Duncan Jones' Moon is an award-winning low budget sci-fi thriller about Sam Bell, a solitary employee at a lunar station. Alone with only a computer and a robot assistant named GERTY and with no communication with Earth, Sam is desperate to get home, especially as he only has three weeks left in his three year contract.
In isolation and with only himself and his plants to talk to, Sam knows that he is beginning to hallucinate. But when he has an accident and is knocked-out two weeks before his departure, he wakes back at the station infirmary and assumes that GERTY has helped him. However, when he returns to the accident spot he sees something that makes him question his own sanity. Could it be that he's not alone on the planet? Sam soon discovers that the barren world he's called home for three years is not quite what he thought it was!

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.

Moon Angus Spawton-Rice
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.
