Topic - The Crash Reel - must see TV

Otis - on 07 Nov 2013
Last night I watched 'The Crash Reel' on TV. It's an astonishing feature length documentary about the life of professional snowboarder Kevin Pearce both before and after the accident that nearly killed him. Exhilarating, moving, heart wrenching, uplifting and tragic.... I was a bit of a mess after watching it if I'm honest!

It's only just been premiered and is winning awards at various film festivals (and might be being shown at Kendal?) but it certainly raised some interesting questions about adventure sports. It's one of the best things I've seen in years and, like the Senna film, you won't need to be interested in the sport to appreciate the film.

If you've got Sky I can't recommend it highly enough - it's on Sky Atlantic Channel a few more times this week.

Mike.
