MOON (2008) [feature]

UK, USA (MIFF 2009 , International Panorama)
Director: Duncan Jones

The directorial debut of Duncan Jones (son of David Bowie), this claustrophobic sci-fi feature stars Sam Rockwell and the voice of Kevin Spacey.

Heralding a fresh renaissance in indie sci-fi flicks, Moon eschews big budget CGI effects for slow-burn combustible tension, telling the story of a man on a solo mission on the moon who begins to suffer hallucinations, as he succumbs to the isolation and monotony of his assignment.

An intimate character portrayal in a starkly impersonal outer space setting, Moon is a claustrophobic drama that harkens back to classic sci-fi of 2001: A Space Odyssey.

“What begins as a psychological study turns into something far more mysterious… a tour-de-force that echoes the work of Jeremy Irons in David Cronenberg's Dead Ringers.” - Screen International
