The premise (from imdb)…
Astronaut Sam Bell has a quintessentially personal encounter toward the end of his three-year stint on the Moon, where he, working alongside his computer, GERTY, sends back to Earth parcels of a resource that has helped diminish our planet’s power problems.
I love this film, ever since I first saw this film (not knowing anything about it) I have been addict to it.
Sam Rockwell gives a top-notch performance, I feel like he is a real Astronaut and GERTY is one of my favourite AI computers ever, because it constantly shows its mood through a series of different smiley faces, and has Kevin Spacey’s voice.
This film pays respect to many older science fiction movies like Alien and 2001: A Space Odyssey, and Silent Running, and it is a great homage. The other great thing about this movie is the special effects. Since the budget was so low this could have been a disaster, but the shots of the Moon Rovers and Harvesters were astonishingly realistic, And it touches on issues such as scientific ethics, corporate greed, human identity, and compassion.
And Clint Mansell’s score. Oh my the score, Its atmospheric and cold, isolated and a has a bit of mystery, I love it 😃
