So I saw an ad that Free Solo was playing in a few theatres near me so I dragged my kid with me to go see it. Recap (spoiler alert), Alex Honnold climbs a 3200’ granite wall with no rope. Insane, amazing, and almost unbelievable. A lot of the movie was about the Why and how Alex is wired a bit different than other humans. They even did an MRI on the dude and saw that it took way more to activate his rear response than most people. I’m curious if that is through training or just how he is wired and was raised (which they touch on) Best analogy in the movie was that Free Soloing El Kap was the equivalent athletic achievement of an Olympian training for a sport, starting the competition, and then either getting the Gold medal or dying. Imagine entering a race where you reach perfection and win or are guaranteed to die. Crazy. In some ways though it touched on themes about motorcycle racing for me. Like why people take a risk, even if it’s a low probability of dying, versus not taking it, and sitting at home on the nice safe couch. Here’s the info with the trailer... https://www.nationalgeographic.com/...src=google::cmp=freesolo::add=free_solo_movie I would recommend it.
