Beautiful adventure movie,
This review is from: Alone in the Wilderness (DVD)
When you first see this movie you will probably think it was shot for the movie theatres but it is really just one guy with a camera documenting his adventure in the wilderness. Little did he know he did such a great job it rivals what is released today in both quality and interest.
You will also be amazed at how easy he makes it seem to live alone in the wilderness, building a cabin and surviving through very cold temperatures, and along the way documenting things such as air and water temperatures, ice depths, animal movements, etc. He also shows how he built things he needed like a spoon and sled, also how he found food and kept warm through the winter.
And the beauty of the area is astounding! No wonder he picked it for a location to live, a nice lake and mountain range, he shows the surrounding area as well, climbing to the highest peaks to film.
The only drawback here is the film is too short, apparently he filmed much more but most was lost due to deterioration of the movie reels. What is left here is a real gem, a must for anyone that loves nature. Great narration caps it off, a real treat for all.

If this DVD is only 60 minutes long, then it does not include all of the existing film. I recorded 2 or 3 times this much off of PBS when they aired it during fundraising campaigns, not even counting the solicitious interruptions.
