Into the Mind (2013) Poster

This is a story of rising to the ultimate challenge. Having the courage to risk fatal expo- sure and the perseverance demanded on the quest for achievement. These are not solely physical feats, they are mental conquests.

Great Film!
First off, this is not All.I.Can., this is a whole different beast of a film. All.I.Can. can be taken literally by the fact Sherpa Cinemas did all they could to produce the best ski movie and try to drive home images that should be making people question the reality in front of them. Into the Mind tries to explore this world of reality from the viewpoint of the "hero". Whether or not this hero's adventure is based off some true experiences of the skiers in this film is unknown to me, but i thought the characters challenges and life encounters were done at a realistic level if you were to put yourself in his ski boots. I get why people call it pretentious, its the same reason our movie industry is falling apart, if a film maker actually tries to convince people to look at things differently they immediately get defencive of the fact they may be doing something wrong the way they are living now. But the point of this movie, I feel, was to push past this barrier of caring about how you were in the past or present and instead, always strive to be better for the future. This message is definitely hidden beneath some enviormental warnings, mountain community angst (they have been there longer and thus believe they deserve to bask in its beauty more than the new guy on the hill who dresses and tries to act like them, but will never be like them) and the nonstop barrage of images which are used to excite the audience into feeling.

Overall, I would rate it a 9/10 as a film and 6/10 as a ski film. I am undecided as to which movie, All.I.Can. or Into the Mind, that i enjoy more. I think each one depends on the mood you choose to enter the film with. High octane energy with a need for inspiration or a more story centered plot that looks to not only inspire but change what gets you inspired.
