He's about to leave, thinks about it a moment, and you can ''see'' him think, "Fuck it!", and decides to make his own little statement.

* As much of a {{Tearjerker}} as it can be, {{Sam Rockwell}}'s performance in this film is one long CMOA. The man spends about an hour and a half playing two identical clones of himself, but he manages to make it completely believable by giving each version of Sam its own distinct persona. It's the kind of ActingForTwo arrangement that most movies play for laughs, but he ''will'' have you in tears by the end.

* Meta: Despite failing to get any Oscar nominations, this movie managed to beat both ''Film/{{Avatar}}'' and ''Film/{{District 9}}'' (both of which were nominated for Best Picture at the Oscars that year) for the Hugo Award for Best Feature Film. For perspective, ''Moon'' was made with about one sixth of the budget that Film/''{{District 9}}'' had, and with about one ''eightieth'' of the budget that ''Film/{{Avatar}}'' had. ''And'' it's Duncan Jones' first feature film. Well done, Mr. Jones. Well done.
