Moon is brilliant I totally agree!
I love how thought provoking and austere this film is. To me this film echoes many qualities of ambient music, such as textural emphasis and minimalist approaches, and utilizes the intervals in between the words of the characters to build tension to a great degree.
I love it and have watched a few times now. Btw... its still currently available for online streaming at netflix too ;-)
Loved "Moon" ... Rockwell was brilliant. And I thought the soundtrack was amazing ... so good to hear a truly ambient sound track in such a film. Here's hoping for more flicks that hit on all cylinders like this one did ...
Those of you who enjoyed Clint Mansell's work in Moon might also be interested in his score for Black Swan. A truly disturbing movie with some great music and performances...
... but definitely not a feel good film, y'know?
I've added this to my Neflix streaming list...
I didn't know Duncan Jones was Zowie Bowie (David's kid).
Anything Clint Mansell touches seems to turn to gold. His soundtrack for Aronofsky's the Fountain is truly excellent and as was mentioned previously, Black Swan is wonderful but then you could just about mention any Aronofsky film and Mansell's soundtrack shines through.
That said, did he not soundtrack the Doom movie... and Sahara? ;)
