Moon came out in 2009, written and directed by Duncan Jones and starring Sam Rockwell as a blue collar worker stuck on the most dead-end job in space: Working on the moon. But, with a twist. It's one of those little movies that did so many little things so well (pun intended).
Because aside from being a taught drama that explores the loneliness one finds at the edge of sanity, Moon delivered practical VFX and miniatures at a time when that was still pretty uncommon. Moon cost only $5 million to make, which is pretty impressive considering what most sci-fi can cost.
According to BMD, the book includes "rare concept art" and "excerpts from the shooting script" which makes it a solid opportunity to learn more about the creative process behind such a strong movie.
