Yes. I really liked it too.

Willem is fantastic, and it's good film making in whole. Some gorgeous shots in this.

Since Osiris had issues finding the trailer, here it is in HD:

Good to see Dafoe in anything.
The guy never disappoints.

Saw this film today. Really good role for Dafoe. Just love his work. Anyway...I really enjoyed the film. Very sad as well. Just the way it had to go. I'd react the same way if I did what his character to do. So amazing and so fragile. Too valuable to be. Man...seeing it was magical. Great cinematography when they got Dafoe out there alone. I can't wait to own this on BD at some point. I'd like to see the director work w/ Dafoe again. Used him well. Well..maybe I just more Dafoe, I dunno. But this film was a nice change of pace.

I liked it and saw it on HDNET movies the early premiere but if you saw the poster you might think it is a non-stop action movie.

Dafoe is awesome

Surprised at the ending though

Spoiler:
I thought maybe after he saw the Tasmanian Tiger he would just let it go and keep the mystery alive that it might be extinct instead of killing it.

I assume so the corporations could stop sending people to look for the Tiger.

Saw it today (on demand )
Really liked it, a thought provoking film. Nice performance by Dafoe (he never turns in a bad one though)

In regards to the ending
Spoiler:
the company wanted parts of tiger after Martin had killed it: blood, the heart, etc. They mentioned that in the beginning of the movie that the tiger had some special toxin that the corporation wanted to get a hold of. Instead, Martin killed the Tiger and burned all the remains so the corporation wouldn't get a hold of them.

This was a very good film. Dafoe with not a wasted breath. Beautiful cinematography and superbly directed. 4/5 stars.

Rented this from Redbox on DVD today, will purchase the BD very soon.
