Duncan Jones’ first crack at the silver screen is a resounding home run. This film which features Sam Rockwell, (Matchstick Men, Confessions of a Dangerous Mind) as an Eco-friendly moon miner in the not so distant future, is a sleek and well executed homage to sci-fi past. It is subtly layered and filled with laughs as well as somber realizations. The plethora of tangible acting and beautiful modern CG/miniature models is accented by a wonderful haunting score done by none other than Clint Mansell, (The Fountain, Requiem for a Dream). I was lucky enough to catch the screening at the Castro Theater here in San Francisco, where Mr. Jones talked briefly on some of the challenges of making the picture. With a budget of approximately five-million and a shooting schedule of thirty-something days, “Moon” is a great example of what’s to come from Duncan Jones. Only in one scene is audio garbled and somewhat indistinct but that’s not nearly enough to take you out of the story. This movie will keep you going until the end. Duncan admittedly claimed to have played with the audience’s pre-conceived notions of characters and story lines of sci-fi fans and noobs alike. This movie is an “A-” and well worth the wait. Coming to select cities in June 09′.
