Touching the Void - I caught myself holding my breath watching this

Well made documentary that I went to by accident that blew me away. I definately caught myself holding my breath on more than one occaision while watching this movie. The subject is mountain climbing or I guess you could say a near death experience.

I'm a sci-fi & horror nut (not gore) and I'm always hoping someone can make something to scare me - I never thought I could be scared by a documentary. Maybe it's just my backround & having played & worked in that envirement a little. Did anyone else get knocked down a notch or two while watching this?

If you haven't see it yet, it was released in January but only in a couple theaters in my area and it looks like only the major cities in the US have this movie, you might have to wait until the DVD is available to see it.

BTW - makes Vertical Limit & Cliffhanger look like comedy's.
