THE BEST OF MOVIES

FREE SOLO is a film in which the cameramen double as stuntmen and vice-versa. In the movie, trained climbers perch on Yosemite National Park's majestic El Capitan to capture Alex Honnold's attempt to ascend 3,000 feet without ropes. The result is an unvarnished, suspenseful look at what's possible when humans push themselves to the limit—and the effect such trials have when they return to the ground.

Simply titled ANDRE THE GIANT, this HBO documentary (produced in conjunction with WWE and The Ringer) is a revealing look at one of the most beloved figures in wrestling history. The film doesn't sugarcoat the unique, sometimes sad, life that came with his gigantism. Even non--wrestling fans will be drawn to this outsized man's outsized story.
