The job of science fiction is to push boundaries. Indeed, the very description of science fiction suggests going a bit further than established fact. Science fiction is supposed to build on the known world around us. It is supposed to explore the unknown. When science fiction is at its best, this exploration is being fueled by our own human condition. The reason we are exploring outward is because there is an uncertainty inside. We feel incomplete in some regard, and the answers might be out there.
Science fiction films that can best communicate the relationship between the universe and our own minds tend to be the films that leave a lasting impression. This is my pick for the 20 films that do the best job of this.
A well-natured amalgam of both, say, “Star Wars,” and Duncan Jones‘ “Moon,” especially in its impactful first half, “Prospect” tells the story of a teenager (Sophie Thatcher) and her father (Jay Duplass) who travel to a remote alien moon’s toxic forest on the hunt for a rare substance, aiming to make a mint.
Recently I got to sit down with Jones and talk about all things Mute related and beyond.
Gt: So tell me how Mute came to be, supposedly it is your passion project?
Duncan Jones: "Yeah, sixteen years
I recently sat down with Jones to discuss Mute,
That’s where the specialized market finds itself after a successful four-month awards season. But those films, many of which are already streaming, are played out with not much gas left in the tank.
What will fill that void? So far, apart from some late-breaking modest foreign-language Oscar contenders (all lagging behind their predecessors) and minor initial interest in Sally Potter’s British import “The Party” (Roadside Attractions), now in its second week, the cupboards are bare. It looks like trouble at the arthouses until some fresh product opens and hopefully clicks.
“Young Karl Marx” (The Orchard) had a credible two-city debut this week, which is a positive sign. But it isn’t

A mute bartender goes up against his city’s gangsters in an effort to find out what happened to his missing partner.
Filmmakers should really stop saying how it took them a decade to get a film made. Nine times out of ten, the final product is disappointing. Case in point, Duncan Jones made the first script for Mute 16 years ago, and the hype has only (understandably) increased since his first two films Moon and Source Code became hits. That his previous film, Warcraft, received poor reviews meant only that a return to sci-fi was a good thing for Duncan, who’s been open about his passion for this brainchild project. Add in a Netflix release and the hype only got bigger, as people all over
After his much-admired 2009 debut film Moon, the clever follow-up Source Code and a foray into large-scale franchise filmmaking with Warcraft, Jones — who as the son of pop icon David Bowie has artistry, theatricality and a keen sense of the cosmic in his DNA — is delivering his first original film for the steaming giant Netflix, which debuted on Friday.
The project was shelved when Jones and actor Sam Rockwell decided to do what turned out to be Jones' very first film Moon. Then in the years that followed, Jones did two studio films, Source Code followed by Warcraft only to return to his original project to find it slightly dated.
"We wrote it around the same time that Sexy Beast came out and Layer Cake and these kind of a new wave of British gangster films that were coming out.

If “you do a Netflix movie, [and] you do another Netflix movie, at some point, people are not going to know whether you make good movies or not, because there’s not really that much information about how those movies have done,” Jones told a Los Angeles audience attending a special theatrical screening of “Mute” at the Pacific Theatres at the Grove. “There’s ratings, which is great, but you don’t know if anyone’s seen them.”

This Netflix original takes a little Blade Runner, mixes in some Witness with a dash of Pulp Fiction and Black Mirror for one hell of a fantastic futuristic noir thriller.

It’s an old trope, but movies in which characters are defined by the fact that they don’t speak almost inevitably lead to scenes in which they finally say something (à la Paul Dano’s long-repressed F-bomb in “Little Miss Sunshine”). “Mute” opens with a badly injured boy floating in a lake

“Berlin, the future, but close enough to feel familiar: In this loud, often brutal city, Leo (Alexander Skarsgård) – unable to speak from a childhood accident – searches for his missing girlfriend, the love of his life, his salvation, through dark streets, frenzied plazas, and the full spectrum of the cities shadow-dwellers. As he seeks answers, Leo finds himself mixed up with Cactus Bill (Paul Rudd) and Duck (Justin Theroux), a pair of irreverent Us army surgeons on a mission all their own.
