If ever a (motion) picture was worth a thousand words, it’s this one: it depends solely on archival footage, some never seen before, and dispenses with narration and interviews. Apollo 11 is totally immersive, and in its own way, as much of an achievement as They Shall Not Grow Old. It’s as if you’re seeing Neil Armstrong, Buzz Aldrin, and Michael Collins land on the moon for the first time.
“Entirely awe-inspiring.” — Glenn Kenny, New York Times
“Apollo 11 is a cool, meticulous, at times enthralling documentary that captures the Apollo 11 flight in its entirety through raw footage drawn from the NASA vaults.” — Owen Gleiberman, Variety
“This doesn’t just feel like a movie. It gives you the sensation that you’ve been transported right into the middle of history.” — David Fear, Rolling Stone
