What a film! Quite possibly my favorite sci-fi film ever, Sam Rockwell just nails this performance, he is so unbelievable in everything he does. He plays Sam, an astronaut that monitors & repairs a mining station on the moon; the moon has a substantial supply of helium 3 which earth uses to power 70 percent of the planet. That’s a big job for just one guy. Sam is injured while out checking a mining vehicle, he crashes and gets knocked out, it is because of the accident that we discover Sam is a clone and now there is another Sam, the one who saved him. The new Sam has a completely different demeanor and is pretty aggressive, which is cool to see the difference amongst the clones, and once again amazing work by Sam Rockwell for pulling this off so beautifully. The debate over who is the clone who is the original is great, the dialogue is strong enough to pull this off and it takes this part of the story to the next level by having these clones question their own existence. In a way Moon is a sort of collective of a lot of the films we have seen this semester. It deals with real vs. synthetic memory, it also has a science gone wrong element, it has been visual elements of Blade Runner and 2001, all the while having the dominant main character isolated in space like Gravity. Moon does a great job of drawing from substantial sci-fi influence while remaining a solid story of its own. Moon is a very impressive film and an excellent way to finish this semester.
