The Farthest deftly highlights the beauty of the images of the outer planets, the courage of the scientists behind those images, and the poignancy of what they teach us.

It makes you proud to be human, and embarrassed to still use your fingers when attempting maths.

Fascinating docu on the history and discoveries of Voyager.

Ultimately, The Farthest is a traditional documentary, brimming with detail and entertainment, and Reynolds does not even need to include Neil Degrasse Tyson's shtick.

The Farthest is full of experts who talk lovingly and precisely on their pet subject; their giddy enthusiasm somehow not just thrilling and informative, but comforting.

Made under the BBC's Storyville banner, it's bound to appear on TV before long, but those who enjoy marvelling at the solar system's planets may prefer a cinema screening.

It's like one of those great Horizon episodes from the 1980s or 90s, before all science docs started sounding as if they were written for overexcited seven-year-olds.

The two Voyager space probes are the subjects of this appropriately epic documentary, full of lavish visuals, brain-frying statistics and infectiously enthusiastic Nasa boffins.

Accessible, inspirational and utterly fascinating.

The documentary's greatest strength lies in the way Reynolds allows the scientific to mix with the philosophical and the deeply emotional.

With emphasis on Earth's microscopic standing within an infinite cosmos, as well as the sobering fact that Voyager 1 will continue travelling for millions of years, outliving mankind, the film's scope is truly astronomical.

It's rare for a film to make one swell with pride about something he or she had no direct hand in, but "The Farthest" accomplishes that feat with aplomb.
August 10, 2017
The accounts of scientists, whose enthusiasm still glows, is as wondrous as the technology seen here.

Frankly, a documentary like Emer Reynolds' "The Farthest" is exactly what the world needs right now.

The scientists' joy as they discuss the mission proves infectious.

For anyone who ever doubted that technology could contain philosophy, that physics could be metaphorical poetry, that science is the closest force to magic that we will ever know: watch The Farthest.

Very highly recommended.

Emer Reynolds' magnificent account of the creation of Voyager I, a Nasa space probe launched in 1977 with the noble aim of introducing ourselves to extraterrestrials.

A superb cinematic experience and one with a far more global consciousness than any Irish film to date.
