Free Solo is a stunning, intimate and unflinching portrait of the free soloist climber Alex Honnold, as he prepares to achieve his lifelong dream: climbing the face of the world’s most famous rock…the 3,000ft El Capitan in Yosemite National Park…without a rope.
“Both intimate and expansive, ‘Free Solo’ is a documentary beautifully calculated to literally take your breath away. And it does.” – Kenneth Turan, LOS ANGELES TIMES
“In the end, the answer may be only slightly deeper than “because it’s there”, but for 100 nerve-racking minutes, ‘Free Solo’ brings us one man’s suicidal quest with sympathy, grace, and a ton of adrenalin.” – Chris Nashawaty, ENTERTAINMENT WEEKLY
“To watch Honnold think through each ledge of his climbs can stop the heart; to watch him navigate human emotion might melt it.” – Alan Scherstuhl, L.A. Weekly
