Toa Fraser continues to be New Zealand's most interesting filmmaker, pivoting back from intense action dramas The Dead Lands and 6 Days to something more like his 2013 ballet film Giselle. The Free Man stands alone as something entirely original again, however - a strangely quiet, meditative piece despite its focus on the truly extreme behaviour of some fairly wild real-life characters.

While some of their footage is truly breathtaking, the bootcamps and mountain-top descents offer up an overwhelming sense of déjà vu...

It's terrifying and compelling; a contemplative and visually stunning extreme sports experience.
