Moon

March 4, 2010

I saw¬†Moon last night. If you haven’t seen it yet, do yourselves a favor and head to the video store to rent it. Fortunately for me, I had the full cinematic experience of the movie, sans spoilers. I was literally awestruck. One of the best science fiction films I’ve seen in a long time, and one self-consciously aware of the great films from which it draws. Doing a bit of research, I’ve come to learn that the director, Duncan Jones, dropped out of his PhD program in philosophy to study filmmaking. Normally I might feel bad about such a thing, but I think this just goes to show other possible interesting careers for philosophers. (Don’t watch the trailers if you prefer the full cinematic experience. Trust me on this film recommendation. It’s worth your time.)
