DUNCAN ZOWIE & SAM GO TO THE MOON

By: 04.10.09  •  21 Comments

Moon, directed by a guy whose name I sh*t you not is “Duncan Zowie Heywood Jones” and starring Sam Rockwell, is the ever elusive sci-fi indie film, about a three-year, one-man mission to the moon to mine Helium-3, which has become Earth’s primary source of energy.  Naturally that one man is Sam Rockwell, looking like a crazy homeless person again.  His only company is a computer who’s basically like HAL, but with smiley face emoticons.  Strangely, the emoticons actually make it seem more empathetic.  Something to remember next time you have to dump someone via text message.  “It’s not working out :-(   It’s not you, it’s me.  Looks like I have some issues to work through :-S I’ll really miss 3===> (|) ”
