'70s style science fiction done really quite well. I enjoyed that.

^I was a little underwhelmed by Moon. It started very promising, but as it went on, it loosened its grip and in the end I just didn't care. Maybe I wasn't engaged enough. But, Sam Rockwell was good though.

I just read a synopsis after watching that trailer, and it seems to be very intriguing, apart from that visual madness. I didn't even know about this film, but it'll be on my radar now.

Moon definitely shifted tone a bit as it went on--went from being sort of a "what's going on?" puzzle to something more character oriented, but I sort of appreciated that since I was a little afraid it would turn into a Shyamalan-style "gotcha" based on the first 20 minutes or so. Watching the interaction between the two of them was really interesting and yeah, Rockwell did a great job with that. I also liked how they played up certain conventions and then flouted them, like Gerty's obvious resemblances to HAL in the first part of the film.

Enter the Void does look sort of interesting--I dunno that I could watch it in the dark, but I might pick it up if I ever see it around.

The part of the problem might be that I was going into Moon with great expectations, after hearing so many good things about it. I can't quite put my finger on what I was expecting, maybe something with little more mystery to it (but not in that cheap Shyamalan manner) and less revealing and transparency later on. Basically, I expected a different film, but that's my problem I guess. Well, I need to rewatch it with a different mindset to form a full opinion.

It was bad. I mean REALLY bad, and not even in that Syfi Saturday Night 10 P.M. crapfest they parade out every weekend for stoned shut-ins like me. Sean Lawlor's fake Irish accent was horrendous, and here's the funny thing, HE'S FREAKIN' IRISH! How in the fuck does an Irishman mess up his own language? I came into this expecting it to be bad but in a humorous way, but it couldn't even do me that one simple task. A pox on this film!

I need to see this too.
Could you recommend me any similar films to Irreversible? Not necessarily the penises and rape and all... but something gritty and and intense with unique filming styles.

Antichrist, Irreversible, and Moon are all AMAZING films. Antichrist and Irreversible .. What mind fucks. Irreversible kept me from having sex the night I watched it. Antichrist was just so well-done. The acting is almost immaculate. Emotional movie, though. I feel like it drained me.

I was really impressed with Moon, too. Great story and it seems so original. Slow at times, but this movie birthed a new, found respect for Rockwell. Also, Kevin Spacey as Gerty? Yesssss.

Freebase: Have you seen Mulholland Dr.? If not, check it out. It might be what you're looking for.

Yea, saw M. Drive several times, along with all of Lynch's other flicks. They're OK, some better than others, but I generally come out of each experience with the feeling he makes no sense for the express purpose of making no sense. I don't really dig that very much.

^I usually simply get mind fuked at every time.
If you want to find sense, you just will, you don't need the director to spoon-feed it to you.
