Review this movie
PaulK.Jan 26, 2009One of the best documentaries I've ever seen. It blew me away. If you have an interest, you MUST see this film.
MarkSMay 26, 2009Wow. This is not your typical survival tale at all. Sure, it has all the elements of a great tale--epic odds, unmentionable decisions, and being 100% true. This alone would make it riveting, and that's where most documentaries stop. But not this one. What haunts you. are the the survivors' amazing ability to articulate exactly what they felt, their inclusion of perfect morsels of detail, and the philosophical and spiritual insights that they share, are what make this story stand out. The cannibalism might draw you in, but that's not what you'll leave with at all. How often does a documentary teach you something about yourself?… Expand
JayW.Nov 15, 2008Excellent blend of archival footage, interviews and stunning recreations. Long, but worth it.
MINTONmediaNov 11, 2008Tremendously moving documentary, stirkingly similar in theme, location and gruling impact to 2004's memorable British mountain-climbing doc, TOUCHING THE VOID.
