There was a review earlier here in HDD:

I think technically the disc is excellent but the monochromatic visual style of the movie might not appeal to everyone. I think it's a pretty interesting movie, better than 2.5 stars given in the review.

Nice disc, very difficult to watch in a dark room....hard on the eyes. At least on my eyes

Movie is OK. It has a really intriguing look, but I agree with Bee that the black & white (literally just black and white, no shades of gray at all) visuals are really hard on the eyes. Some of the contrasts are blinding, and there is no shadow detail at all. If something is black, it's pure inky black.
