A cue to the responsibility of filmmakers in a time when most seldom trust their audiences to think about answers, and asks questions that paralyze us in intricate fascination long after the final shot has left an imprint.

Solaris and Blade Runner meet Silent Running. A movie with both a brain and a heart.

Intriguing, imaginative, and thematically ambitious, Moon gives ample proof that Jones is a serious talent, pushing his concepts into intellectually and spiritually challenging territory.

Simple and alien-free example of the sci-fi genre. Slow, but there are so many details deserving attention, the chance to take them all in one only enhances the experience.

Someday, Rockwell will get his Oscar due, I have no doubt. But I bet that when that day comes, lots of movie lovers will look back and say, 'But it should have happened for Moon.'

A throwback to the golden era of 1970s sci-fi, Moon is a long overdue and morally relevant antidote to the overblown bombast of todays science fiction.

Moon is an old-fashioned sci-fi movie in the best sense: far more psychological drama than space opera, dispensing with overweening CGI and loud flashy action sequences while harking back to subtler, more ideas-driven entries in the genre.

Evocative, riveting, and ultimately contemporary in a roundabout way, Moon is a superb mood piece, sublimely cradled by Jones, filtered through tireless work from star Sam Rockwell.

While some of it is clearly inspired by other material, director Jones spins this yarn into something unique and fresh and new and exhilarating.

Despite the modest resources, 'Moon' is so visually astonishing that it almost looks like it was shot on location on Earth's oldest satellite.

Out of this world. A story that could easily have been from the early days of science fiction. It's a film that has a make-or-break lead role, and Sam Rockwell makes it an incredible journey. Paul Chambers, CNN.

Contemplates a future full of potential and yet robbed of hope, an era where the worst malfunction technology can suffer is to simply function too well for its own good.

Moon entertains by posing a puzzle whose solution opens into disturbing existential truths and paradoxes.
