American flag controversy: On August 31, 2018, it was reported that the film would not include a scene of Armstrong and Buzz Aldrin planting the American flag on the Moon. Florida Senator Marco Rubio described the omission as "total lunacy". Chazelle responded with a statement, saying: "I show the American flag standing on the lunar surface, but the flag being physically planted into the surface is one of several moments (...) that I chose not to focus upon. To address the question of whether this was a political statement, the answer is no. My goal with this movie was to share with audiences the unseen, unknown aspects of America's mission to the Moon." Following the film's below-expectations opening of $16 million, some analysts speculated that the flag controversy was in part to blame. See more »
During the launch scene for Apollo 11, during the aerial shot of Cape Canaveral from out over the Atlantic, the Shuttle Landing Facility is clearly visible in the background. The SLF was not constructed until 1974, therefore it did not exist in 1969. See more »

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...
