Moon

I saw Moon last night in preparation for an onstage interview I'm hosting with the film's director Duncan Jones at the BFI Southbank tomorrow night, and all I can say now is that it's a quite brilliant piece of filmmaking, one that marks the arrival of a major, major directing talent. Smart, tense, with a terrifically contained script by Nathan Parker and a wonderful performance from Sam Rockwell, it is, however, almost impossible to talk about without spoiling. So, instead, you should go see it when it's released in the UK on July 17.

Tomorrow's screening and Q&A is sold out but very often there are returns on the night. If you're going, hope to see you there. If not, I'm sure they'll have the interview up on the BFI Southbank website soon enough.

Couldn't agree more. I saw it in Edinburgh and flipped out over it.

Can't wait to see it. Any film where the director references silent Running in the press notes has to be good IMHO. Will his Dad be there tonight I wonder?

Ziggy in the audience? That would be something...

Hope the Q&A went well - dead jealous of anyone lucky enough to have been in the audience that night.

Catching the film at the MIFF in a couple of weeks. Excited? Just a smidge...

It went very well, if I do say so myself. DJ twittered to say how much he'd enjoyed it.
