    The Dawn Wall

    ★★★★

    I really enjoyed this doc, it's an engaging and emotional watch. And honestly just as enjoyable as Free Solo. I enjoyed both films, if I dare say. This one focuses a bit more on the psychological aspect, and I like the creative filmmaking choices that keep it interesting (nice montages and storytelling).

    Holllllyyyyyy shittttttt Us totally RULES! Omfg! This is some seriously dark, Twilight Zone-esque, horror mindfuckery. Damnnnn, Jordan Peele you mad scientist of cinema. This film is going to be analyzed & pulled apart & discussed for a long, long time. I honestly need to see it again right away, there's so much to think about that will hopefully come together on a second viewing. And I mean that in a good way.

    It's not perfect, and there's a few bumps in the…
