Duncan Gray's rating of the film Free Solo

A doc with as much visual scale as anything fictional: what starts out feeling like a TV special ends up awe-inspiring and vertigo-inducing. For this year's Oscar race, I prefer Minding the Gap, whose ordinary people are more compelling than Free Solo's extraordinary one. But Free Solo does something most fiction films ache for: keeping the audience on the edge, even when they know the good guy will win.
