Moon

A friend recommended and lent me the DVD for Moon starring Sam Rockwell. I’m not a big sci-fi fan, but I did get pulled into this film, which is part drama/part mind game.  Moon is the story of a man who’s nearing the end of his three year contract working on a moon station for a Korean energy corporation, called Sarang. (I’m not sure how this works out but Sarang means love in Korean. There’s no love lost between the corporation and the worker.)
Sam Bell, Rockwell’s character, has a robot companion, who watches and helps him. The robot’s not quite a HAL, nor an R2D2. Kevin Spacey provides the robot’s eerie voice quite effectively.

As you’d expect, things get very troubled and complex as the story develops. Whom to trust becomes a major concern as does survival. I can’t say more as it would spoil the film.

I did get drawn in, but was left with some questions. We never find out why this man would ever take this job. It’s rather odd that we don’t learn that.
