  1. OFF_FRAME's rating of the film Over the Limit

    Expertly crafted observational documentary on Russian Olympic gymnast Margarita Mamun and the brutal, crushing pressure to succeed. It's both stomach churning and fascinating to see the levels of torture, bullying, love and hate occurring at this level of competition. 4.5 stars

  2. Jason's rating of the film Over the Limit

    I am always pleased to see documentaries made in the vérité / direct cinema tradition. They would seem to have fallen more or less out of favour, as there is a predominating tendency to bombard audiences w/ information for the purposes of consolidating narratives. OVER THE LIMIT provides us a fascinating experience and gives us space to sit in it, to process. I thought new thoughts about athletics and microfascism.

    this documentary about rhythmic gymnastic turned out to be a very subtle and tragic story on a whole other level. like a brutal initiation and the myth about will and futility
