    Touching the Void leaves you emotionally and physically spent, and grateful it was only a movie, not a mountain, you had to endure.

    Awesome and harrowing.

    Excruciatingly tense story of a terrible accident.

    "Void" plummets into the nucleus of instinct and consciousness - survival a near-primordial pursuit beyond bravery or weakness. It concocts no comfort about what was gained, but stares in transfixed, unforgettable awe at the horror of all that was lost.


    August 09, 2009

    "Touching the Void" towers above the rest of that rarest of all film genres, the docudrama.

    Sacramento News & Review

    August 07, 2008

    This harrowing, white-knuckle tale of human endurance and gut-wrenching dilemma mingles the dramatization of these events and interviews with both climbers into an unforgettable, sometimes comically deadpan nightmare.

    A slow starter which builds into a chilling depiction of the agonising disintegration of body and mind as they are exposed to the elements.
