In January, 2015, American rock climbers Tommy Caldwell and Kevin Jorgeson captivated the world with their effort to climb the Dawn Wall, a seemingly impossible 3,000 foot rock face in Yosemite National Park, California. The pair lived on the sheer vertical cliff for weeks, igniting a frenzy of global media attention. But for Tommy Caldwell, the Dawn Wall was much more than just a climb. It was the culmination of a lifetime defined by overcoming obstacles. At the age of 22, the climbing prodigy was taken hostage by rebels in Kyrgyzstan. Shortly after, he lost his index finger in an accident, but resolved to come back stronger. When his marriage fell apart, he escaped the pain by fixating on the extraordinary goal of free climbing the Dawn Wall. Blurring the line between dedication and obsession, Caldwell and his partner Jorgeson spend six years meticulously plotting and practicing their route. On the final attempt, with the world watching, Caldwell is faced with a moment of truth. Should he abandon his partner to fulfill his ultimate dream, or risk his own success for the sake of their friendship?

I watched the film with a group of friends and it was so incredible. It is the most informative film I have ever seen, and it will leave you inspired to do something about the fight for equality. The documentary isn't 100% factual, but I would still recommend it as a good one to watch.

If you have ever been to a college or university, you know that the competition between athletes is intense. This documentary is like a cross between the sport of college and the documentary "Basketball Diaries" by Scott Elliott. It follows two athletes from the University of Georgia (Bill Watts and Chad "Peyton" Smith) as they go through the football season. The documentary is very interesting. One thing I noticed is that Watts and Smith are very proud of their accomplishments. However, we don't get any insight on why they want to be the best. For example, we only see Watts and Smith's personalities in the first half of the film. We don't get to know any of their past lives or other accomplishments. This makes the film seem more like a "history of the game" than a "sports documentary". I think the biggest issue with this film is that the athletes are not given any depth. It's like watching them talk about their "game". This can be a good thing in a documentary, but it can also be a bad thing. It doesn't show the athletes as individuals, but rather as a team. That said, this documentary is an interesting look at college football and how they train and perform during the season.

The documentary is good. I found it to be interesting and informative. It does a good job of covering all aspects of the film. The story is about the making of the first Olympic Winter Games. The whole documentary is worth seeing and if you haven't seen the documentary, I would recommend it. The fact that it was made by and for the Olympic Committee is another positive aspect. I have to say that I am a bit disappointed that the documentary did not touch on the things that were cut out of the final version. For example, a whole section of the documentary would have focused on the building of the ice rink. It would have shown how the building of the rink was done, and that is the most important part of the documentary.

As a cyclist, I'm aware of how this film was made and how well it was made. It was very accurate in depicting the challenges of being a mountain biker. I love this film, because it shows that not all cyclists are alike, and there are differences too. It also shows that mountain bikers are a very diverse group of people, with many different backgrounds and beliefs. It also shows how people are willing to overlook these differences, but when it comes down to it, we all have some flaws, and it's easy to overlook them. Finally, it's a great film to see when you want to see something more then just a ride, or when you want to see the views of a mountain bike in action. I'd give this film an 8.5/10. A must see for mountain bikers.

The documentary was very well done, although there were some factual errors and the director did not put in enough emphasis on how athletes have used the decline in their skills to make money. However, the film was very entertaining and showed the rise and fall of some of the most successful sportsmen in the world. It was also interesting to see how some of these athletes had been brought up by a single mother. I am not a pro athlete and only became a competitive cyclist and triathlete due to the fact that I wanted to compete in the Olympics. However, when I saw that most of these athletes were made millionaires and were living lavishly, it made me want to give it a shot. The athletes featured in the film were interesting to see because they all had a story to tell and because they made it big on the world stage. You also see how a couple of the athletes had had children to support them. Some athletes also had serious health issues and it was interesting to see how they dealt with it. One athlete (Kristoffersen) became a great husband, father and husband. He even married again after his first marriage was so bad that he had to abandon his job in order to support his family. I also enjoyed the relationship between the filmmakers and the athletes. The film also provided some interesting insight into why the athletes are so successful. For example, I saw that the athletes at the 1991 Worlds had started their careers in Yugoslavia and were doing well in their countries. They became rich playing the sport that they loved and earning money in the process. I think this documentary would be a good one to show to a sports major. I would also recommend the DVD to any sport majors or any athlete who is considering pursuing a career in sports.

I am not a skier. I'm not a runner. I'm not a skier fan. But I do like to be in control of my own destiny. So I saw this film as a chance to take control of my own destiny. It was a wonderful opportunity. I really enjoyed this film. I was amazed at the scenery and the skiing. It was a great time. I am not going to give anything away. Just watch this film and enjoy it. It is a film that you should watch if you enjoy the outdoors. It is a must see.

I recently watched "The Dawn Wall" at a screening and I'm glad that I did. It's a great film. The way the film is put together is a good one and it shows the difficulty in moving ahead in life when you're having to leave your culture for something new. It's also an interesting look at the British tennis scene from the 1980's when Chris Evert was having an incredible run of success. His talent was unmatched and he was the dominant force at Wimbledon in the 1980's. It was like a silent movie of sorts where it wasn't your typical tennis film. The movie takes a look at his rise up the Wimbledon pecking order and the drama surrounding it. There are several interviews with former players, one of which was with Christopher Evert himself. It's fascinating to see Evert talk about his family life and the things he'd like to change. It's also fascinating to see the beauty of the Wimbledon grounds as well as how beautiful Wimbledon is. It's a great look at the people in the sport and the history of the sport. I think it's a great documentary on the Wimbledon, the past, the present and the future. It's a fantastic film and I'm glad I saw it. This is the kind of film that's so good that it deserves to be on the short list for Best Documentary in the 2017 Academy Awards.

This is a documentary about the life of the greatest American gymnast of all time. I was a gymnast in high school and I have a fondness for the sport. I was lucky enough to see the movie at a screening in my home town. The film is presented in a manner that is not sensational, but rather an insightful look at a fascinating subject. I was surprised by how much I liked the film. The documentary does not sugarcoat the life of the gymnast, but rather gives a clear picture of the struggles of the athlete. The film does not glorify the gymnast, but rather shows the difficulty and determination that is needed to make the sport as great as it is. I also enjoyed the documentary because it gives the viewer a good idea of what the life of an athlete is like. In the film, the athletes are portrayed as people, not simply as sports stars. This film is not for the squeamish. There are a few scenes of violence, but there is no graphic violence. The sport itself is not shown to be particularly violent, but rather the extreme violence. It is not shown to be sexy or a source of pleasure. It is shown as a sport that is brutal and grueling. This is what the sport is. The athletes are shown as people and not as sports stars. This is a film about the life of a gymnast, not about the sport itself.

I'm an American who has never been to the Olympics, but I can say this: it's great. There are some people who want to make this a bad movie, but I think that's the only way it can be. It's a great movie, and it's well-acted. I think the fact that it's a documentary is a plus. You can't really get into the film because of that. If you want to see a great documentary about the Olympics, I recommend "Inside the Games: The Untold Story of the Summer Olympics." That's a great documentary and it's also great to see what the Olympics are like. The other documentary that I liked is "The Thin Blue Line." It's a good movie, but it's a little too long. I would recommend "The Dawn Wall" over "The Thin Blue Line" because "The Dawn Wall" is more interesting. I think "The Dawn Wall" is a good movie and I would recommend it.

On the early morning of November 28, 1972, Jackie Robinson broke baseball's color barrier by playing for the Brooklyn Dodgers, beating out fellow African-American player Lou Gehrig in the famous "Battle of the Sexes." The film covers the Robinson story, his rise to fame, and his actions during the Dodgers' first pennant run. It also features footage of baseball players of all backgrounds and sports. But, it is mostly the everyday life of Robinson's on-field contemporaries, many of whom did not know Robinson. The film features interviews with Robinson's ex-wife (Nicole Kidman), his teammates, coaches, and coaches, and his old teammates. It also features numerous sports commentators, who discuss baseball, race, and the American Dream. This is a truly remarkable film, and should be viewed by anyone who believes that baseball is an institution. In some ways, it's even more powerful than the true story of Jackie Robinson.

If you like football or you love the game, the film will be for you. If you don't, it will be more of a tour de force, if you're a coach or even if you're not, you'll have fun with it. Football is more than a game, it's a passion. And this documentary is a window into that. By focusing on the actual training of the players, it's hard not to find yourself being part of the action. For fans of the game, it's fascinating to see how the highs and lows of the game are treated by the participants. The players know how to handle the cameras. Some of the players are gifted athletes, and there are scenes of their full effort. It's a shame that they're not given a larger role in the film. The players don't have an easy time explaining how it feels to be an athlete, or how they cope with the stresses of football. But they do come across as people, and this makes it easy to root for them. And it's a reminder that coaches and parents have a big part in the lives of their children.

This documentary is a little different than most. It's not about the baseball stars, it's about the growing sport of skiing. As a kid, I was a big fan of ski jumping and thought it was just a great sport. I didn't know anything about the sport before I watched this movie. It really made me appreciate the sport and its players. It really shows the dedication and hard work these people put into their sport. I think it's a great way to introduce people to the sport and show them what the sport is really about.

I had not heard much about the Olympic Torch before seeing this documentary, and the first thing that stood out to me about it was the character of the Torch team. I was captivated by the team members, who were all amazing people who went above and beyond to be able to see the Olympic Torch pass through their town. It was heartwarming to see the passion and dedication that the team put into making the torch pass through their town. They are all heroes and should be honored for their bravery and bravery to keep this tradition alive. The story of the torch team is great and I recommend this documentary to everyone, because it really tells the story of the Olympic Torch as it is passed through our country.

Sitting in a theater watching a documentary like this is like watching a piece of art: fascinating and difficult to describe. The time for art is now, and this film could become a classic. Of course, it would be difficult to fit this incredible film into a documentary. It would have to be both so fascinating to the audience, and also be so profound that it could not be represented in a documentary. Because the film's value lies in its evocative and enlightening nature, the documentary should take up at least ten times more time than the short film does. The film simply did not do this, or at least it did not try. The actors and directors were so good at sharing their art with us, that I felt like the audience was trying to catch up to the film. This made the film that much more enjoyable. I really wish I had seen this film in a theater. The filmmakers seemed so concerned with communicating their message, that it was difficult to hear the subtitles of the actors' voices. This added to the difficulty of getting the most out of this piece of art. So, if you are able to see this film in a theater, it will be a great experience. If you cannot, it will still be a great experience.

I've never been a sports fan but I've always been intrigued by the sport of track & field. I've watched some of the films on the History Channel and thought that this movie is much better than the History Channel. It was very well done. As a professional athlete myself I thought that it was great to see real people get into the situation. The movie was extremely entertaining. The use of color in the movie was great. I liked the way the movie was filmed. The movie is about a team that was struggling to win and the sacrifices that were made to get to that point. I thought the editing was done very well. The movie was very well shot and the actors were good. The music was very good. I think that the movies was great because it was informative. I really like that the movie wasn't super Hollywood like most movies. It was very real.

The story is told in a very factual way. The athletes who are interviewed talk about the events and their experiences, which is a must. In my opinion, it is a must watch. This is the best movie I have seen in a while. It is very informative and entertaining.

What a great documentary. I've never watched a documentary so thoroughly and thought it was brilliant. The story is about a few people that got a chance to go to the Olympics in the 80's and were involved in the biggest sport in the world. It is a story of how they tried to make it to the Olympics and how they got there. I was never really interested in the story or the Olympics but this documentary changed my mind. I was in awe of how they got there and how they went about it. They had a hard time, they had to overcome great odds, but they did it. This is a story that should be told and the people that were involved in the Olympics should be given the respect they deserve.

I found this movie to be very entertaining. I thought it was well done and informative. I thought the actors were very good. It also gave an idea of how hard it is to get a license to ski. I have been interested in learning more about the issues facing the great mountain skiers of the world. I think this movie was very well done. I am glad I found it on Netflix. It was very informative and entertaining. I would definitely recommend it to anyone.

This is a great documentary. You can feel what the pioneers are feeling. It's very interesting to see how the first step was made for the Olympic games in Los Angeles in 1932. It's amazing how the film starts out with a short interview with the organizers of the 1932 Olympics and how they are slowly turning around the Olympic torch to be used for the 1932 games. The film ends with a number of athletes from all over the world competing at the 1932 Olympics. It's quite amazing how they're all preparing for the Games and how they all came together to be one of the first Olympic Games. The documentary covers the real story of the Olympic games, including the politics and everything else that went along with the event. This is a great movie to watch. I would highly recommend it to anybody.

This is a very interesting documentary about the music that is played at the Olympics. The documentary follows the work of musician Patrice Leconte, who specializes in producing, editing and scoring the music. In one of the interviews, Leconte talks about how he was inspired to create his own style of music. The documentary also features an interview with Hans Zimmer, who plays the main composer of the Olympic music. Zimmer talks about the challenge he faced in recording the music for the games. He talks about the difficult decision to change the music to make it more "international" and more "comedy". He also talks about the challenges he faced in the recording process, in order to get the desired sound. Also in this interview, Zimmer mentions that he recorded music for "The Olympics" for one reason: to get paid. Zimmer also talks about the music being used in the commercials, which is a huge issue for music. The music is used for commercial breaks, which means the music isn't needed during the actual games. Zimmer's concern is that the music will be used in a similar way in the future. Zimmer is also concerned about how the music would be used in the Olympics, in comparison to what is happening with the music in the US. Zimmer mentions how he wanted to avoid commercialism and that he wanted to give the music an "authentic" feel. Zimmer also mentions that he is a music critic and that he doesn't want to criticise any particular country. Zimmer also talks about how he would like to see the music used more in the commercials, but he knows that people will think he is talking about the Olympics. Zimmer also mentions that he would like to see the music used more in the commercials, but he knows that people will think he is talking about the Olympics.

I saw this movie at the recent premier in Dallas, Texas. It's an interesting film and I was not disappointed. I was curious about the motivations behind the sport of rowing. I was a bit disappointed with the ending. I was hoping that the sport of rowing would be able to save the world from poverty. Instead, it's just a little more of what we already know. The movie was not very well done, but I think it was done in the right way. I would recommend it to anyone who wants to learn more about the sport of rowing.

This is a very good documentary about the world of cycling. The documentary is very well done, the footage is very good and it's very interesting to see how things have changed over the years. It's a great insight into cycling. It's interesting to see the difference in the way the world views cycling from the 1970s to the present day. I found the documentary very interesting, the film is a little slow at times but it's well worth it. I recommend this film to anyone who is interested in cycling, the documentary is well worth watching.

The Dawn Wall is a documentary film that follows the progress of a high school wrestling team from their start to the championship match. The film features interviews with the wrestlers, coaches, and referees. The film is told in a "blended" format, with several different viewpoints, including a female referee and the school principal. The film is divided into three parts, with each section lasting roughly 45 minutes. The first part is an introduction to the wrestlers, and the second part is an interview with the wrestling coach. The third part is the match itself, with interviews with the wrestlers and the referees. While I enjoyed the first and second parts, I did not enjoy the third part. It was too long and I didn't get a chance to see enough of the wrestlers. Overall, I would recommend this film to anyone who enjoys documentaries, and the wrestlers. However, I would not recommend it to anyone who is a wrestling fan. Grade B

In 1971, Jackie Robinson became the first black man to play in a major league baseball team in Brooklyn, New York. The rest, as they say, is history. It was a time when black players in major league baseball were very few, and the one Jackie Robinson played for was not a big league team. The New York Yankees had only one black player, Bobby Bonds. The Brooklyn Dodgers had no black players. This documentary looks at the impact that Jackie Robinson had on the sport of baseball. It's an informative look at how the sport of baseball changed and changed, how Jackie Robinson changed the game, and how the game changed the sport. It's a very fascinating look at how a sport can change in a single season. This is a good movie, and a very good look at baseball. It's not just about baseball, it's about the sport itself.
