Tiff 2018: ‘First Man’ Review: Dir. Damien Chazelle (2018)

First Man review: Hot on the heels of runaway box-office and critical success – as well as Oscar-winner – Damien Chazelle reunites with his La La Land star Ryan Gosling for a very different feature; a film based around the lunar space landings and, more specifically, the first man on the moon, Neil Armstrong.

First Man review [Tiff]

Gosling is Armstrong, who we meet in the film in the middle of an intense test mission of a spacecraft designed to take its passenger to the edge of the Earth. The mission goes well, but Armstrong is distracted, which we later learn is due to the health of his baby daughter, Karen. His Nasa co-workers are also concerned, but a personal tragedy, which occurs in the opening ten minutes, focusses the young astronaut’s mind and he’s put forward to work on a new Gemini program, one which is designed in stages to

Toronto International Film Festival 2018 Review – First Man

First Man, 2018.

Directed by Damien Chazelle.

Starring Ryan Gosling, Claire Foy, Jason Clarke, Kyle Chandler, Patrick Fugit, Olivia Hamilton, Ciaran Hinds, Ethan Embry, Shea Whigham, Corey Stoll, and Pablo Schreiber.

Synopsis:

The riveting story of Nasa’s mission to land a man on the moon, focusing on Neil Armstrong and the years 1961-1969.

The first moon landing is such a seminal event in human history that has been touched on in various media several times that it begs the question what else can possibly be explored about it. Director Damien Chazelle manages to find that new element by heavily focusing on the very first man to step foot on the moon, Neil Armstrong, who is portrayed to great effect by Ryan Gosling. What they accomplish with First Man is a deconstruction of one of the most memorable people in history by examining what exactly drove him.

Ryan Gosling Heads into Orbit in New Trailer for Damien Chazelle’s ‘First Man’

Even though we’re still getting the last remnants of the summer season, on the other side of the world, the fall festival has begun. Damien Chazelle and Ryan Gosling’s reteam after La La Land, the Neil Armstrong biopic First Man, opened the 75th Venice Film Festival today with major praise. Timed with the debut, Universal Pictures has released the second trailer, showing much more from the space journey-meets-family drama.

Leonardo Goi said in our review, “At once cosmic and domestic, the director’s La La Land follow-up zeroes in on a man struggling for success with an unshakable, otherworldly willpower. In that, First Man is unmistakably Chazelle: Gosling’s Neil Armstrong fits nicely in the universe of career-driven, uber-determined workaholics the 33-year-old director has been following since Whiplash. But in its tragic undertones, complex psychological edifice, and claustrophobic visuals, First Man stands out, in both content and form,
