A grand statement: This is the finest science-fiction film since Blade Runner.
Sam Bell is a lone astronaut nearing the end of a three year stint tending a mining base on the dark side of the moon until an accident brings unexpected company.
Never underestimating the intelligence of the audience, this is thoughtful hard science fiction. Duncan Jones’ directorial debut is a low-budget, one man marvel. Sam Rockwell is riveting in every scene, the unravelling astronaut dealing with loneliness as the days drag him nearer to his return to earth, civilisation and his family.
You can detect the clean design of 2001 in the sterile corridors and impersonal computers; the probing of the human condition from Solaris; and the hope of Silent Running in its ideology. Yes, Moon wears their inspiration on its sleeve, but it is no pastiche or lesser work and is comfortable sitting alongside these greats as the best that science-fiction can offer. Not aliens, not special effects, not adventure, but asking the hardest questions regarding what it means to be human.
