The Dawn Wall
Documentary • NR • 2017 • 1 hr 41 min
One of the best sports documentaries you will ever watch. Climbing deserves more coverage and respect. This doc does both exceptionally well
An incredible story that brought me to tears. Very inspirational
Best climbing doc I’ve ever seen. Well-paced, inspiring, exciting. I prefer this to Free Solo as an overall film.
Such an impressive feat to see what these rock climbers are capable of. Beautiful scenery that’s captured in this.
Really great to watch such a impressive story of self-superation, loved it!!
Amazing doc movie about a breaking achievement. Even if you don't know anything about climbing it is worth watching.
Incredible story. I was captivated from the very beginning. Very exciting. Rock climbing is wild. Give it a try.
No Free Solo, but is beautifully shot at times, and gives the amazing achievements of its subjects the attention they deserve.
This documentary is extremely moving and inspirational. Incredible just how strong someone's willpower can be.
An amazing documentary that keeps you on the edge of your seat the whole time
