1864: A US civil war scout finds a mysterious something.

2039: a lone astronaut (Gunner Wright) is abandoned in space for reasons unknown.

2012: wunderkind William Eubank has our attention.

While his debut will infuriate some in its adherence to Kubrick’s cryptic stargazing and Malick’s spiritual yearning, others will be excited that those comparisons are worth making.

Somehow – for only $500,000, using a set he built in his parents’ yard – Eubank has fashioned an avant-garde Moon, harnessing greater ambition and technical flair than most mega-budget hype magnets.
