today i saw moon, a 2009 science fiction movie. i’ve heard about the movie before, maybe seen a trailer, or maybe read a review, but i’ve never managed to see it until i found it on dvd on friday. it is about a guy working alone on a moon base, mining helium-3. close to his three year contract, he’s looking forward to return home, to his wive and daughter. he starts seeing things, until a fatal accident and someone’s too big curiosity brings everything out of control. leads to an unpleasant discovery. (if you want to know more, read the synopsis on wikipedia.) the movie is well made, and one particularly great part is the soundtrack, composed by clint mansell. parts of it became an earworm for me:

i can’t stop listening to ascension, a song on the isa (ᛁ) album by enslaved. pink floyd style prog fusing with black metal, creating an intense, beautiful, somehow strange but yet so neat stream, switching between mellow, dreamlike sequences and brutal riffs.
“never in need of sleep,
nor in need of truth
i would never have stayed in this darkness,
and we would ascend”
