Sam Bell (Sam Rockwell) lives a lonely life - three long years on a moon base mining a precious gas but things start to unravel for the astronaut at an alarming rate! Who is he? Why is he there? And is he really alone?
While being a bit slow to take off, once it gets going Moon is well in there with classic sci-fi movies.
For a direction début, Duncan Jones shows excellent talent and storytelling. Music is originally composed by Clint Mansell, who brought an eerie tone to the film in a similar way he did to Requiem for a Dream. Sam Rockwell fully succeeds in showing his versatility as an actor, I completely forgot he had ever done comedy.
An original storyline is what makes Moon stand out from other low-budget sci-fi. This is just the success Jones needs to be recognised as up and coming directional talent. Definitely worth a watch.

Duncan Jones, who won the 2010 BAFTA for Most Promising Newcomer, writes and directs this critically-acclaimed space isolation drama starring Sam Rockwell as Sam Bell, a worker for Lunar Industries who is nearing the end of a three-year contract to mine the moon's surface for the precious gas Helium 3, the solution to Earth's energy crisis. As he approaches his return to Earth, Sam reflects on the lessons he has learned during his prolonged isolation and looks forward to his reunion with his wife and young daughter. But a fortnight before his departure he starts seeing and hearing strange things that lead him to suspect that his employers intend to replace him in a far more sinister way than he imagined. Kevin Spacey provides the voice for Sam's only companion, a small robot called Gerty.
