“The word ‘awesome’ gets thrown around so much that it’s become devoid of meaning… Strictly speaking, very few things really inspire a sense of slack-jawed wonder… But the NASA mission at the heart of the must-see documentary Apollo 11 reminds you what it feels to be truly awestruck… Director Todd Douglas Miller’s new film allows you to experience the first moon landing, on July 20, 1969, in an entirely new and intimate light… Assembled from a newly discovered archive of 65 mm footage, Miller’s film looks so crisp and pristine, it feels like it was shot yesterday instead of a half-century ago. Only the clothes of the Florida looky-loos tailgating to witness history, the sea of chain-smoking men in white short sleeves and pocket protectors in Mission Control, and the stentorian voice of Walter Cronkite give off a whiff of the past. Apollo 11, the mission that sent Armstrong and Buzz Aldrin to the moon, was a miracle of human endeavor and ingenuity from its fiery, booster-igniting takeoff to its ultimate splashdown. And the film chronicles each stage of the weeklong mission like a tick-tock procedural where everything could go wrong – but somehow didn’t…. Apollo 11 is an inspiring, magical, and transcendent testament to human know-how, ambition, and achievement of the seemingly impossible. It’s, in a word, awesome.”—Chris Nashawaty, Entertainment Weekly
