From The Duplass Brother's slasher pic "Baghead" and Gareth Edwards' creature flick "Monsters" to Brit Marling's Sundance one-two-punch of "Another Earth" and "The Sound of My Voice," it's a good time for anyone with an interest in the way that genre can be played with onscreen, and one of the best examples to date is Aaron Katz's...
