Based on actual events, a group of mountain climbing expeditions on Mt. Everest in 1996 were met with tragic results in the midst of a massive snow storm; despite the deadly conditions, some lived to tell the tale, this is their story. Everest An ensemble piece starring Jason Clarke, Jake Gyllenhaal, Josh Brolin, Keira Knightley, Robin Wright, Emily Watson, and Martin Henderson, this audio visual barrage and overload is Directed by Baltasar Korm├íkur shot with impossible and vertigo inducing camera work by Salvatore Totino. While not a traditional narrative story the film hits its stride as an experience and a transport to one of the harshest natural environments on the planet, a place where few will ever truly go. Somber in totality, there are moments of happiness and hope, but let’s not fool anyone, this is not the feel good hit of the year but rather a humbling look to nature’s power and our insignificance in the greater scheme of things. Worth seeing on IMAX 3D for the maximum effect, Everest is rated PG-13.
