    Nice first try of Ruari in mainstream sci-fi movies. He has very good shorts, but with this one I´m waiting for his next movie. Recommended. Has (his) touch. Try Blink TM, 50 percent gray, the Silent city first.

    Weird movie... apparently unconnected stories, with black humor as a permanent background. You may or may not like it. You must have some inclination to nonsense movies, like say, Quentin Dupleix (rubber, wrong, steak, nofilm, worng cops... or so). Reminds me some Wes Anderson techniques sometimes.

    I was expecting something more than... this. Was a good way to make a precuel to Alien, but not a good movie (for me)

    This review reportedly contains spoilers. I can handle the truth.

    Bittersweet movie about two lonely people who meet some days before the end of the world. Couple chemistry didn´t work for me. But in other perspective some scenes of what would people do when they know there are only 20 days left, reminds me some other movies that tried to portrait desperation and disaster and the faces/behavior/values that (could) remain in such case. It woun´t be nice as minutes pass by. And I find depressive near the end.
