I don’t spend much time in front of the TV or at the Movie Theater as to me they are mostly hypnotic instruments aimed at the dumbing down of humanity and I choose to remain awake rather than asleep. Certainly there is great programing out there if you take the time to look for it but filtering out all the noise takes time and effort. When I do choose to partake its programing that is centered around the arts, culture, science and nature that I am most likely to gravitate toward. When I do find a series or a motion picture that really grabs me I feel an obligation to give back and reward such great programing by sharing it with others so that they too may benefit from the experience. Mountain is one such picture that deserves such attention and I would encourage you to have a view when you get a chance.
Director by Jennifer Peedom and starring Willem Dafoe, and Renan Ozturk Mountain is “A vertiginous juxtaposition of image and music that explores the powerful force that mountains hold over our imaginations. From Tibet to Australia, Alaska to Norway armed with drones, Go-Pros and helicopters, the filmmakers have fashioned an astonishing symphony of mountaineers, ice climbers, free soloists, heli-skiers, snowboarders, wingsuiters and parachuting mountain bikers.”
This film really gets your blood flowing through the use of incredible imagery coupled by a dynamic soundtrack. Willem Dafoe’s raspy, somewhat somber voice carries you through an audio visual masterpiece that in many ways is more like a theme park ride than a motion picture. You can find Mountain on Amazon Prime Video.
