Free Solo ★★★★★

One of the finest performances you’ll see this year, perhaps any year. Stone cold superhero. I love how the film crew become characters in the film, and the dilemma they face about potentially filming their friend die — or worse, inadvertently causing his death — is discussed in some depth. But the film is all Honnold’s; his sense of drive to achieve the unthinkable, his bluntness regarding the stakes, and his remarkable preparation and sustained focus in the moment are nothing less than superhuman.
