Movies that you should have seen in the cinema and you haven't: Episode II

A masterpiece completely forgotten by the industry and the critics. Nevertheless, not by the cinema lovers. This one of the examples of how a film can be the source of inspiration (or plagiarism?) for some blockbusters. We give the credit to this great feature: Moon.

Astronaut Sam Bell (Sam Rockwell) is experiencing a personal crisis as he nears the end of a three year solitary mission in the Moon. His only company is a robot (Kevin Spacey) that assists him in technology maintenance. As days go by and his return to the Earth gets closer, Sam realizes there are so many things that lie beneath his mission. Why is he there all alone? 

Fantastic film. That is all you could say once you watch it. Furthermore the story starts to be more compelling and the more you think: " hey, I saw this already in Oblivion (2013) with Tom Cruise". This is when you see how bad Hollywood can be. It is a money-profit machine looking to suck-up the creativity of the independent cinema. Sadly, Moon has been one of its victims. 

Nevertheless this is an opportunity for you to watch a masterpiece with a daunting Sam Rockwell and a incredible music soundtrack by Clint Mansell (Requiem for a dream). You won't regret it!



  1. Fun Fact: The director Duncan Jones is also David Bowie's son! :)
