“First Man 4K: The Story of One Man”
Damien Chazelle confidently moves up the career ladder: First, the successful Obsession, which became the first job on the young director’s list. Then the Oscar-winning “La La Land 4K”, and now “The Man on the Moon”, who has already received nationwide praise and waiting for his cherished Oscar statuette at five minutes. No less successful is Ryan Gosling, who embodies Neil Armstrong on the screen. Do not think that this is another biopic about the famous astronaut. Damien Chasell removed the tape, avoiding the ridiculous patriotism with a predominance of flags at every step.
“First Man is a movie about a man, not an astronaut. Neil, of course, is a specialist in this profession, but the first thing Damien wanted to show is who Ryan Gosling plays. Therefore, the opening scene at first plunges into shock, suggesting that now we will be shown a flight into space, and then makes us wonder if this is a dream or an ordinary training session. An astronaut from God is not made from the Nile, which is why during the entire film he fails a couple of times in preparation for the flight: Both physical and moral. The initial scene also embodies the inner state of the hero: Because of cancer, his daughter dies, leaving Nile alone with her own helplessness, which could not help him in the fight against this disease. Trying to forget the bitterness of the lost, he plunges into the work, which becomes his salvation. But the salvation is exceptional – the thing, because of which he subsequently destroys himself and his family. Damien set himself the task of making Nick not a biography about which he spoke and that’s all. He wanted to show the existence of an ordinary cosmonaut who, like all others, is preparing for important work, swearing all the problems of everyday life.
On the one hand, I would like to mention the work of Josh Singer, who managed to weave into one scenario the number of characters and their interaction with the main character. On the other hand, there is nothing so amazing about it. Yes, itÂs interesting to look at it, even intriguing, what will happen next and how a certain event will affect Neil, but … Take at least Armstrong’s wife, Janet Sharon, played by Claire Foy. Strong character, both psychologically and professionally. But she has only one or two of the same powerful scenes, but the character turned out to be charismatic. No less charismatic than Gosling himself. Also the other characters. They seem to be felt inside the plot, they are the thread that weaves together all the events and all the other minor characters, but this feeling occurs once or twice. There is no single chemical consistency, except perhaps once, when the first flight of Neal and his partner failed. But in general, not quite a good component, which could have been worked out even once.
Unfortunately, but ÂMan on the Moon is a movie of character and taste. Fully, it looks and feels fresh, but not every type of spectator will like it. No, for example, the excitement that experienced when viewing “Aquamen”. Or adrenaline rush from “The House that Jack Built.” There is no popcorn that was on the “Mission Impossible: Consequences.” And why? Damien Chazell painted a picture that does not seek its audience, but finds it. The difference is huge. All of the above films have their own viewers, and similar tapes, like Shazelle, have dozens, if not a few. And you need to guess and them, until they left the genre. As the movie showed, with large fragments managed to guess. Little things that have not been completely removed – not an obstacle to see “Man on the Moon” and admire. And to understand that Oscar will be well deserved.
After our “Salute-7”, which technically came out much better than the picture of Damien, you look at it somehow faded. Nevertheless, the director, in the absence of “wow moments”, those who actually plunged into open shock (there are quite a few of them), plunged into a pretty visual presentation. From that most of the moments and looks dynamic, with the necessary admiration. Including his relationship with his wife, who look more intense than growing from case to case. The last idiom, however, develops into the first example, but it is precisely the tense situation that occurs between Neil and Janet, in which each of the partners is on the verge. This is what decorates the film, given that every such conversation between them is fantastically beaten up by Gosling and Foy.
Verdict. “Man on the Moon” – undeniable, stunning film, the emotions from which seethe a few hours after viewing. Shazel managed to keep the bar in the course of the entire film and even though the ending was not exactly what was expected of her, the end turned out to be quite tolerable and peaceful. And finally, having added all this to the gentle soundtrack of Justin Hurwitz, we get two (with kopecks) hours full of dullness and tragedy, and exciting drama.
A small step for the cinema, but a big one for Shasella.
