I just knew this was gonna have a high score on letterboxd. Yo, it's important, it's visionary, it's observable history, it's revolutionary for it's time, all that jazz. But guess what else? I don't for a minute believe those people actually went to the moon. Should still be required viewing for film classes though. _Final rating:★★½ - Not quite for me, but I definitely get the appeal._
