Description

During the Apollo lunar missions from 1968 to 1972, those on-board were given 16mm cameras and told to film anything and everything they could, in space, in orbit, and on the surface of the moon itself. Two decades later, filmmaker Al Reinert went into the NASA vaults to create this extraordinary compendium of their journeys and experiences.

Assembled from hundreds of hours of the astronauts’ own footage, with a soundtrack made up of their memories and a specially composed score by Brian Eno, the film takes the form of one journey to the moon and back again, building with elegant simplicity and exquisite construction to create an overwhelming vision of human endeavour and miraculous experience.

At once intimate and awe-inspiring, For All Mankind is a genuinely mesmerising firsthand document of one of the high points of the 20th century. The Masters of Cinema Series is proud to present Criterion’s beautiful high-definition restoration of the film for its UK home viewing première in a comprehensive, director-approved edition.

  • A new high-definition transfer, supervised by director Al Reinert
  • New 5.1 soundtrack remastered from original sound stems (BD-only)
  • Audio commentary featuring Al Reinert and Eugene A. Cernan

Just buy this, you need it in your collection, a superb unique film with an amazing soundtrack and images that are literally out of this world, this blu-ray is a 5 star effort from EUREKA and Masters of Cinema who never cease to provide us here in the UK with Critereon-like releases and this one is no exception. A DVD and super booklet are included too. It'll be watched time after time and enjoyed. I love the commentaries from the Apollo Astronauts and the picture and sound quality is amazing. Brian Eno's music fits perfectly, creating the right awe inspiring themes. It's also full of special features on the restoration and background behind the movie. Get It! it's ideal for those chill out times at the end of a tired and weary night..Essential. 5*
