Back to the Moon

Well, actually watching Duncan Jones’ ‘Moon’ on cable. Fine screenplay from Nathan Parker, amazing acting from Sam Rockwell and himselves, as well as a fine performance by Kevin Spacey present in voice only.

I’ll excuse the lack of diversity just for this time since Sam Rockwell was the only actor on camera, except for Dominique McElligott as his earthbound wife, Tess. That role requires Ms. McElligott to be beautiful, which is not a stretch.

Have you seen any smart and provocative films lately? How come they can spend a gazillion on making stuff explode but have so much trouble finding a good screenwriter? I have a short list, a very short list, of movies I like.
Three Brothers
Fast, Cheap and Out of Control
American Splendor
Moon
