OUT OF THE WORLD Moon, starring Sam Rockwell, is a trippy take on a space movie.
EW's GRADE
B+

Details Movie Rated: R; Genres: Mystery and Thriller, Sci-fi and Fantasy; With: Sam Rockwell and Kevin Spacey

Duncan Jones is the son of David Bowie, so there may be some daddy issues at work in the director's Major Tom-themed debut Moon. Either way, he's crafted a trippy sci-fi yarn thanks to a gonzo Sam Rockwell as the solo operator of a lunar base whose only companions are the disturbingly calm voice of a HAL-like computer (Kevin Spacey) and his own clone (Rockwell again). Prepare to have your mind blown. EXTRAS Two fun commentaries, a fascinatingly nerdy making-of doc, and a cool short film by Jones. B+
