'Moon' by Duncan Jones

21 September 2009

Visiting the magnificent Regent Cinema in Lyme Regis is like stepping back in time so it was appropriate that, although we were there to see a science fiction film, it had an old-fashioned feel to it. ‘Moon’ is a low-budget British film, written and directed by Duncan Jones which recalls some classic science fiction movies of the sixties and seventies. Sam Rockwell stars, almost single-handedly, as an astronaut coming to the end of a three-year solitary stint on a mining station on the moon. The plot, pace, suspense and mystery are beautifully handled to create an unusual, intelligent and enthralling human drama with little action and hardly any special effects.
