The third consecutive film by Damien Chazelle to be Oscar-nominated. However, as of 2019, First Man has the lowest Oscar count of any of his films. It also marks the first time he was not personally nominated, nor any of his actors, nor many of his frequent collaborators (cinematographer Linus Sandgren, film editor Tom Cross, and composer Justin Hurwitz).

Jan, you have to trust us. We've got this under control.
No, you don't. All these protocols and procedures to make it seem like you have it under control. But you're a bunch of boys making models out of balsa wood! You don't have anything under control!

The attempt to make it all feel dated and real worked well. There were no glossy space scenes. Add some interesting sounds and a lot of shakes can and the overal scene approach works.
But then there is the story. We all know what happens. So it was just about the angle they approached it at. Unfortunately they picked the boring angle.
The struggle with grieving was irritating. The lack of substance in the characters was disappointing. The frame was non existent. The length too long. The outcome underwhelming. The ending an anti climatic relief.
I will remember this film for the dirty toilets, great acting and my repeated checking of my watch. If you want to learn a tiny bit then watch it. But it is sadly no masterpiece. Let down but the story telling...
Recommend? Yes. On a Sunday...
