In the Shadow of the Moon

  • Film

Time Out says

There's something of the well-polished Discovery Channel doc about this documentary that explores the early moon landings of the Apollo Space Programme between 1968 and 1972 and which won the best documentary award at this year's Sundance. But Sington's film more than makes up for its stylistic ordinariness with the high quailty of its interviews and plenitude of staggering archive footage. Neil Armstrong, famously reclusive, is notably absent, but Buzz Aldrin and, especially, Michael Collins are witty and wise presences. Which is all quite impressive for an event that was staged in a film studio in the desert . . .
