Alex Honnold (aged 32 on the day in question, 3 June 2017) climbs the sheer face of El Capitan, a ravishing and forbidding peak in Yosemite National Park in California. It is nearly 3,000 feet in height, awesome to behold, and impossible to contemplate as something you or I might try, or climb.

Quite possibly the most nerve-racking film of the year, this expertly edited, breathtakingly shot look at free climber Alex Honnold’s attempt to summit the face of Yosemite’s imposing El Capitan rock formation without any ropes or equipment is more than just a well-made sports doc.

  • HKFanatic's rating of the film Free Solo

    A riveting documentary and great human interest story, "Free Solo" left me white-knuckled for much of its duration. Armchair critics can debate whether Alex Honnold's actions are reckless or foolhardy; to me, his endeavor represents one of the most impressive human achievements during my lifetime. Even so, the film endeared him to me enough that I can't help but hope Alex keeps his feet on the ground for awhile.

  • Andhika Eka Buana's rating of the film Free Solo

    Can you believe in a year where a Hollywood film in which its megastar did his own stunt of jumping through building and piloting a helicopter, there's also a documentary about a man who's willing to climb Yosemite without a single safety ropes. 2018's theme is surely "MEN ARE CRAZY".

  • Huey McEvoy's rating of the film Free Solo

    Yes, the final section is unbearably thrilling, and yes the cinematography is vertiginously beautiful, but what separates the film from a million GoPro videos on YouTube is the filmmakers' attempt to get under the skin of a certain mindset. The answers presented here - a dash of genetic neurology with a splash of parental influence - are fascinating. (4.5)

  • 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.

  • HenriqueA's rating of the film Free Solo

    Shit. I never imagined I would like a mountain climbing documentary so much. First, you have Alex, who is really not that engaging, he's like a robot sometimes, but he's nonetheless a very interesting character and his mental and physical strength are out of this world. And then you have El Cap, which is just as frightening and sobering a supporting player as you can get in your film.

  • Filipe F. Coutinho's rating of the film Free Solo

    One the most impressive things I’ve ever witnessed in a movie theater. Free Solo shows that soloing is for the very select few, as it requires a very particular mindset and a lifetime of preparation, but it does teach us something about fear and how and why to confront it, only to redefine in many ways the limits of what human beings can achieve.

  • Endless Eye's rating of the film Free Solo

    Unlike anything you or I will ever attempt - and captured fantastically by Vasarhelyi's and Chin's world class team - Free Solo is a bone fide doc thrill ride that will have you on the edge of your seat for half of the movie.

  • msmichel's rating of the film Free Solo

    This documentary on free solo climber Alex Honnold is often quite awe inspiring but just as often has you thinking 'just how crazy and reckless is this guy'. This is the latest doc from the makers of 'Meru' and plays more like a suspense film throughout than a traditional documentary. Incredibly well shot feature that often puts you directly on El Capitan where each fingerhold and toehold could spell life or death.
