Movie Review: ‘First Man’
When First Man premiered at the Venice Film Festival last month, it was showered with praise and also a Miami-based controversy no one saw coming.
After it was revealed that the famous planting of the American flag during the 1969 moon landing was omitted from the film, which tells the story of Neil Armstrong, Florida senator Marco Rubio took to Twitter to express his outrage at the film’s perceived lack of patriotism.
First Man moves at a decidedly slow pace, a fact that didn’t bother me in the slightest during its impressive first hour. But at 2 hours and 20 minutes, its meditative nature started to wear increasingly thin.
