it, is that it's an indie film which was made on a tiny budget by a crew of two, the director doing the camera work, and another guy doing the sound, along with two actors playing the central characters. The director then added all the digital effects later on his home computer. The result is a film that puts most Hollywood offerings to shame.
The journey that the characters take in the film, was actually taken by the guys making the film. They just stopped when they found suitable locations, and then roped in the locals and used them as supporting actors. The result is a film with the kind of integrity that you just won't find in mainstream movies.
It's a love story wrapped up in a road movie, which is then bundled up inside of a monster movie, with an environmentalist subtext. If that doesn't sound like your kind of thing, don't be put off, because this film will confound your expectations. I really can't recommend this one highly enough.
Damn, I want to watch it again now!
