Venice 2015: 'Everest' Review

This year's Venice Film Festival kicked off with Everest, based on the true story of a group of mountain climbers who met with disaster in 1996 on the titular mountain, leading to several deaths. The biggest obstacle a movie like this faces is convincing me that the people who go on such extreme adventures are not, in fact, totally crazy. Everest fails in this regard, and a few others. My review is up at Screen International.
