SHOOT THE MOON

by CYNDY POE on 5/7/2009

I HAD NEVER ORDERED FROM BUY.COM BEFORE, BUT COULDN'T FIND THE MOVIE I WAS LOOKING FOR IN DVD FORMAT AT WAL-MART.COM WHERE I USUALLY BUY, AND DECIDED TO GIVE IT A TRY. WITHIN ONE DAY OF ORDERING, I HAD A CONFERMATION E-MAIL THAT THE MOVIE WAS IN STOCK. THE SECOND DAY I GOT A CONFORMATION E-MAIL THAT IT WAS BEING SHIPPED, AND WITHIN 4-5 DAYS OF ORDRERING THE MOVIE IT WAS IN MY MAILBOX, IN PERFECT CONDITION. I WAS VERY HAPPY WITH THE SERVICE AND SELECTION, AND JUST MY ALL AROUND EXPERIENCE WITH BUY.COM AND I WOULD DEFINATELY RECOMMEND THEM.

Reviews
ReviewSource Chicago Sun-Times
Review Alan Parker's Shoot the Moon is a film that sometimes keeps its painful secrets even from itself. It opens with a shot of a man in agony. In another room, his wife, surrounded by four noisy daughters, dresses for a dinner that evening at which the man will be honored. The man has to pull himself together. His voice is choking with tears, he telephones the woman he loves and tells her how hard it will be to get through the evening without her. Then he puts on his rumpled tuxedo and marches out to do battle. As we watch this scene, we assume that the movie will answer several of the questions it raises, such as: What went wrong in the marriage? Why is the man in such agony? What is the nature of his love for the other woman? One of the surprises in Shoot the Moon is that none of these questions is ever quite answered, and we are asked to fill in the gaps ourselves...Shoot the Moon is a rare, good film, and yet, afterward, most of my thoughts were about how it might have been better. It is frustrating to feel that the filmmakers knew their characters intimately, but chose to reveal them only in part.
