My brother, Brent, is the Climbing Ranger at the Black Canyon of the Gunnison. He makes an appearance in the recent climbing film First Ascent. I bought a copy as soon as it was available and love it. It’s a fantastic piece of work. You’ll enjoy it even if you have no clue what rock climbing is all about.
The soundtrack is fantastic, too. I found myself re-watching one particular segment repeatedly just to hear the music, How It Ends by DeVotchKa. Christopher gave me a Barnes and Noble gift card for Christmas. I used it to buy the CD.
With a little curious web-surfing, I discovered that DeVotchKa provided much of the music for the film Little Miss Sunshine recently released on DVD. Jenny and I watched it last night and thoroughly enjoyed it.
So, because of a vertical rescue my brother lead a couple of years ago, I enjoyed the movie Little Miss Sunshine that I would never have given a second glance. He may have never heard of it, himself.
