that is going to be hard to watch knowing the ultimate outcome.  I feel like I would be screaming and crying in between moments of pure joy.

No kidding, bring the tissues in case it's "dusty" in the theatre...

I know he did stuff that was unfathomable to me and now I guess there is a movie, but Marc will live on in my mind as cheamclimber, this goofy kid with a lot of enthusiasm.

I plan to see it on the big screen!  MA was big inspiration to me over the years, even though I never met him in person. 

Although the film is probably something he would've probably cringed at seeing, I am glad that we can all get a better sense of who he was as a person and climber.

My personal favorite MA TR on this site:

I always loved this trailer and hoped a longer film would emerge.

Never met MA, but it was easy to see he was an original, someone with vision, talent, and drive, an alpine artist, using his body to paint exoerience on the canvas of nature.

Marc's passing sparked one of the most thoughtful threads I've seen on cc.com. It's full of deeply personal and thoughtful posts from many of the luminaries in our community.

Just watched this at theater. It was done very well and climbing scenes are awesome. Also the RunOut Podcast had a good interview with the filmmaker. Marc was so young...

Thought the film was great! Some of the climbing was absolutely incredible. Marc mentions in the film how he started alpine climbing in jeans and polo t-shirts as in the Cheam peak TR above.

just saw Jason posted the Cheam TR a few months ago

Yes, this is one of the best climbing films I've ever seen. Amazing climbing footage. Excellent interviews and narrations. Masterful story telling. Significant comments from many luminaries of climbing. Enough space to absorb all of it.
