I liked the movie overall, but didn’t love it. It wasn’t quite as terrifying a space movie as Gravity, and I feel like the underlying theme of lost human connection (mainly with his wife) could have been done a little better. They tried to hammer that home too little too late. I guess I learned some stuff about the space program, though. Mostly how ballsy all these guys were.

Compared to Damien Chazelle’s other two films (Whiplash and La La Land), I’d rank this one third. Maybe it needed some jazz music? SPACE JAZZ! He strayed too far out of his jazz comfort zone.

I do think the editing and visualization of the technical scenes are definitely Oscar worthy, though, in my opinion.

I would also recommend seeing this in theaters, as opposed to at home, just so you can experience seeing Ryan Gosling’s eyelashes be as tall as you are!

Now I’m going to shake my phone really fast as I hit ” Post” to give my comment the full effect.
