100 Word Review – Moon

I should never have put off watching this one. Kept company by computer system GERTY (a very effective Spacey), Sam (Rockwell) nears his return home after three years isolated on the moon, but a series of hallucinations lead to an extremely troubling final two weeks.

The inspiration from 70’s/80’s sci-fi is strong, giving the lunar station setting a sterile yet haunting feel. A tremendous amount is achieved on a small budget, yet this would be for nought were it not for Rockwell’s performance. Raising many interesting, existential questions, Moon is best viewed going in blind. It will be worth it.
