While it desperately wants to crossover to a mainstream audience, it is what it is: a movie for skiers.
September 26, 2008
Steep is more promo-reel than documentary.
September 26, 2008
Catch this on an IMAX screen if you're interested, but for a great movie about mountain-based triumphs of the human spirit check out the inspirational Blindsight instead.
September 26, 2008
In this handsomely shot documentary about extreme skiing, thrill-seeking devotees boast of their exploits, but shed no light on what drives them to risk their lives.
September 26, 2008
It gets a little wearing, hanging out with these lions, but there's no denying the beauty of the landscape, with its fluttering avalanches, plumes of powder and vertiginous, zigzagging descents.
September 26, 2008
Remarkably, given the extraordinary descents captured on film and despite the less than subtle stirring score, the film is ultimately lacking in any real excitement.
September 26, 2008
Amazing imagery of remarkable achievements and a chronicle of the sport but one that could have dug a little deeper into the psychology of the extreme skiers.
September 26, 2008
If you're a fan of 'extreme skiing' (ie. hurling yourself down terrifyingly steep terrain with sticks on your feet), this film is your Holy Grail.
March 7, 2008
There's awe-inspiringly beautiful footage in Steep and awe-inspiringly stupid talk.
March 7, 2008
A tedious movie about excitement.
February 29, 2008
It's nearly impossible to walk away without a new motivation to find what can make you feel the way these characters do.
February 27, 2008
As enchanting as all this alpine footage can be, as a movie, Steep is flat.
February 22, 2008
The tediousness becomes a little too palpable and the film's first half is frankly dull, despite some fine acting from Depardieu and Balibar.
February 21, 2008
Sometimes it takes escaping death to feel alive -- especially if we have survived a cancer scare, a road accident or some other potentially fatal encounter. But Steep is about those who actively seek that dance with danger.
February 15, 2008
Leaves us with images that aren't easily forgotten and a grudging respect for people who blaze new trails in search of a thrill.
