Nearly a half-century has passed since the majestic moment when Neil Armstrong stepped carefully onto the lunar landscape, left foot first, taking that giant leap for mankind.You're not considering the fact that Armstrong and Buzz Aldrin could have ended up stranded, left to die on the moon.An intimate character study that somehow becomes grand just when it needs to, "First Man" is a worthy successor not only to Chazelle's "Whiplash" and "La La Land," but to the astronaut films that precede it, like "Apollo 13" and especially "The Right Stuff".Based on the book by James R. Hansen with a script by Josh Singer, "First Man" is, amazingly, the first feature film about Armstrong. Seeking a fresh start, Armstrong becomes an astronaut in NASA's Gemini program.Hearing the news, Armstrong clutches a wine glass so tightly, he breaks it in his hand.You hold your breath imagining how Chazelle will pull off the landing itself.After the grandeur of the moon landing, an event that still boggles the mind, the movie ends on a note of extreme quiet just two people staring at each other.
