What To Do? Tuesday's Pick: Moon at the Red Vic

Moon @ the Red Vic (through Wed.)

Moon is one of my favorite films of 2009. Created by David Bowie's son Duncan Jones, the movie riffs off 2001: A Space Odyssey but has its own pop culture sheen and subtle humor. Without saying too much, it's the story of astronaut Sam Bell (Sam Rockwell), whose work on the moon is not what it seems once he discovers a crash outside the safety of his solo space craft. Bell is aided by Gerty, a robot buddy voiced by Kevin Spacey who may or may not be working towards the same mission. With an eerie minimal electronic soundtrack, Moon is like a thoughtful sci-fi music video, beautifully shot and fun to watch. 

The film plays at the Red Vic through Wednesday.
