First Man

First Man ★★★★★

This is one of my favorite movie of the year. Damien Chazelle once again proves that he is one of the best filmmaker working today. Superbly directed and acted, Ryan Gosling gives an amazing performance in this movie. His nuanced depiction of Neil Armstrong shows the audience how much the astronaut has to lose if he does not survive such a journey. Claire Foy is also worth mentioning as Armstrong's wife Janet. Her concern and worry for her husband's safe return from the moon were brilliantly presented.

But for me, what I like the most from the movie are it's score and production design. All of the music perfectly fit every sequence brilliantly, particularly the moon landing scene. And also the production design were very thoughtful and detailed. It reminded me of Stanley Kubrick's "2001 : A Space Odyssey".
