The Crash Reel


109 min minutes

It starts with a press conference of Olympic hopeful Kevin Pearce talking about snowboarding, and then training on a half-pipes in Aspen and Park City, flying high through the air like it’s nothing in the world. Then, in the middle of a magnificent flip, he lands on his face. That’s five minutes into the movie, a beautiful and wrenching documentary about neurological damage, extreme sports, and the psychological trauma inflicted on a snowboarder’s family.
