Tales of remarkable men in extraordinary times.

Tom Huddleston, Time Out, 2016-04-04

 

Cernan knows how to spin a great yarn, and if you do zone out for a moment, he can quickly reel you back in with the time he nearly died on his Gemini 9 mission or the surprisingly fierce politics behind his being chosen for the Apollo 10 crew.

Dylan Kickham, Entertainment Weekly, 2016-03-04

 

Cernan is an interesting guy -- interesting in himself and interesting as a type.

Mick LaSalle, San Francisco Chronicle, 2016-02-26

 

The film traces Cernan's career trajectory, going back to his days in San Diego as a hot-shot naval aviator, blending terrific archival footage with contemporary perspectives to quietly poetic effect.

Michael Rechtshaffen, Los Angeles Times, 2016-02-25

 

You already know the history told in "The Last Man on the Moon," but this story just never grows old.

Neil Genzlinger, New York Times, 2016-02-25

 

Craig charts the flight path of Cernan's life from his years as a naval aviator flying off aircraft carriers in the late 1950s to his selection as an astronaut in 1963 and his trips into space.

Soren Anderson, Seattle Times, 2016-02-25

 

Cernan is clearly still in awe of what America achieved during those cowboy years - but he also speaks, with the melancholy that results from several decades of hindsight, about the havoc it wreaked on the personal lives of the astronauts.

Sara Stewart, New York Post, 2016-02-25

 

This is a great documentary about a great man.

Richard Roeper, Chicago Sun-Times, 2016-02-25

 

"The Last Man on the Moon" is one of those movies we didn't realize we needed, but turns out to be just the thing for our fractured, cynical times.

Bill Goodykoontz, Arizona Republic, 2016-02-25

 

Cernan is proud of what he accomplished, calling himself the luckiest man in the world for all that he got to see. But he also expresses regret at having done it at the expense of his family.

Stephanie Merry, Washington Post, 2016-02-25

 

Take a pinch of Top Gun, stir in a generous dollop of The Right Stuff, add a light sprinkling of Mad Men and you have the formula for this uplifting documentary portrait of former Apollo astronaut Eugene Cernan.

Stephen Dalton, Hollywood Reporter, 2016-02-24

 

Craig's film stirs emotions closer to what Cernan exclaimed when first stepping into the lunar dust: "Oh, my golly! Unbelievable!"

Alan Scherstuhl, Village Voice, 2016-02-23

 

The Last Man on the Moon alternates between archival footage and current interviews, the latter tinged with nostalgia and regret. But Craig avoids either lionizing or reducing his subject.

Peter Howell, Toronto Star, 2015-03-27

 

Craig never makes his interviews, the film's brick and mortar, feel revelatory or vital.

Andrew Lapin, NPR, 2016-02-25

 

Director Mark Craig struggles to construct a terrestrial portrait of Cernan, now a Houston retiree in his 80s, and one senses a man powerless against the gravitational pull of his career.

J. R. Jones, Chicago Reader, 2016-02-25
