Obscure hobby provides a fascinating character study.

This is a surprisingly engrossing film. The central figures in the film, Dean Bulloch and Karl Munford, are a likable, engaging pair (think Penn and Teller), who draw us into their little corner of the West, Cedar City, UT, and into their particular obsession--rock crawling--driving specially modified off-road vehicles over rocky hills, outcrops and boulders.

Bulloch, the driver, has a long history of motor competition, including success at motorcycle drag racing. Munford, the quiet one, is the spotter during competitions, pointing out routes, moving rocks for traction and pulling on the vehicle to keep it from flipping.

The filmmaker takes us through several competitions, some vehicle repair, and ends the film at the 2004 rock crawling championship in Salt Lake City, called SuperCrawl III.

The men are competitive, but never arrogant. No posturing. Pretty to look at in HD. Look for it on Discovery's HD Theater.
