Cutting Edge: The Human Spider
15 April 2008 | by (United Kingdom) – See all my reviews

I saw the advert for this documentary and knew it would be interesting. Narrated by John Simm, it is about Alain Robert, a French climber who scales some of the world's tallest buildings and structures without the aid of ropes or safety equipment, even when he suffers from epilepsy, he has been dubbed The Human Spider. This documentary obviously sees him climb some of these buildings, getting a lot of attention from the public, press and authorities, but it also sees what peoples think, mainly his family, other climbers and some of the press footage. It was fascinating to see him climb these buildings both for the thrill and the attention, he even has rock climbing assaults in his bedroom, on the walls and the ceilings! Very good!
