Editorial Reviews

Moonlight by the Sea depicts a futuristic world where ""The Corporation"" reigns, and salesmen are the foot soldiers of mind-control and propaganda. When a turn of events causes him to lose contact with The Corporation, top salesman Albion Moonlight finds himself torn between his loyalty to The Corporation and his desire to find his estranged wife. A character study of paranoid structures and fascistic systems in a future world.

4.0 out of 5 stars A thinking man's sci-fi tale July 2, 2005
Format:DVD
I saw this film by Justin Hennard at the 2004 Fearless Tales Genre Fest in San Francisco and it simply blew me away! 'Moonlight by the Sea' is a tale of a man's battle within himself and the company that owns him. Set in the near future, one conglomerate company - The Corporation, now owns the world. Albion Moonlight (Sean Allen), is The Corporation's top salesman and foot soldier, who while traveling on an urgent and important mission, crashes his spaceship onto a barren planet with no chance of rescue, communication or possibility of completing that 'big deal.' Meanwhile back on earth, everyone is linked to The Corporation either by employment or the mass consumerism of its mind-altering, addictive products. This is 'Big Brother' on a more logical scale - and eerily - it doesn't appear so far off from the distant future when reviewing the country's status today. Albion, now free of the Corporation's wiring and mechanized thought-reading equipments that have been part of his being for most of his adult life, is, for the first time, alone. His journey through the dry and desolate landscape puts his 'own' mind into overdrive. Have the voices of the Corporation finally stopped? Does he now have free thought and a chance to escape? Unfortunately 'no.' With all this 'free time' on his hands and the fear that he will eventually be rescued and returned to 'active' duty, he obsesses on how to complete his mission. So 'new' is free thought and privacy to him, that he conjures up 2 beings to walk his journey with him; there is Stranger, played by Kingsley Martin, who expertly portrays the side of Albion's brain that is 'all Corporation'. When Albion lets his thoughts wander to the other side of his brain and the prospective of a real life, Stranger begins to short circuit! Read more ›

3.0 out of 5 stars Excellent Indie Sci-Fi January 20, 2006
Format:DVD
From some of the crew who toiled on A SCANNER DARKLY comes this interesting indie science fiction movie, MOONLIGHT BY THE SEA. Most of the "underground" indie stuff hitting DVD these days is total crap (see the atrocious DARK WOODS, if you can stand to view an example). Produced at the same budget level as many a brainless schlock-fest is MOONLIGHT BY THE SEA... but MBTS manages to be well-shot, well-written, well-acted, and completely fascinating. I guess there's a difference between a real independent movie director and some goof who just bought a camcorder from Circuit City, learned how to hit the "record" button, and became an instant "director" ...Anyone who wants to make indie movies on digital video, or anyone who wants to see what can be accomplished on such malnourished budgets, should see MOONLIGHT BY THE SEA. This is indie filmmaking done right.

MBTS plays like a low budget THX-1138. MBTS is dark, weird, and spiced up with social commentary. The grim sci-fi plot is interesting and the acting is good, so it's easy to stick with it despite a slower-than-normal editing pace. At points, the visuals of MBTS give away the microscopic budget. At other points, the digital cinematography is breathtaking; miles above many properly financed movies.

I recommend MOONLIGHT BY THE SEA to sci-fi enthusiasts, and to those interested in the best of today's underground indie cinema.

3.0 out of 5 stars ??? August 15, 2008
Format:DVD|Amazon Verified Purchase
WOW! This is one really strange movie. Purchased this DVD because a friend recommended it. I now think he must have been drunk or something because this flick is very difficult to follow. Yes, it's interesting but weird in the extreme. I'll have to give it another 2 or 3 views I believe to see if I can get the message (so to speak). Nuff said...

1.0 out of 5 stars Rebel with without a plan February 28, 2006
Format:DVD
This movis is crap. I would not recommend this movie to anyone! It has no discernible plot.It's special effects is non-existent.The actors can't even fight out of a wet paperbag. We need to take all copies of this film and destroy it. This will do a great service to humanity.
