This is kind of an update to the article Man Moon Jake posted a while back. Have a look and come back to read this if you wish.
Think of Jim Carrey's roles while watching this. I almost think he could have played the part.
Here's a trailer for MOON...
While watching this preview I realized, about half way through, that it shared obvious resonances with themes discussed here. Mainly The Truman show. This film will tie into Jim Carrey's vortex, fractal, blob pattern quite easily. But I'm pretty sure this preview sums most of it up already.
'The recycled man on the moon' should have been the title.
