Touching the Void

This gut-wrenching docudrama recounts the harrowing tale of two mountain climbers who stumbled into an escalating chain of disasters high atop a storm-locked peak in the Andes. That these two men survived is astonishing, and the film works well as a testament to the sheer stupid tenacity of human life. If you're afraid of heights, this one won't do much to alleviate the fear. Like a well-made horror movie, this one is both scary and mesmerizing. 106 minutes
