I liked Moon a lot, despite it not being:
a) A biopic of Keith Moon
b) A dramatisation of Who Built The Moon
c) A documentary about the history of the Moonies
d) An avant-garde display of buttocks across two hours narrated by Moon Unit Zappa
(Delete as appropriate)
Instead its ninety minutes of Sam Rockwell talking to himself and the rehabilitation of science fiction computers. But perhaps its a sign of age when I look at big idea sci-fi (which Moon certainly is) and then start to wonder about the business planning of the faceless corporation involved. No spoilers, but the unusual situation outlined in Moon does not necessarily seem to be the most cost effective way of running the business involved. Great for rustling up intriguing think-piece moral conundrums, but potentially lousy when it comes to making money. And the moral problem at the heart of Moon? Well that should have been picked up by their auditors.
But hey, when was there ever a sci-fi film with an accountant as a hero?
