In the Shadow of the Moon

New review from The Movie Snob

In the Shadow of the Moon (A). This is an excellent new documentary about the Apollo astronauts, still the only men ever to have walked on the moon. There are lots of clips from recent interviews with the astronauts, along with tons of NASA footage, much of it apparently never seen before. I was only 1 year old when Apollo 11 made the first moon landing, but I was still moved by the courage of the astronauts and the adulation the world poured on them after their feats. Notably absent — any new footage of Neil Armstrong, who has apparently become weird and reclusive since the historic flight. But this is still a fine movie for people who have any interest at all in this sort of thing.
