Description from Netflix: As he nears the end of a lonely three-year stint on the moon base Sarang, astronaut Sam Bell (Sam Rockwell) begins to hear and see strange things. It's not long before Sam suspects that his employer -- the conglomerate LUNAR -- has other plans for him. Featuring Kevin Spacey as the voice of a robot, this sci-fi thriller also stars Matt Berry and Kaya Scodelario. The film was an official selection at the Sundance Film Festival.

This was a great classic scifi story. They used models instead of special effects and plot and character instead of CGI. It had a great 1970s feel to it.

Sam Rockwell was amazing. He is such a great actor. The problem with him is that he is so different from movie to movie most people don't even realize it's the same actor.

Kevin Spacey was great as the computer. His monotone voice gave that feel of HAL's so you never quite knew if you could trust him or not.

If you miss this in the theater, I highly recommend renting it on DVD when it comes out.
