The Art of Flight (5)
2011 documentary by Curt Morgan.
This is easily one of the best documentaries I have ever seen.
I do not snowboard, nor do I particularly enjoy winter sports but this movie had me from start to finish. I found it interesting, thrilling, funny and fantastic. What a ride! Beautifully filmed and brilliantly captures the lives of these crazy folk (that's right, I said folk).
While it is all about snowboarding I liked how they showed the friendships and explained the regions as well. I liked how they spoke of it being an adventure thing and not a adrenaline junky thing - something I think that is easier to understand and relate to.
I loved it. I would watch it again at any moment. I honestly cannot think of anything about it that I didn't like.
The music is a bonus as well.
