Great to get some recognition for Moon. Simon Morris, wise man of film, sums up the 2010 cinematic year for Radio NZ National here.
Of NZ films, he says: “The Lovely Bones – undercooked in the script department, overcooked in the special effects one;
Boy – a huge hit but kids drama occasionally sat uncomfortably with the adult comedy;
Home by Christmas – well acted but a little short on content
The rest of NZ films this year suffered from too little story and a general feeling of glum hopelessness. Only one, the low budget independent The Insatiable Moon offered a straitforward plot, driven by some good performances, especially Greg Johnson as the hard-bitten boarding house owner.”
