The Bookies Favourite:

  1. Free Solo 8/11
  2. RBG 1/1
  3. Minding the Gap 14/1

Our Winner:

  • RBG – Despite feeling a little like a documentary made before it is too late (Ginsberg appears in the film as a very frail, but very tough old lady), RBG tells a story that feels like a Julia Roberts movie as a quiet and unassuming legal student rises to challenge the very institution of law and on most fronts wins.

The Academy Award Winner

  • Free Solo

MovieViews Reviews:

Free Solo 2018 Whilst the actual climbing (without any rope or harness or other safety measures) is totally exhilarating, the documentary was actually pretty dull. Gordon 6
Minding the Gap 2018 Starts as a standard documentary about the camaraderie of a 'family' of skateboarders, but then morphs into an exploration of domestic violence in an American rust best town. Felt personal (and somewhat home-made), but didn't fully explore its topic. Gordon 6
RBG 2018 Notorious RBG isn't a rapper, she is an octogenarian Supreme Court Judge who has spent her life championing women's rights. This documentary tells her story and offers a fascinating insight into a remarkable woman. Gordon 8
