Meru: Climbing the BIG Rock

Meru - poster

Mountain climbing is something that fascinates me; this year two movies serve to satisfy that curiosity: Everest, a dramatic presentation of true events, and the documentary Meru.  There’s a lot to like here, and for anyone taken by nature’s majesty — and wrath — I offer a solid recommendation.  But documentaries need to work on a dramatic arc just like non-documentaries, including a strong final stretch which Meru lacks.  Plus, I’m not sure the long shots at night were real.  7/10
