Thought I would post this up in light of a recent article on Kilian. It is inspiring to say the least:

@chris- I hear you man! I'm tryin to figure out what I'm going to do with mine too

@tom- no prob. Def top three in my collection. I think what's really powerful is the fact that Kilian isn't beating his chest and flaunting his accolades in the movie. He seems to not care he's won every major comp he set out to win. He enjoys what he does and that's what drives him

Amazing trailer.
However, I found the movie itself a bit boring.
There are total 20-30 minutes of visually stunning inspiring footage, which make it worth watching.
The rest - Killian making peanut butter sandwiches and people talking without saying anything valuable. I see where they were going - being in the mountains, partnership, risk, loss and all the drama. But the story line is so weak and unfocused, that you wish it wasn't there at all.

Agreed, however I think this is the first in a series? Almost feel like it's an introduction. Killian def makes an effort to not emphasize the "athlete" side of it but really drives the points you mentioned. It is not a highlite reel and if you're expecting that then it will leave you wanting more. Even so, it is beautifully done.
