Only seen a few films so far. Best ones by far...

Run the Roof...about 2 people plus one loony running in a country I cant spell.

Transcontinental Race....a 4061k cycle race across Europe.  Mad.

Both really good films!

I watched the Edwin Drummond film last night which I thought was really excellent. It is quite abstract and quirky but that reflects the subject. It reminded me how good his writing was. Looking forward to the Boardman/Tasker session later this evening.

Great thread. 

I've throughly enjoyed it all so far. Two highlights for me so far are:

Becoming a Guide

(following two young aspirant guides in Europe) 

Pretty Strong 

(Following some top female climbers in various disciplines)

I really enjoyed ed the Ed Drummond film, it was a little different, and certainly not what I was expecting. Allthough I think you have to be in to you're climbing history to get the most out of it, my wife was a little bemused! I'm also still freaked out from a topless Robbie Phillip's hanging from a climbing frame staring deep into my soul...

Favourite so far is As free as can be in climb 2, genuinely hart heart warming, I may have even shed a little tear.

Is this from a film? Or just a traumatic memory?

I think it was from the film but perhaps I dreamt it? I think all the abstract Drummond poetry has addled my simple brains.
