  • Apollo 11, 2019 - ★★★★

    APOLLO 11 (Miller, USA, 2019, 8)

    With footage like this and imagery like this, who cares whether APOLLO 11 transcends its premise and known story. But some of the details are so utterly strange that you forget that you know this story. For example, a countdown clock would be a hoary suspense device in a fiction film, but here, matched and timed with the footage, it becomes “suspense,” our experience of their experience. The sharp contrast between the absolute white of the lunar surface and the pitch black of space was something I noticed in FOR ALL MANKIND (one of the first films I ever reviewed publicly) . But here we also see the yellow-gold landing gear / legs of the Eagle, and it stands out like the gold coins in GREED, though to almost the opposite effect in APOLLO 11: Man’s achievement in the midst of pitiless nature. And the numerous visual nods to 2001 in some of the POV shots of docking almost make me credit the conspiracy theorists. 


    There’s lots of humanizing touches too — Aldrin being the jokester and Armstrong the straight arrow, and the rows of identically-clad scientists huddled over machines a fraction as powerful as the iPhone on which I’m typing this. And that last thing is a hint about what’s sad in APOLLO 11 (though it’s not a flaw in the film). One thing a found-footage film from decades ago will inevitably do is date itself — a JC Penney store, Krispy Kreme and other brands, ubiquitous ashtrays and a no-smoking sign on a transfer vehicle, all those identically-clad scientists. Yet despite their inferior equipment, they achieve something greater than we can even imagine today (litigation over the environmental-impact statements would prevent the building of Cape Kennedy before 1975). From its opening shots of a machine too big to rationally contemplate — the “truck” that moves the Saturn rocket’s launcher — APOLLO 11 rebukes our smallness of mind, and our national and political backwardness.

    Want even more consensus?

    Skip Rotten Tomatoes, they’re biased SJWs too afraid to criticize things like the Ghost Busters reboot. Avoid giving them ad revenue by using the minimalist alternative, Cinesift, for a quick aggregate:
