Moon, the critically-hailed Duncan Jones-directed film that had swept several of 2009’s film festivals is released on DVD and Blu-ray this week. At the end of his three-year rotation on the surface of the Moon, astronaut scientist Sam Bell (Sam Rockwell), joined only by his flight-deck computer GERTY, comes face-to-face with as an astounding personal discovery.

Moon is, without a doubt, a must-see film.
