Don’t forget to select your favorite films!
I watched this on a plane trip, selected because it fit in the time I had left before landing. It reminded me of all the crazy climbing films a high school friend made me watch: all of them tell the story of a group of mates doing something borderline insane and living to tell the tale. They inspired us to lift weights and do crazy things like climb tall fences for no reason.
The Last Great Climb fits the mould…
Ryan Gosling is my new favourite actor. He has more lines in this film than Drive, but his ability to "act" without speaking is again incredibly well used in Ides.
Add in a touch of Philip Seymor Hoffman, some George Clooney, and the guy from Sideways; and you end up with buckets of "soft power".
The storyline kept me interested, with perhaps my only criticism being that it felt more like an episode rather than a film. But then I…
This film is what I wanted Senna to be. A behind-the-scenes look at the mentality of motor racing. Why do these guys risk their lives for not much glory, and what happens when it goes wrong?
It's a wonderfully crafted documentary, weaving a story and creating moments of real suspense. If you're vaguely interested in motor racing or the Isle of Man TT, it's definitely worth a watch.
P.S. I didn't watch TT3D in 3D, but like most "3D" movies, didn't feel like I was missing anything.
