Meet Sam, he writes about wine by day and drinks it with the perfect movie pairing by night. He spent time freelancing on sets and made some short films – they were all about inanimate objects eating people. Hailing originally from the United States, he has spent most of his life in New Zealand, though has never shaken a blandly foreign accent. His life choices were all validated the night he saw Werner Herzog describe Nicolas Cage as the greatest human being alive.
Reviews by Sam Behrend:
Beyond the Edge is the best account of the Everest expedition I’ve seen. Spoiler - they’re the first people in history to make it to the peak.
Rachel’s erratic behaviour is magnified as Megan’s disappearance becomes more sinister. It’s a tension that came close to giving me a heart attack.
This movie became completely engrossing. The characters are so seamlessly real that I felt that same pang of loss that you get at the end of a good book.
The movie is mostly successful in showing off the ridiculousness of America’s longest war and the inverse attention span of the media and the public.
