Snowboarding on the most remote places on earth. Living careless, without fear and just doing what you love. That is what The Art of Flight is about. There are tons of amazing shots of going down off the most deserted mountain slopes of the planet. Anyone who likes snowboarding at all will immediately envy some of these runs these guys make. The camera gets really close and sometimes you feel a little out there as well while watching this. That alone makes the film worthwhile. The film tries to add a little more substance though as we also follow the daily routine of these masters of the snowboard. This is where we realize just how shallow this film or perhaps their lives is. They sit around waiting for the perfect weather, traveling from one remote location to the next. The vocabulary seems to consist of only "Wooo!!!" ,"AWESOME" and the like. The interviews only validate this claim and anytime it tries to go a little deeper we move over to the next footage of awesome jumps over the best snow you ever see. At the end I'm not sure if I envy their lifestyle or not, on the one end they live so careless and relaxed that it's just a dream. On the other end it seems they couldn't care less about the other things in life and are just stuck in their nonstop quest for the biggest adrenaline rush.
Anyway the footage is some of the best you'll ever see and that is enough to make this fun to watch. Don't expect anymore more then that though there just isn't.
