This week I watched Prospect, a great indy sci-fi movie set on a forest moon with toxic air and valuable organic gem/gold like plant eggs. The film centres on a father and daughter that land on the moon to prospect a huge deposit of the valuable commodity.
I loved the sparse atmosphere and dialogue that gets you speculating on the back-story and details of the situation straight away, most of which are left undisclosed. The design of the props and costumes are also excellent, portrayed as scavenged and old materials and components, a far cry from the futuristic shiny worlds of the main sci-fi franchises. While slightly predictable, the plot still does a good job of pulling you into the created world and makes you invest in the plight of the characters.
