Amazing true story told effectively. Well done!
This is an upliftiing story and it is TRUE! This story is told beautifully with many layers but I the end the best of humanity shows through!
The result is an extremely thorough documentation of events, and a literal one. The Rescue is not so much a film as it is a record.
The filmmakers — superbly incorporating a combination of stunning archival footage (much of it previously unseen), dramatic reenactments and interviews with the principal figures — present the harrowing tale in riveting nail-biting fashion, leavened by welcome doses of mordant humor from the incredibly brave volunteers.
Free Solo wife and husband directors Elizabeth Chai Vasarhelyi and Jimmy Chin are forensic in the detail they provide and the range of testimonies they have assembled; the result is a tense, absorbing documentary with a strong emotional charge.
