I saw it yesterday. Loved it. I have some thoughts but they have nothing to do with John Lear or the Moon.


For me, and maybe just for me, this movie was about corporatism and cloning. It was about the meaning of life and how making copies of yourself the intended way (Sam's memories of his wife pregnant, and later of his daughter) is so integral to the program of life and happiness that it cannot be taken away, even from a clone, or else he won't be motivated to work.

I also liked the computer helping him but have not analyzed this aspect of the movie.
