When I saw the trailer for In the Shadow of the Moon, a new documentary by David Sington and presented by Ron Howard, I knew I wanted to see it. Then Cinematical's take on the film only further reinforced this desire: "Combining new interviews with archival footage — from NASA and other sources — In the Shadow of the Moon's both transcendently beautiful and impressively down-to-earth. The footage of the moon missions — some of it never seen before — is both beautiful and magnificent; the interviews with the astronauts (with the notable absence of Neil Armstrong) are human and humble. There are no interviews with cultural commentators or scientists or NASA administrators — just the small group of men who've been to our nearest celestial neighbor: This is who we are; this is what we did."
