Free Solo ★★★½

There are moments where they dip into the more human elements of Honnold’s life and those are more fascinating to me– the climb itself is cool, but feels like a TV special event more than something I’d really care to watch a documentary about– but they don’t tackle them enough. Like, why does he do this, or what in his past has led him here? I know Honnold shows signs of Asperger’s, which might be why it feels like he’s so disconnected from anything other than the climb, but this just left me wanting to know more. Also, it feels like he should absolutely not be in a relationship? And that this woman can do much better? Dump him, Sanni.
