Moon Review

Screen Shot 2015-09-07 at 8.27.01 PM   Due to the lack of Craven film’s on Netflix, I must postpone my Craven tribute. So, since I just reviewed a film starring David Bowie, why not talk about his wonderful son, Duncan Jones. This will probably be a really short review since I don’t want to give anything away, so if you plan on watching this film don’t read any synopsis or don’t watch any trailers because this is a really simple yet surprising film. Sam Rockwell, why isn’t this guy a superstar, consistently delivering great performances from Matchstick Men to The Way Way Back. And in Moon we get to witness probably his best performance up to date. Showcasing a range of emotions with no one but himself to play off, Rockwell delivers another impressive performance. Then comes Duncan Jones and what he was able to bring to this film, great dialogue and a really touching story that evokes distinct emotions from the viewer, sure it sort of feels like 2001: A Space Odyssey or Do Androids Dream of Electric Sheep? at times, but the direction is handled so well it feels clever and original. In conclusion, to not give away anything, watch Jones’s Moon because it’s awesome, an epic thriller that takes place in space, an emotional “human” drama, ranking at a 92 out of 100.
