    Ah right, yeah. I saw that and thought it might just be him seeing a hallucination or a flashback to him as a young guy training to be an astronaut or something.

    Ah. Thought it might be something like that. Without knowing what role this Sam plays in the film, I think I'm safe.

    Moon is going to be on at the Edinburgh International Film Festival on the 20th and 23rd June if any Scottish EGers are interested.

    I think the UK-wide release isn't until mid July so if anyone does go, let the rest of us know if its any good. :)

    I can't bloody wait to see this.

    Sam Rockwell is supposed to be stunning and it's drawing comparisons with the all-time greats in sci-fi. Great review here from aicn, which is relatively spoiler-free:

    I saw this on Wednesday night at the BFI Southbank. The BFI membership paid off! I went with 2 friends, we were kinda drunk when the film started but sobered up pretty fast.

    This film is amazing!

    I don't want to talk about the story much. Suffice to say, it's set in the future, on the Moon. Sam Rockwell plays Sam Bell. He works for Lunar Industries, alone, on the far side of the moon, harvesting Helium 3. It's a 3 year contract and when the film begins he's only 2 weeks from the end of his contract. Until there's an accident and he discovers another version of himself. Is something dodgy going on, or has he lost his mind after 3 years talking to a computer???

    Sam Rockwell turns in a fantastic duel performance. The film is atmospheric, brisk and plays its hand quote early. It's very uncomplicated, makes perfect sense, but still asks some far reaching questions about identity and isolation. You'll be talking about/thinking about it for a long while after.

    Special mention should also go to Clint Mansell's score. It's quality! You actually hear it in the trailer. For once, the music used in a trailer is FROM THE FILM. Very cool.

    The screening was followed by a Q&A with the Director and Producer. We didn't ask anything, but some of the questions asked were decent. Turns out the Directors next film, Mute, will be set in the same universe and will feature Sam Rockwell's character in some capacity.

    I think this goes on General Release next Friday. Check it out!

    It's a great film. Really took me by surprise. Directors first film too, and the budget was only $5 million. That's crazy, it never looks like it.

    I really want to see this but it's got one of those retarded indie releases and so is only being 'shown in select theatres' over here.

    They are going to make me pirate it :(

    I'm trying to decide whether to wait until mid August when it's on locally at Croydon's art cinema the Clocktower or nip into London to the Curzon Soho (if it hasn't burnt down) next weekend.

    I really don't want to pirate it, partly out of support for intelligent sci-fi films and partly because space films where the sense of isolation is a major part of the film are always better on the bigger scale of the cinema screen.

    I doubt it will be showing at the mainstream cinemas in August, though the independents might have it often they're a month behind the big cinemas.

    Aren't you in Chicago right now? It's playing at Loews Pipers Alley 4, apparently.

    And seeing as I personally am not driving two hours to go see a movie let's hope they get the DVD out or put it on demand before an hq download becomes available.

    I think it's officially released on Friday, so you won't find many places showing it yet.

    Got tickets for this Sunday myself.

    Cubby didn't know how to turn off sigs!

    Just got back from watching it. Very nice, Sam Rockwell does a fantastic job. Really good, old-fashioned, space claustrophobia movie. It also does well in going against expectations.
    And that's all I really want to say as I don't want to ruin it, spoiler tags or no. Just go see it.

    DEAR GEORGE LUCAS: Do you see how good space effects can be without a single piece of shitty CGI? Do you? Models FTW.

    Fuck, it looks as if it won't be coming to Sweden.

    If you can read this you really need to fiddle with your forum settings.

    Fun related fact, Donnie Darko never got a cinema release in Sweden, The Core did.

    ;_;
