What drives a person to commit acts that would be condemned by many as sheer idiocy?
That is the question posed by the documentary The Free Man, which follows Olympic Freestyle Skier Jossi Wells and The Flying Frenchies (a group of daredevils) as they tour around the world and perform stunts that will give you butterflies and a sense of vertigo from the comfort of your own sofa.
Despite the rather exciting sounding treatise, the trailer doesn’t feel compelling enough to continue watching the finished article. Whilst there is some beautiful cinematography and some truly terrifying stunts, there is still something missing that would really give the documentary a kick.
The Free Man is available for Digital Download April 10th and on DVD April 24th!
