This kid is good!! Great rock climbing doc! Especially if you like free climbing. David Lama is a name to watch, for sure. Eventually his name will become legend. Bridwell comes across as a curmudgeonly has-been -- mad at the world, and still a legend in his own mind. He was a legend, back in the day. But c'mon. Admit that these up and comers have chops. I don't know anything about David Lama other than what was portrayed in this film, so I can't say if he's "tainted" (as another reviewer wrote), or not. I do think Lama learned something in his attempts at scaling Cerro del Torre. Mainly that climbing in a gym and climbing a real rock tower takes a combination of skills. The kid is young. I expect to see more firsts from him.
The film itself was very well done. Amusing in parts, combined with breathtaking scenery and amazing shots from the helo. Then you really got the sense of how isolated and lonely Patagonia is (windy too!). This was a fun watch.
