Moon (Jones, 2009): RooftopFilm Club, Queen of Hoxton Pub, 9pm
I have been to screenings at this venue and been
very impressed. The seating is in comfortable directors' chairs, there is excellent food and drink and
blankets to keep warm in cool weather. Here is a list of their upcoming attractions.
Chicago Reader review: On the lunar surface, a lonely astronaut for a commercial mining company
(Sam Rockwell) counts the days until his three-year contract is up and
he can return home to his wife and daughter. But after a hallucinatory
image of a woman causes him to crash his land rover, the computer
monitoring the moon base (given deadpan voice by Kevin Spacey) diagnoses
him with possible brain damage and confines him to the infirmary.
Written and directed by Duncan Jones (son of space oddity David Bowie),
this eerie drama harks back to sci-fi movies of the late 60s and early
70s that explored inner as well as outer space (2001, Solaris, and particularly Silent Running).
As it turns out, the moon is just another shitty place to work, and as
the hero discovers to his horror, even his own selfhood is company
Here is the trailer.
