An impressive debut film.
7 March 2014 | by (Bradenton, Florida) – See all my reviews

I recently watched Duncan Jones' first full-length film, "Moon" and I was exceptionally impressed. The film was extremely inventive, unique and was amazing to look at considering it had a minuscule budget AND was set on the moon! So, when I noticed that "Whistle" was included as a bonus on the DVD, I was excited to watch it too.

The film begins with a British family relocating to another country (it looks like Switzerland to me). The wife did not like the move and you wonder why the husband would do this. Then, you slowly start to realize--he's an assassin! Now you never are sure WHO he works for, but you can assume he's not just some mercenary--as he DOES have a conscience. And, that's the problem--because one of his killings goes terribly wrong...and he cannot live with himself. What's next? See the short film.

The story is exciting, interesting and is very, very impressive considering Duncan Jones was inexperienced when he made this film. Taken along with "Moon", he is definitely a man to watch. And, incidentally, he's the son of David Bowie (whose real last name is Jones). Well worth seeing.
