A Biopic on the life of the legendary American Astronaut Neil Armstrong from 1961-1969, on his journey to becoming the first human to walk the moon. Exploring the sacrifices and costs on the Nation and Neil himself, during one of the most dangerous missions in the history of space travel.Written by
In the last meal before the Apollo 11 crew heads into space, Neil Armstrong is shown eating but using the European style, which is used in Europe and practically everywhere else in which the fork is held in the left hand and brought up to the mouth tines down. Americans, by contrast, switch their fork from their left hand to the right and brought to the mouth with tines pointing up. Ryan Gosling, who plays Armstrong, is Canadian but didn't fully adopt American ways for the movie. See more »

Dizzying (not in a good way), slow and a bit boring
I am not a film critic or student of the arts, but I do appreciate a good movie and, in my opinion, this was not one. The movie moves at a snail's pace and Chazelle's decision to shoot the majority of the movie with shaky handhelds and extreme closeups led to some real dizzying feelings for me and my wife. I felt a sense of claustrophobia the entire film due to the extreme close up and jump cuts. Maybe I am a bit dense and this is what the filmmaker was going for, but it made it a very uncomfortable experience. I kept waiting for him to pan out!
The actual story was a bit long and tedious and we never felt any real connection with the characters. The most intriguing character in the film was Buzz Aldrin and he was passed by -- I need someone to make Second Man!!! :-).
Overall, not a pleasant night at the movies.
