Free Solo

El Capitan in Yosemite
Consider the movies up for Oscars. The key films are in the major film genres like drama, thriller, comedy and romance. The genre of documentary film is never considered one of the big, important genres by the movie industry. But for me, the greatest film in the current Oscar crop is a film nominated for Best Documentary titled Free Solo about climbing the famous El Capitan in Yosemite. On June 3, 2017, Alex Honnold completed the first free solo climb of El Capitan without protective equipment. He ascended the Freerider line in 3 hours and 56 minutes, beginning at 5:32 am PDT and reaching the peak at 9:28 am PDT. The climb was filmed for the 2018 documentary Free SoloIt is opening nationwide in the beginning of February 2019. See the movie on an IMAX screen
