The Climb is a mostly terrific and wryly funny autopsy of the pathetic flailings of privileged masculinity in the 21st century. Well worth a look.

Beautifully written and performed by the director and real-life BFF Kyle Marvin, Covino’s film gets precisely the balance of dependency and denial that keeps a bad bromance afloat.

Kuperstein’s roaming camera may sometimes overwhelm the film with its artful choreography, but generally manages to take the viewer by surprise – as does a comic narrative which constantly takes unexpected turns.

The script intelligently dishes out key information in each vignette, with the scenes separated by major narrative ellipses that force the viewer to work a little in order to figure things out.

This sharp two-hander veers from caustic to sweet with acrobatic filmmaking to spare.

Covino’s film is an exhilarating anomaly, if not a wake-up call for the visual potential of heartfelt comedy.
