    Damien Chazelle sheds light on the personal tolls of Neil Armstrong in First Man with introspective direction and moving audio. The film's astronomical sequences and intimate performance from Gosling make for a fairly solid piece on one of the giant leaps in the history of mankind. 3.95/5

    This is the bio of the man and his family. Slow and dramatic, this will test your patience if you're expecting a moon landing focused storyline. This deserved more award recognition, but plays too much like an indie film for the mainstream audience that it was marketed to. This was slightly ignored on release and its indie style my have put some off. Great bio film and that final landing is incredible to watch. Full of depth and accuracy. 16/06/2019

    Every time that someone's on a spacecraft, I was into First Man. It might genuinely be the first time I didn't hate scenes shot with continual use of shaky cam, which is noteworthy. But by and large First Man was not for me, biopics often aren't, and First Man is absolutely a biopic. It's not about NASA, or the Space Race, or landing on the moon, on astronauts, those things are present, but it's about Armstrong. I know that, because he is the only person, place or thing we get any real insight into.
