MOON by Duncan Jones


moon - embitterment level - disappointment level

Sam Bell (Sam Rockwell) is the sole employee of Lunar Industrie’s Sarang lunar station, supervising the production of helium-3 which is the key element to supply Earth with cheap and clean energy. His only company is the AI of the station, GERTY (voiced by Kevin Spacey). It’s already near the end of Sam’s three year-contract when he encounters himself after an accident with the moon rover. Both Sams believe the other one must be a clone, but this is not the only mystery on the station.

Moon’s story is like one of those of the Golden Age of Science Fiction, an extrapolation of the future based on reality, classic hard science fiction such as you find it today in magazines like Analog Science Fiction & Fact (and which is not even closely related to flicks like Transformers which pose as SF today). Moon’s themes are none less than society and corporate behavior and the value of human life in the near future. One not to miss!
