Must-See Documentaries

Hey Frank,

Have you had time to see these two documentaries:

Free Solo" is in the theaters and on the National Geographic Channel. It recounts the fanatic devotion of free solo rock climber, Alex Honnold. This is a ridiculously compelling film.

"They Shall Not Grow Old" by New Zealand filmmaker, Peter Jackson, is about his masterful restoration of World War 1 British film archives. He transforms what was silent, damaged, almost unwatchable black and white film into real life characters who jump off of the screen. After the film, there is an equally engaging 30 minute behind the scenes explanation of the painstaking work that Jackson and his international team undertook in order to achieve this remarkable and thoroughly humane accomplishment. What a tribute to these long-dead British soldiers. WOW!

I would imagine the latter film would appeal to your devotion to all things historical, and the former would appeal to your incredible focus and drive.
