a film by Duncan Jones

It’s been a while since I saw an intelligent sci-fi movie. So I was pleasantly surprised by Moon, with its (deliberate?) 1970s-era visual effects, Solaris quotes and general mood of Space Oddity. With a lot of interesting twists. For instance: unlike HAL 9000, GERTY obeys Asimov’s Three Laws. But also (like so many of us nowadays) he is able to express himself via emoticons — something that most probably would be lost on a 70s viewer . One of the most touching scenes of Moon is the one where GERTY is crying .
