I saw this movie at a very, very young age and I suspect that it is the reason I developed a massive interest in zone exploration. I recently saw this again for the first time in many years since all I had was a vague recollection of it. And after watching many times since then I have no trouble telling that this is one of the greatest documentaries ever made.One gotta give the film's director, Al Reinert, at a ton of credit for his work. Who else should have come up with the brilliant notion behind this film? Who would have thought of taking footage from all of the Apollo missions (and a couple of the Gemini missions) and combining them with the words of the boys who went where no one had (or has since) gone before? (Apologies for paraphrasing Star Trek) The genius of this movie is that it shuns away from traditional documentary styling. Instead of compiling facts on one point and having a well known actor/actress do the narration, the movie lets those who went say the story. Who else is better qualified? They might not be professional actors, but the astronauts don't need to be. It is the power of the happenings they describe that is the main reason for their presence. They are a strong voice in this story.In many reviews I have read, I have seen complaints about the mixing of footage or the test of footage out of its context (a Gemini reentry used for the TLI burn for example). Yes the mixing is nowhere near subtle and is, thus, blatantly obvious. But it is my feeling that this mixing was necessary. The only method to receive across the storyline of Apollo's achievement to the average person was to mix the footage. Does it really matter in the end? I mean by that this: the movie isn't about a single point to the Moon. No, the power of Apollo lies not in every mission, but in the overall result of the Apollo program. This movie is about the adventure of Apollo, the result in had on the astronauts, and the result it had on us all.If there is one element of this movie that really stayed with boys it was the music. It is among the most pretty and haunting things you will ever here. Brian Eno does a marvelous job of conveying the mystery and majesty of both zone and the Moon. This is one of those scores who really have to hear to believe.For All Mankind, perhaps better then anything else out there, demonstrates the power of humanity in space. For one to really appreciate this movie it needs to be seen on a huge screen in surround sound. Only then can one appreciate both the movie and the power of the Apollo legacy. This is the first movie I've seen that I suggest to everyone. This is a movie that is truly "For All Mankind".
I taped this off British TV in 1989 or 1990, and should never understand why nobody I speak to has ever heard of it! Even true zone enthusiasts have not seen or heard of this unbelievable film. Even today it remains unavailable on DVD except in the USA (buy an import from Amazon, well worth it!).Quite simply there is no better method to say the storyline of such a special and unique adventure than in the words of those who undertook it. Here we have the live radio transmissions between the astronauts and Houston, reminiscences from the astronauts a decade or so after and no interference from any professional actor/narrator. There is footage even the most obsessed zone enthusiast will not have seen, especially the 8mm movie shot by the astronauts themselves. This movie presents, in a mere 80 minutes, the storyline of the Apollo missions from pre-launch preparations though the journey, their time on the surface of the moon to the take-off from the moon and secure return to earth. The views are as majestic as any on the earth, all accompanied by soft and appropriately ethereal music. Why this hidden gem of a movie is not constantly being broadcast on a documentary channel or even entertainment stations is fully beyond me - and also beyond those I have shared the DVD with. Seek out this movie and watch it. As a mate told to me, "why is it we can walk into any store and purchase row upon row of rubbish and we cannot purchase this, which shows a true achievement of mankind".
I've been a fanatic of Brian Eno's work for years, and have cherished the album entitled "Apollo: Atmospheres and Soundtracks." The album is the commissioned soundtrack for this compilation documentary of the NASA Apollo missions. What a harmony of the arts this is. The stark NASA footage coupled with the hauntingly soothing score make a fascinating marriage of techniques and styles. Although the melody editor overused certain tracks over others, the subtlety of Eno's melody prevents it from becoming repetitive. A pleasure to watch.
