Tagline: The last place you'd ever expect to find yourself.
Synopsis: Astronaut Sam Bell has a quintessentially personal encounter toward the end of his three-year stint on the Moon, where he, working alongside his computer, GERTY, sends back to Earth parcels of a resource that has helped diminish our planet’s power problems.
Round-up: J. Hoberman of The Village Voice embodies the bittersweet mood of most reviews of "Moon": Impressively pulled together on a modest budget, Moon has a strong lead and a valid phil... osophical premise but, despite Bell's fissured psyche, the drama is inert." In his lukewarm review of the film, The Hollywood Reporter's Duane Byrge notes, "Cloned smartly from trusted story forms, "Moon" converges a frontier saga with an escape mechanism." Not able to hold back on references to director Duncan Jones' father David Bowie, Entertainment Weekly's Owen Gleiberman admires Jones' direction, "Jones truly puts you on the moon; he does a technically imaginative job befitting the son of the man who fell to earth." Film Journal International's Chris Barsanti also praises Jones, "Jones' ability to craft a thoughtful and emotive piece of science fiction out of little more than a clever concept, a single set, and some not-too-convincing special effects is nothing to be ignored." Karina Longworth's Spout blog review of the film takes the film most seriously, regarding it "as a potential sci-fi game changer."
