Damien Chazelle's 'First Man' is a harsh and real look at one of man's greatest achievements (TIFF review)
Damien Chazelle and Ryan Gosling are back at TIFF 2018 after their massive hit 'La La Land'. But their 'First Man' and 'La La Land' couldn't be more different.
'First Man' Review
At only 33, director Damien Chazelle already has three great movies on his resume. And they are three very different, distinct films. First was the heart-pounding two-character showdown drama (“Whiplash”). Then came the dynamic, full-blown romantic musical (“La La Land”). His latest is the most “conventional” of the three. Yet, it’s still bold and wildly inventive: a biopic of the central figure of one of the most iconic events in world history.
