Mute Duncan Jones Netflix posterDuncan Jones is one of the most slept on directors at the moment. His doppelganger thriller of a debut, Moon, is still an impressive feat, its follow up, Source Code dealt stunningly with alt-realities and Warcraft was undeservedly maligned.

Mute marks the director’s next film, a long gestating passion project made possible thanks to the folks at Netflix. The story concerns a mute bartender (Alexander Skarsgard) searching for his missing girlfriend in a neon-drenched future.

Jones has a talented voice and uses high concept to explore deep human ideas. I can’t wait to see what he’s done with this.

Mute co-stars Paul Rudd and Justin Theroux, and will be available on Netflix February 23.
