Duncan Jones: on Existence

If I could travel back in time, I would urge more folks to see MOON, Duncan Jones‘ debut, hard sci-fi feature that melded the cinematic sensibilities of Peter Hyams and Tarkovsky. MOON is far superior and thoughtful entertainment to movies made with twenty times the budget. Today, I needn’t bend the space-time continuum as Duncan’s second movie, SOURCE CODE plays in theaters and you can see it on the big screen without altering the course of history… Other than the director’s own.

Duncan Jones bellies up to The High Bar to discuss SOURCE CODE, second chances and the very nature of… existence.

  • my favorite high bar chat!

    • Thanks, Sam. Glad you enjoyed it. I’ve spoken with Duncan a couple of times and he is one of my favorite guests.

      Your name is on the guest list (plus one!) for Wednesday night’s show at Town Hall with John Lithgow. Mention The High Bar and The Warren Report.

    Warren,

    Really enjoyed this interview. Moon and Source Code are fantastic and having great sci-fi in the theatres does my heart good.

    Thank you!

    • I really enjoy sci-fi, but so many film entries in this genre are sub-par. Thank goodness, for Duncan Jones. MOON is one of the best in the past ten years.

  • PS: I just read today that Duncan Jones is David Bowie’s son!? Crazy, I never knew. I like it that this hasn’t ever come up in the interviews I’ve watched with him, or blog posts, etc. Duncan’s just doing his own thing under his own power. Very cool.

  • When one is as gifted as Duncan is, there’s no need to mention the lineage; his films speak to his own amazing talents, yes?

    That said: very cool.
