/ NEW REVIEW: E11 - The Movie by Mick Ryan
Was at the premier last night and I have to say that it is an excellent piece of film. This film really belongs in the mainstream as they have been able to capture the human side of Dave and his wife and not produced the type of adrenaline and testosterone vid that quite frankly bores the shite out of me. Hopefully it will be picked up by the BBC or C4 as it really needs to bes seen outside of the climbing community. Medals and Baftas for all involved. A thouroughly engrossing 40 mins.
BTW seeing those falls makes you wince and really worried for the man, even though he is in the same room as you!!
was going to suggest the same - someone really should draw the attention of the mainstream press to it.
It did get a review in the Sunday Telegraph last week, and it's been featured on BBC Scotland, the BBC website, and in the Scotsman. And remember, you can take the movie to the media, but you can't make them do anything with it.
What Scittish winter climbs have you done to make that comment?

Agreed it's an excellent climbing film, and Channel4 could do a lot worse, but Medals and BAFTAs?
As climbing films go, it's good. Dave comes across as an excellent bloke, and there's no doubting his nerve and ability, but..
Sorry, bits of it weren't brilliant, IMHO some problems with sound levels. You turned up the volume to her the conversation, then in crashed the really irritating and amateurish 'BMC weather forecast' bits. Also, much as I liked MC Hastas music, I don't think he added much to it in the main feature, though I loved the pschye edit....
Good as climbing films go.
