“First Man Full Movie” On July 21, 1969, Neil Alden Armstrong entered history by being the first man to walk on the moon, and Damien Chazelle’s biographical film First Man traces the path (and sacrifices) of this pioneer. From his years as a test pilot, while at the helm of experimental rocket planes, to his recruitment by NASA, the training, both physically and mentally demanding, to which he was subjected, his first flight in space aboard Gemini 8, not to mention the many tragedies, both personal and professional, which the astronaut will face before being named chef de mission of Apollo 11, the feature film brilliantly records the decade of trial and error that led to this crucial stage of space exploration.
First Man takes us back to the heart of the 1960s, when the Russians always seemed to have a head start in the race to conquer space, as each course incident reduced public support for NASA, and in a deeply divided America, the pursuit of the moon symbolized the very disconnection of the “white man”. However, if we look at the portrait presented here, Neil Armstrong was as withdrawn as determined, and was unable to formulate an emotion, whether at a press conference or face-to-face with his wife or children. This is probably why, despite its great beauty, the feature film takes on a certain coldness, and proves less moving than The Right Stuff, which approached substantially the same subject.
Chazelle’s performance is impeccable, and the lunar images of First Man are so realistic that they may ignite fans of conspiracy theories who think that the moon landing of 1969 was created in a movie studio. By shouting the metal of the partitions separating the astronauts from the interstellar void and showing the artisanal side of the ships of the time, a hundred times more primitive than those of today, the filmmaker transmits the feeling of claustrophobia to the spectator, more to illustrate the almost suicidal bravery of these men traveling aboard prototypes that can turn into a tomb at any time. He reproduces the same confinement on Earth, occasionally filming his characters inside cramped frames.
