Sam Rockwell is Sam Bell, an employee of Lunar Industries over 100 years from now. Poverty on Earth no longer exists thanks to the Moon, and its ample deposits of helium3, which is used in fusion reactors. Sam maintains the equipment and gathers the helium3 from the giant harvesters scouring the surface of the moon. He then sends the helium3 home via capsule. There is no real-time communication with Earth, however, only recorded messages, due to a faulty satellite. Bell is feeling horribly lonely. He has been on the Moon for 3 years and his contract expires in 2 weeks. All he wants is to see his wife and child again. Paranoia and strange hallucinations are starting to set in.
All this sets in motion a story that twists and turns, and weaves information skillfully. Threads and clues are left for the viewers, who must question everything they see on screen. Sam too will question reality, question his surroundings, his existance, and his purpose. Sometimes stirring, sometimes mindblowing, Moon is never boring.Read more ›
The German philosopher Martin Heidegger wrote that in an age of technology, where everything is treated as a resource, we ourselves become just another means to an end. We think of technology as our servant, but humanity itself becomes another means to an end, a cog in the globalized technological machine.
Director Duncan Jones has created a profound yet simple and small science fiction film that thematizes questions regarding the impact of technology on human life, how it affects human relations to each other, even what it means to be human. The film feels like a return to some of the most intriguing science fiction of the seventies and the eighties, films like Soylent Green, Silent Running, ...Read more ›
Moon is a mystery but it is also a science fiction film. Sam Bell, played by Sam Rockwell, works alone in a largely automated mining camp. His only companion--shades of 2001: A Space Odyssey--is a talking computer named GERTY and voiced by Kevin Spacey. It's a fairly simple situation, as far as sci-fi movies go--and things become more complicated only after Sam suffers an accident at the mine.
I won't tell you anything more of the story. I won't diminish your reward.
Moon is carefully constructed, the work of a patient filmmaker. Jones (son of David Bowie and formerly known as Zowie Bowie) demonstrates a maturity in his story telling that is sorely lacking in the works of many more experienced film makers. Moon is quiet, it builds slowly and with confidence, and it is imminently worth your time.
I am excited to have discovered an intriguing new voice in film. With Moon, that voice is little more than an insistent and important whisper, so far, but judging by the trailer for his next film, Source Code, Jones is quite willing and able to make himself heard.

To sum it up: the plot doesn't go anywhere and you can't relate to the (only) character. The ending is also a big let down.Published 6 days ago by Philippe Morneau
It was an excellent movie on all levels. There were some scientific stuff going on that was not brought out. Clones are not as good as the originals. Read more
