Emotional and enduring, 29 Jan. 2014
I had the opportunity to see The Great White Silence restoration by the BFI which I thought was well done and so I was really looking forward to see The Epic of Everest. The story of Mallory and Irvine always impressed me. Comparing the two, The Epic of Everest has a different energy, being more esoteric in way with beautiful time-lapses and a slow-paced energy, it is a completely different approach but nevertheless beautiful.
I saw the previous review so I'm compelled to give you a different opinion. I think Simon Fisher Turner's music is the embodiment of that energy that comes from the film, a modern and timeless way to channel the true emotions embedded in it, the optimism, the hesitation and ultimately the spectre of death.
