This weeekend I went to see a excellent movie, The Grey.
OK so it's not strictly a bushcraft item but it is outdoorsy, and if it inspires someone to venture forth and embrace the nature is that a bad thing?
In essence while appearing a "bushcrafty" type film this is not really one however. The story is about a group of plane crash survivors who are stalked by a pack of Wolves in the snowy realms of the arctic. The behaviour of the wolves is debatable from a natural prespective and the survivors make, IMO, many text book survival mistakes so dont go thinking of it as a trainging manual either.
The sceneic views are stunning and if you like the arctic you'll enjoy it for the cold climate alone!
I havent, however, seen a film for a long time which made me stop and think like this one did, not just about the skills or content and story but theres something deeper and a little haunting about it. I cant really put my finger on it but this film has left me a little disturbed, haunted by a resonance I am still trying to work out.
Its a great film and well worth a view, dont expect a happy ending but sometimes lifes like that - I will definately be seeing it a second time and recommend it.
