The Space Movie can be described as Marshall McLuhan for the eyes. This British documentary traces the history of space travel, from the early rocket experiments of the 1920s to the lunar landings of the 1960s. The information is conveyed in near-kaleidoscopic fashion, minus narration, with one image following the other at an exhausting rate.
