CraigMakk: (Rental) This movie is crazy. Aside from the fact that it won numerous awards in Britain, and was released in limited theaters in the U.S., Moon is a movie that seems like it shouldn’t even exist. The premise is kind of crazy, and is essentially Sam Rockwell’s “Castaway” story. He pulls it off in every way, playing a compelling dual role that actually sells you that it could be two different people. I am a fan of crazy roles where actors get the opportunity to do something out of the ordinary, and that helps to carry the relatively traditional sci-fi clone premise through to the end. And don’t forget that Kevin Spacey plays an uncomfortably caring GERTY (otherwise known as this millennium’s HAL). All in all, this movie is crazy enough to watch on Netflix, and it will definitely make you join the Rockwell Crazy  Train.
