I saw 'Another Earth' and I recommend it. Amazing scene with a guy playing a saw - how many movies have that?! You can listen to the music from this scene on the composer's website http://www.scottmunsonmusic.com/news/music-in-film-another-earth-soundtrack

That was an incredible performance. The movie is quite good too, in really unexpected ways.
