This represents a new level in adventure film-making!
After watching this film for the first time, I have just two things to say - How did they get those amazing shots? and who in their right mind would want to go out and get those shots? I'll admit going into this film I thought it was going to be just another mountaineering/'vertical limit-type' film, but I was wrong and enjoyed every second of it. Not only does this film take you along side Erik Weihenmayer's amazing attempt on the tallest mountain in the world, it also gives you the best sense of 'being there' out of any other film made about Mount Everest. Farther Than the Eye Can See is the perfect fusion of a climbing film and great storytelling. If you haven't seen this film - go out and watch it!!! You will be inspired.
