I actually liked the movie for the most part, cool ideas, but a little too much time spent in the editing room. Was happy to see some of the other north face team members doing their thing (the kayak scene was pretty damn awesome). Would have loved to have seen more of some of the other athletes and cut about 30 minutes of slow motion dradle spinning; and who the hell thought that half pipe scene was a good idea? I would have gladly spent that time watching Conrad Anker climb cool stuff.....otherwise I think it was an interesting way to do a ski porn. Hopefully other movies will take note and just tone it down a bit.

As some one who is studying some mythology in grad school (Anchorage) I appreciated what they were going for but thought that some moments were too much (like the half pipe scene). Also a little nod to Campbell would have been appropriate. They took the subtitles from Hero of a Thousand Faces[i][/i] without blinking.The ending was nice though. I like that "All I Want" song.

watched it the other day. It had parts i liked and parts that were just meh. The halfpipe was completely meh.

Also, why does every ski/snowboard film need to have a section in whistler where they are riding a massive jump into the sunset. Seriously. do something else.

Some of the locations were rad and im more for the watch the whole line rather than the OMG CAB 27 YO shit. If i can see the whole line its kind of more beneficial for me to see how riders approach terrain and how they deal with slough etc.

So it's up on Netflix now; and I'm kinda late to the party.

DCP segment was fantastic.

Wanted to see more Conrad Anker.

Xavier's the man.

Cinematography is in the running for the best I've ever seen. . . ever.
. . . Cinematic effects were not good enough to overcome the complete lack of anything that makes me want to continue watching (especially during those interludes). I had to turn it off after an hour and conclude it the next night.

I clearly didn't do enough drugs back in the day to enjoy this as best could.

Winter's coming :D
