The Crash Reel Review

In former Academy Award nominee Lucy Walker's latest documentary, The Crash Reel, the sport of snowboarding gets its finest film: a thoughtful and often heartbreaking look at one athlete struggling to come back to his greatest love after a near life ending accident, but one devoid of standard sports movie cliches in favour of true human emotions and bigger questions about its subjects.
