NZIFF: Operation Avalanche

At last the documentary has come to light, the tale of Operation Avalanche.

This is the story of a collection new CIA recruits. After a successful operation, they want in on finding the mole inside NASA. However, while there, they find out NASA can't get to land on the moon in time, so they come up with a plan to make it seem like they did. And from there, this gets into paranoid conspiracy.

This is presented as a documentary, with video of the time (ie low quality), although like most documentaries it still somehow has close up shots and such that wouldn't have been shot at the time. Anyway, the moon landings need to be faked, so this is about as real as you're going to get about how the CIA did it. It even references a number of conspiracies, such as c rock, and Room 237.

This felt a little over long, and tries to shift tone too much, but otherwise is quite watchable.
