We’re almost done with the Oscars stuff, don’t worry.
At this year’s event, Green Book walked away with the biggest honour of all, even though the movie has been widely panned for months now.
Not like the Academy Awards to be tone deaf, is it?
Now let’s focus on an often unheralded category, Best Documentary Feature, and this year’s winner, Free Solo.
If you’re afraid of heights, then this probably isn’t for you:
From award-winning documentary filmmaker E. Chai Vasarhelyi and world-renowned photographer and mountaineer Jimmy Chin, comes FREE SOLO, a stunning, intimate and unflinching portrait of free soloist climber Alex Honnold, as he prepares to achieve his lifelong dream: climbing the face of the world’s most famous rock… the 3,200ft El Capitan in Yosemite National Park… without a rope.
The last time we mentioned the fabled ‘El Capitan’, we covered how two chaps had conquered the speed climbing record.
Impressive, but they had ropes to help them, which is a luxury that Alex shuns.
That taste is your heart in your throat.
Let’s see the exact moment that Free Solo won the Oscar, handed over by man-mountain Jason Momoa:
I would have loved to hear from Alex himself up on that stage, but perhaps big crowds aren’t his thing.
You can read a superb interview with Alex here.
Congrats to all involved, although there’s a long way to go until anyone can rival the masterpiece that is Searching for Sugar Man.
