/ Into Thin Air movie (the dramatisation of Krakauer's book)
Although it's unfortunate that in the effort to tell a sensationalist story Krakauer found it necessary to demonise Anatoli Boukreev who, whilst probably having made errors, was far nearer hero than villain in what unfolded.
That aspect left a really bad taste in my mouth when I read it. I haven't read anything by Krakauer since.
Boukreev's book is well worth reading too. They don't cancel each other out, they're both more or less essential reading if you're interested in that story.
And this thread repeats itself, almost verbatim, just as many times :-)
