Last weekend I saw a movie called "Touching the Void" at the Uptown Theater. It's a documentary/recreation based on the story of two men who tried to climb a very tough mountain in Peru. They made it up the mountain (they were alone, mind you), but ran into all kinds of problems on the way down. The movie alternates between interviews with the men and vivid recreations of what they went through.
It's a really hard movie to watch, because it does a good job of making you feel like you're right there with them.
I've you've got the bandwidth, check out the trailer
