FIRST MAN (M) A small step, a gi­ant leap and a mighty film, US, 141 min

Townsville Bulletin - Townsville Eye - - FLICKS -

The epic story of the eight-year jour­ney of Neil Arm­strong (Ryan Gosling) from unas­sum­ing civil­ian pi­lot-en­gi­neer to un­likely NASA as­tro­naut, be­com­ing the first man to set foot on the moon. Though its brave visual style and skele­tal sto­ry­telling are sure to di­vide view­ers, First Man is still un­doubt­edly one of the best movie re­leases of 2018. Os­car-win­ning di­rec­tor Damien Chazelle ( La La Land) has shaped an im­pos­ing screen spec­ta­cle with an in­ti­macy and in­tri­cacy nor­mally un­de­tected on this vast cin­e­matic scale. Co-stars Claire Foy.
