Directed by Damien Chazelle. With Ryan Gosling, Claire Foy, Jason Clarke, Kyle Chandler. A look at the life of the astronaut, Neil Armstrong, and the legendary space mission that led him to become the first man to walk on the Moon on July 20, 1969.
I imagine the thought process that brought us this movie was something like this: “how do we make the most boring, soul sucking, sad, depressing, and humorless depiction of our journey to the moon, while at the same time, using some of the best special effects ever seen in a biographical space film?” I wasn’t impressed with the acting, nor the story, but the visuals were pretty to look at.
First Man originally appeared on Adam Selvidge’s Website on March 31, 2019.
