Moon

R and I went to the movies last night. I seldom know what the movies at the indie theaters are, unless I've by chance seen a review in the paper or heard one on the radio. I did hear that the movie Moon won some awards at film festivals, so not knowing what it was, I decided to go see it anyhow. I was only able to glean from the internet that it was a science fiction movie about a man working at a moon station and his computer, a la 2001.
I won't spoil it for you, except to say that it did what good science fiction ought to do: bring up current issues in the society in a thoughtful sort of way. It wasn't innovative, rather, it played off our ideas about computers (2001) and intelligent, not fully human lifeforms (Blade Runner), in an interesting way. It's worth seeing.
