Dir. Todd Douglas Miller. 2019, 93 mins. DCP. Todd Douglas Miller’s fascinating, breathless, minute-to-minute chronicle of the 1969 Apollo 11 landing represents a unique nonfiction experience: a documentary outer space thriller. As three intrepid astronauts barrel through the void en route to the first ever lunar landing, symphonic editing and pulsing electronic scoring (made using solely vintage instruments) place viewers in the thick of the historical moment. Miller’s imagery is drawn from a trove of previously unreleased 65mm footage of the launch making this documentary a big screen must-see.
