Movie review: Crazy dödsförakt in the oscar nominated Free solo

Alex Honnold is one of the world's most famous climbers. In the summer of 2017 made the Kalifornienfödde trettioåringen the seemingly unthinkable, he friklättrade up the fabled cliff of El Capitan in Yosemite national park. 900 metres straight up the air. Alone. Not a shred of a lifeline. Hour after hour, by a hair's breadth from stride straight into the great eternity.

The oscar nominated american documentary ”Free solo”, which portrays the death-defying Honnold, has already received a lot of attention outside the klättringskretsar. With all the right. It is consistently fascinating and dizzying, physically as well as mentally.

the Free solo climbers have documented a high mortality rate. The film describes the specific way to climb that to ”run an OLYMPIC race where the only gold medalist of the fittest”.

All the implicated in this case, of course, all of the time to death. Alex Honnold makes it perhaps the most superficial sense, he describes himself like in the samurajtermer. His girlfriend Sanni, as well as the film crew openly preppar for the risk that he will actually be dödstörta live, has a more complex attitude to the question of the fragile border between life and death.

still get the right sharp contours, without psykologisera unnecessarily. Here are quick glimpses from the Honnolds right special ursprungsfamilj with very närhetsproblematik.

But here is also a picture of a person who in many ways is the total opposite of the prejudiced image of the kicksökande, bekräftelsesjuk adrenalinjunkie.

Honnolds success and survival is subscribed to in many ways as a result of that he is a methodical trial continuing with a seemingly exceptional ability to memorize and focus.

It covers maybe not really into all of the existential questions you may have around the fear and this extreme type of risk-taking, but it is still very interesting.

It is difficult to imagine a more spectacular – but never immoral – documentary than ”Free solo”. It will work regardless of if you dream to climb K2 (maybe even already have done it) or if you signed with your heart in your throat only climbed to a measly rock-climbing wall, dressed in the harness.

See more. Three feature films with klättringstema: ”Cliffhanger - the dizzying abyss” (1993), ”Mission Impossible 2” (2000), ”Everest” (2015).
