Today at Tor.com, I talk about Moon, which I had hailed in previous posts there as my last best hope for some cerebral science fiction in the next eon.

For once, something did not disappoint!

It’s a movie that doesn’t tell you everything; it shows you as much as it can, and you decide what you want to take away from it. It sounds laissez-faire, but I was totally hooked from the first minute (and pay attention in the quiet first act – you’ll be rewarded later).

Oh, and bring a tissue; Clint Mansell did the score, and anyone who saw Requiem for a Dream knows what happens when you give that guy three minutes and some instruments. I might have cried. Twice. You can’t prove a thing.
