The other weekend, we watched 4 movies, more-or-less in a row. We watched Room and Creed, both of which I liked – despite the fair amount of rape in Room, and that Creed caused us to revisit one of our biggest marital disagreements. (In a nutshell: how rigged is fighting? Me: “All of it”; Q: “You are out of your mind.”)
Room and Creed are both good movies. I’d recommend either. But for us, it was the documentaries that really shone. There was suspense and action in Creed, sure – but it was nothing like the suspense and action in Meru.
I cringed, I stared with my mouth agape, I laughed: Meru was awesome, in the truest sense of the word. Even Q was amazed.
Meru follows three rock climbers in their attempts to summit the elusive Meru peak, in the Himalayas, over a period of several years.
Here’s another still, so you can see what we’re dealing with:
So basically, super-cool. Highly recommend.
Shoutout to Cupcakes and Cashmere, who mentioned the film.
