Great cinematography and fascinating story, but my god this man is out of his mind. I've got a bad feeling that 10 years from now watching this movie will be like watching Grizzly Man.

Easily one of the most intense films I've ever seen. The real life tension is wonderfully built, and the conclusion doesn't disappoint.

It's a great movie. I usually rate 10/10 only a couple movies per year. This is one of them. It's just mind-blowing how dangerous and hard what's he's done. And what's important, it's not one of the things that seems hard for outsiders, but is actually not hard when you have a lot of experience in the subject. This achievement is unbelieveably hard even for the best professional climbers, as you can hear from Alex's friend's words, who is one of the best climbers in the world.
But I wouldn't rate it 10 just for climbing achievement. I was impressed by the Alex's general attitude to life. His passage about happiness in life is remarkable. "Nothing great is achieved when people are happy and cozy. Life is not about happiness, it's about performance." I feel this is so wise and true.
The movie itself is beautifully shot. The cinematography is amazing. It gives a very pleasant feeling when you see the gorgeous views of Yosemite, especially when you live in San Francisco and actually go to Yosemite a few times a year.
The pace of the movie is nice, and it gains more and more suspense over time. When you watch Alex actually climbing El Capitan free solo, you're on the edge of the seat. You see how small the holds are and the feeling of excitement and anxiety overwhelms you (some people were even lightly moaning in the theater). You already know the outcome, but you still can't believe he will make it.
But he does.

Great movie and funny as well. Can be described as Spock climbing a mountain.

Even describing Free Solo with superlatives only is putting it lightly.

It was probably really hard for him to climb with the weight of his balls dragging him down. The feeling of anxiety throughout the film is unbelievable, the emotion, the setting, the cinematography. One of the best documentaries I have ever seen.
