Man in the “Moon”

It’s always refreshing to see a kid, bred from the loins of rock royalty, not grow up to be a drug-addled waste of life, or a poor man’s version of their famous parent. I can only imagine how hard it must’ve been for Zowie Bowie to make a name for himself as a man in the glittery shadow of his father.

An easy way to do this would be to change your name from Zowie Bowie to Duncan Jones, while the much more challenging move would be to find your own passion, cultivate your talent and display that talent in an undeniable way.

If it’s nearly impossible to review a movie without spoiling it, that’s a good thing. So I won’t tell you much.

What I will tell you that “Moon” is a simple story that weaves together, brilliantly, very complex themes. That it pays a charming homage to sci-fi greats without being weighed down by nostalgia. That the production design and effects weren’t revolutionary, but sexy enough for me to willingly suspend my disbelief, and that Sam Rockwell is one of the greatest living actors today.

Yeah, I know I’m a little late on this one, but go see it before it leaves the theater.
