Just when you were fed up the whole idea of people climbing Mount Everest like it was a rollercoaster at Magic Mountain, documentarian Anthony Geffen reclaims a significant aspect of the mountain's storied history.
Proving Mallory's route was humanly possible is one thing, and certainly visually spectacular, but Geffen (and Anker) could have dug deeper into whether he actually made it or not, even if they couldn't prove it.
Photography puts you in the action as the cameras follow the intrepid climbers, making me really admire both in front of and behind the camera effort. All aspects of this documentary make it a solid, exciting true story.
