Free-Solo is a whoppingly scary documentary. Whether it deserves to win the academy award over RBG or Minding the Gap will take some processing time on my part. Those were my personal favorites for 2018. The film does get at the heart of the insanity of scaling mountains without a rope. The relationship with his girlfriend is terrifyingly real. The structure of the film is stupendous. And of course, the cinematography and editing are profoundly brilliant. The film was released by National Geographic and was shown on their cable channel.
