Everyone knows what Neil Armstrong said as he stepped onto the moon so when Ryan Gosling delivers the line in "First Man," which opened the Venice Film Festival Wednesday, it sounds like dialogue as familiar as "To be or not to be". Oscar-winning "La La Land" director Damien Chazelle takes the viewer deeper than that epic moment when Armstrong took "one small step for man, one giant leap for mankind," to show what it must have felt like to leave the world behind, with a high chance of never coming back.Co-produced by Steven Spielberg, the film is based on a 2005 biography by historian James Hansen that hints at a remarkable gesture Armstrong may have made while standing on the moon.
