First Man(2018)

"doesn’t want to be a movie to celebrate a mission or a hero. It is a story about a man. A man who had to face loss and failure in order to make history"

After watching First Man in IMAX, it is clear that this movie didn’t want to celebrate the giant leap for Mankind, but rather the man who made the first step and how, all the failed attempts that lead to the successful mission, shaped Armstrong to persevere and walk on the Moon.
