Damien Chazelle Verenigde Staten, 2018

msmichel's rating of the film First Man

Chazelle presents a technically marvelous film recreating the Genesis and Apollo projects that led to the moonwalk as well as a solid capture of Neil Armstrong throughout those years. But for something that should really capture the imagination and be significantly moving the film somehow falls a little flat. Casting is solid with Ryan Gosling making a strong impression.
