Absolutely joyless. This is the most depressing movie I have ever seen. Either Armstrong has asperger’s , or he is a massively depressed person. i can’t believe anyone would let someone so obviously depressed fly anything that explosive. What should be the most optimistic moments in his life are treated with a sullen odd emptiness that Gosling acts well but seems so unbelievable. The only person excited about going to the moon is buzz Aldrin who is portrayed as a massive asshole. I just can’t believe NASA is full of these sorts of people. At least take the race against Russia seriously, but that is hardly even addressed. It’s all about dead people. This is a poor rewriting of history and the first movie I ever left because it was too depressing to endure.
